PLYMOUTH â€” Another complete pitching performance, another flawless defensive effort, another Northern Lakes Conference win.
Jordan Scheetz pitched a three-hit, one-walk shutout going the distance, and the Pilgrims defense backed him up with its second straight errorless NLC outing as Plymouth stayed unbeaten in the conference with a 7-0 victory over visiting NorthWood at Bill Nixon Field Friday.
Scheetz allowed only seven total runners on base in a super-efficient 78 pitches as the Pilgrims got their second straight complete game after Richie Luvaâ€™s win over Wawasee Thursday.
PLYMOUTH â€” Three wins in three days.
The rain has played havoc with Plymouthâ€™s Northern Lakes Conference schedule, but its hasnâ€™t been as devastating to the Lady Pilgrims as theyâ€™ve been to their NLC foes.
Up against a condensed stretch of conference meets, Plymouth earned its third straight win in as many days with a 4-1 conquest of visiting Concord at home Friday, following back-to-back home wins over Elkhart Memorial and Warsaw to move the Pilgrims to 4-0 in the NLC and 7-1 on the season.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth was competitive but took a pair of Northern Lakes Conference losses to Northridge and Goshen at home on Senior Night.
Northridge topped the pile with a 72-60 win over Goshen, while the Redskins split with an 85-47 win over the Pilgrims. Plymouth fared better in the Raiders match-up but still fell 74-58 in the rainy, windy and cold conditions Thursday.
PLYMOUTH â€” The rivalry between Plymouth and Warsaw is always intense, but given the conference ramifications of Wednesdayâ€™s girls tennis meet between the two teams, the competition was fierce.
The Lady Pilgrims hit the courts focused and kept a little cooler under pressure to edge out the visiting Tigers 3-2 and take the driverâ€™s seat in the Northern Lakes Conference round robin standings at Plymouth.
PLYMOUTH â€” With Warsaw the easy presumed victor, both Plymouthâ€™s and NorthWoodâ€™s girls track coaches knew Tuesdayâ€™s Northern Lakes Conference three-way would come down to a showdown between the Lady Pilgrims and the Panthers.
Plymouth got a big boost from senior transfer Hannah Christy as the Pilgrims trumped NorthWood 70-62, while the Lady Tigers dominated as expected to move to 6-0 in the NSC on Senior Night at Plymouth.
WALKERTON â€” Steph Radant closed the gap, and Cayla Ochs opened a slim lead on the backstretch, narrowly beating North Judsonâ€™s Danielle Sallee to the hand-off. Katie Dreessen created a little space, and John Glennâ€™s 1600 relay squad edged out Judsonâ€™s by a mere 2 seconds to clinch the Lady Falcons a thrilling 65-63 team victory in a dual track meet at Glenn Monday.
PLYMOUTH â€” Once they got the win, the Zebras got in a little defensive practice.
The Pilgrims didnâ€™t put them through many paces in the game.
Plymouth batters put up just three hits as they were shut out by Rochester ace Leighnee Smith, and the ICGSA Class 3A No. 13 Zebras used a six-run fifth to dime their hosts 11-0 in five innings Thursday at Plymouth. With a game against Class 2A No. 10 Lewis Cass scheduled for today, Rochester stuck around to field some balls following the abbreviated win.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth is on a roll.
Jordan Scheetz allowed just one run with strong support from the Pilgrimsâ€™ defense, Chase Peters hit a two-out, walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the seventh to break a 1-1 tie, and Plymouth beat visiting Concord 2-1 in a Northern Lakes Conference game at Bill Nixon Field Wednesday.
EVANSTON, Ill. - Mitch Henderson, a Culver Military graduate and assistant coach at Northwestern for the last 11 seasons, has been named the head menâ€™s basketball coach at Princeton University, his alma mater.
A 1998 graduate of Princeton, Henderson has served his entire term at NU under Bill Carmody, a former head coach at Princeton himself.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth ace Richie Luva has been working on his control.
The lessons heâ€™s learned paid dividends for the Pilgrims in their Northern Lakes Conference opener Monday as Luva pitched a complete seven-inning shutout, and Plymouth opened conference play with a 4-0 win over visiting Elkhart Memorial at Bill Nixon Field.
