PLYMOUTH â€” Following last weekâ€™s historic loss to Bremen, the Rockies are taking some history lessons this week.
The defending Class 2A Sectional 26-champion Lions handed Class 4A Plymouth a 21-8 defeat in last Fridayâ€™s opener, the first such win for the Lions since 1988, and the experience left a sour taste in the Rockiesâ€™ mouths. The team is stressing tradition this Friday as it plays host to another longstanding nonconference rival in Rochester, and the stakes are a fourth-straight Hickory Stick traveling trophy.
WALKERTON â€” A volleyball teamâ€™s first, and sometimes best, weapon is its serve.
That was certainly the case for John Glenn Wednesday as the Lady Falcons handed visiting South Bend Clay a 25-20, 25-10, 22-25, 25-8 defeat.
Led by Anna Schmalzriedâ€™s six aces and Stephanie Radandtâ€™s four, Glenn recorded 65-of-78 serving efficiency in the win.
â€śWeâ€™re not very tall, so we have to serve tough and play good defense,â€ť said Glenn head volleyball coach Merly Meares.
