PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s defense held Northridge 11 points under its average but continued its rough scoring streak without Marissa Green, and the Class 4A, ninth-ranked Lady Raiders spoiled Senior Night with a 39-25 victory at The Rock Thursday.
â€śNorthridge is a really good team; youâ€™ve got to give them a lot of credit,â€ť said Plymouth head girls basketball coach Dave Cox. â€śThey put a lot of pressure on us offensively, so we had a lot of trouble getting shots off. Itâ€™s one of those things, I think, giving them 39 points is OK; weâ€™ve just got to score more than 25.â€ť
ELKHART â€” Plymouthâ€™s young squad finished sixth in both the 200 medley and 400 free relay and reached the consolation finals in six individual events against a tough Northern Lakes Conference field at the NLC prelims at Concord Thursday.
With just one senior and five sophomores on the Pilgrims swim team, head coach Leanne Senter knew it would be tough to compete for a share of the NLC crown and was happy just seeing the numerous personal- and season-bests her swimmers clocked.
PLYMOUTH â€” Any heavyweights looking to make the cut out of this Saturdayâ€™s Plymouth Wrestling Sectional has their work cut out for them.

CULVER â€” In Horse parlance, Culver Communityâ€™s girls basketball team proved it.
Just three days after dethroning Oregon-Davis in the Bi-County Tournament final, the Class 2A No. 6 Lady Cavs upended the Lady Cats again, this time more convincingly than Saturdayâ€™s four-point margin.

PLYMOUTH â€”Â No records, no personal bests and no lineup-shaking breakouts.

BOURBON â€” A Bi-County championship and MVP are nice, but those are just the latest kudos for Tritonâ€™s Griffyn Carpenter.
CULVER â€” Patrice McBee is all grown up.
Not just in a physical sense â€” although at 6-foot-3, the Culver senior is certainly that, too â€” but spectators of Lady Cavaliers basketball have seen McBeeâ€™s game reach new heights recently.
At last weekâ€™s Bi-County Tournament, McBee scored a combined 49 points in three games â€” including a double-double with 14 points and 15 rebounds in Culverâ€™s championship game against Oregon-Davis â€” leading the Cavs to their first tourney crown in more than 15 years and garnering MVP honors in the process.
MUNCIE â€” Ball State junior guard and Plymouth native Randy Davis has been named the Mid-American Conference West Division Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday. This is the first MAC weekly honor for Davis this season and the second of his career.
Davis becomes the second BSU menâ€™s basketball player to earn the leagueâ€™s weekly honor this season, joining classmate Jarrod Jones, who has picked up the award twice.
