BREMEN â€” When Culver Military Academyâ€™s weary swim team clinched just the second unbeaten dual meet season in program history, the Eagles didnâ€™t celebrate or cheer.
Worn out from a grueling week stretch in which theyâ€™ve swum three meets, CMAâ€™s swimmers simply gave a subdued thank you to Bremen for hosting and thanks to both the Lions and Plymouth for the good competition after topping the three-way field with 140 points ahead of Bremenâ€™s 102 and the Pilgrimsâ€™ 79 in the Eaglesâ€™ regular-season closer at Bremen Tuesday.
While the boys closed out their regular season at the Bremen three-way meet Tuesday, girls area swim teams were gearing up for Thursdayâ€™s sectional prelims and the start of the IHSAAâ€™s 38th annual state tournament.
Plymouth and Culver Girls Academy travel to the Warsaw Sectional Thursday with the finals set for Saturday, while Bremen travels to the Penn tournament Thursday with both preliminary rounds set for 5:30 p.m., and the finals at both tourneys slated for 9 a.m. Saturday.
SOUTH BEND â€” It was a tale of two halves for the Lady Pilgrim basketball team at St. Joseph High School Tuesday night.
Plymouth used solid defense to take a 17-9 lead in the first half but couldnâ€™t hold on in a 28-24 loss to the sectional-rival Indians.
Plymouth was back to its defensive self in the first half, causing the Indians to shoot only 14 percent from the floor while finding some good looks offensively, mostly on out-of-bounds plays, to head into the locker room with a 17-9 lead.
