BOURBON â€” A two-way meet with a conference opponent is always a good opportunity to see where you stack up in your league.
With the Northern State Conference meet still two weeks out, Triton hosted Culver Thursday, and the two schools earned a split as Culverâ€™s boys beat their hosts 84-43, and Tritonâ€™s girls edged out the Lady Cavaliers 61-53.
Culverâ€™s boys team went one-two in seven different events against a young Trojans team ailing with injuries, and the Cavaliers earned a convincing win on a gusty, cold night in Bourbon.
Lady Pilgrims rebound
Plymouth bounced back from a tough Northern Lakes Conference loss at Concord Tuesday with a 4-1 win at Elkhart Memorial Thursday night.
The Lady Pilgrims won on all courts except at 1 singles. Alli Berger beat Memorialâ€™s Corrin Wittaker with a 7-5 third set tiebreaker in the closest match of the night at 2 singles, and Plymouth moved to an even 2-2 in the conference and 5-3 overall.

PLYMOUTH â€”Â Plymouth offensive lineman Dan Samuelson has committed to play football at the University of Pittsburgh next fall.
Samuelson, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound guard, is the fourth player to verbally commit to Pitt's 2013 recruiting class.
Pitt is a Division I program making a move from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference following the ACC's formal acceptance of both Pitt and Syracuse in September. The Panthers finished with a record of 6-7 last season ending with a 28-6 loss to Southern Methodist in the BBVA Compass Bowl Jan. 7.
PLYMOUTH â€” Marissa Sullivan returned to the Plymouth line-up Wednesday night and made her presence felt in all aspects of the game.
Unfortunately, it wasnâ€™t enough to get the win.
The Lady Pilgrim senior had missed the teamâ€™s last three games due to an ankle injury and made up for her time away by going 2-for-3 at the plate with a double and a triple and pitching her way to 10 strikeouts in a 4-2 loss to the visiting Wawasee Warriors at home.
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. â€”Â Bremen High School graduate Andy Wagner was recently named the Southeastern Conference Video Coordinator of the Year by the Collegiate Sports Video Association for his work with the University of Arkansas football team.

Wagner is in his fifth season with the Razorbacks as the Director of Sports Video.
LaVille hands Lions 1st NSC loss
Justin Baker struck out 11 while giving up just two hits for two runs in a complete outing, and LaVille gave visiting Bremen its first Northern State Conference loss of the year, 5-2 at Lakeville Wednesday.
Trenton Priser and Anthony Singleton both doubled for LaVille, which moved to an even 6-6 with a 3-2 league mark.
Eric Knepper went 1-for-2 officially with an inside the park ohm run in the fifth for the Lions, who slip to 6-4 with a 3-1 NSC record.

Bremen: 000 020 0 â€” 2 2 2

NorthWoodâ€™s top four all finished within five strokes of one another to top the field with a 171, Bremen turned in a team score of 201 to split, and John Glenn â€” while led by sophomore Tyler Prentkowskiâ€™s low medalist 2-over-par 38 â€” finished at the bottom of the heap with a score of 212 at a three-way boys golf meet on the Black Course at Indiana National Tuesday.
