NorthWood wins, Bremen takes 2nd at home invite
Bremen went 3-0 in pool play before falling in two sets to NorthWood in the championship match at the Bremen Volleyball Invitational Saturday.
The Lady Lions lost 25-23, 25-12 to the Panthers after reeling off wins over South Bend Riley (25-19, 25-12), Adams (26-24, 25-13) and the Elkhart Blue Blazers (27-25, 25-20).
Plymouthâ€™s Gabe Vervynckt won the No. 1 singles championship in two 6-0 sets at the Northern Lakes Conference Tournament over the weekend.
Bremenâ€™s Sara Slabaugh clocked a 20:05 to finish sixth in the girls closed race of the Culver Academies Invitational Saturday.
CULVER â€” Plymouthâ€™s girls entered the high school cross country season with high expectations. Last yearâ€™s team made it to the New Prairie semistate and most of those runners are back, so why wouldnâ€™t they?
Somewhere along the way, though, the working-for-it part got blurred a little bit.
â€śI think there was a little bit of an attitude that all they had to do was show up when the season began,â€ť recounts coach Jami Holm, who was less than thrilled with her teamâ€™s practice habits in early August.
ELKHART â€” Plymouthâ€™s boys tennis team claimed a championship at 1 singles and two runner-up finishes to finish second, while Warsaw earned four individual championships en route to the team title at the Northern Lakes Conference Tournament over the weekend.
The Tigers won the overall NLC title with 16 points after tying with Concord for first place in the conference round robin standings, while Plymouth finished second overall with 44 points after finishing second in the tourney and third in the round robin.
KENDALLVILLE â€” Rain, rain, go away.
After two lightning delays and with more storms moving in, officials at the East Noble Girls Golf Regional finally decided to delay play until today late Saturday afternoon at Cobblestone Golf Course.
IHSAA rules state that fully half the field must post complete scores in order to resume play at the leaving-off point following a weather postponement, and with everyone still on the front nine at Cobblestone, tournament officials called it a wash, scrapping golfersâ€™ scores for the round and giving them a fresh start as play resumes today.
