Fridayâ€™s game at Culver Military may represent a break from conference play, but John Glenn certainly isnâ€™t taking it lightly.
The Eagles are in the midst of a strong 3-2 season with a signature win over Lafayette Central Catholic in Week 4 and have yet to be beaten at home in two tries so far. And with lopsided losses the last two seasons against Glenn, theyâ€™ll be looking for payback against the Falcons (3-2) this Friday.
PLYMOUTH â€” Coming off a big conference win Tuesday night, Plymouthâ€™s volleyball team wanted to avoid a letdown against non-conference foe Bremen Wednesday.

PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s Homecoming week at PHS, and when the festivities finally turn to football, it will likely be anything but social on the field.
Northern Lakes Conference foe Wawasee comes to town sporting a 2-3 record and a little history when it comes to the Rockies.
â€śTheyâ€™ve beaten us five times since Iâ€™ve been head coach here â€” thatâ€™s more than anybody else we play,â€ť said Plymouth coach John Barron. â€śIâ€™d actually forgotten that stat until somebody pointed it out to me this weekend. Theyâ€™ve gotten the best of us the last two years. Theyâ€™re well coached and they seem to have our number.â€ť
WALKERTON â€” Tuesdayâ€™s volleyball match at John Glenn was a race to see who would break into the conference win column first.
Culver seized the momentum early, winning the first game 25-18, but the host Lady Falcons quickly reversed the tide, jumping out to big leads in the second and third games on the way to 25-8 and 25-15 wins. The Cavaliers got back in the match midway through the fourth set, but it was a case of too little, too late, and Glenn earned its first Northern State Conference win, 18-25, 25-8, 25-15, 25-21 at home at The Aerie.

CULVER â€” Culverâ€™s incredible hockey legacy is sometimes overlooked or even taken for granted, so frequent are state championship titles won (21 so far) and so many are the Culver Academies graduates who made their way to the NHL.
But one whole Culver family has had remarkable success on the ice, that of Academies advancement officer Kevin Kucera. Two of whose sons have garnered attention at the collegiate level for their hockey success, and his youngest son is already poised to follow in their footsteps.
MISHAWAKA â€” Class A No. 3-ranked Mishawaka Marian jumped on visiting Argos early. By the time the Lady Dragons adjusted it was too late, and they lost 5-1 in girls soccer action on the road Monday night.
