Plymouth tops 4-way field
Cassi Quisell won two events and placed third in another on her way to first place in the all-around competition, and Plymouth beat out Warsaw 99.15-94.95 to top the field in a four-way meet at Plymouth Thursday.
Nicky Davis placed second in both the vault and the uneven bars and third in the floor exercise behind Quisell to finish third in the all-around.
Maggie Morrow finished third on the balance beam in the win.

HAMLET â€” Thereâ€™s an expression that says there are few things tougher in sport than to beat a team three times in a single season.
Oregon-Davis repudiated that old claim in convincing fashion Wednesday night, handing Culver a 55-36 Sectional 51 loss in a quarterfinal at The Den.
The No. 4 Lady Catsâ€™ margin of victory was even greater than the back-to-back wins they took from the Cavaliers Jan. 23 and 24 and gave OD the right to advance to face Westville in a semifinal Friday at 7 p.m. CT.
CGA uses big 3rd

PLYMOUTH â€” Ancilla College student-athletes work hard at their sport and in the classroom, but they also take time out to give back to the local community.

TOPEKA â€” Bremen found its best scoring balance of the season, and the Lady Lions found a way to win down the stretch.
Senior forward Jenna Pfeiffer put up a team-high 17 points coming off an IBCA/ Pacers-Fever Player of the Week selection, sophomore point guard Sara Slabaugh finished with 11, and senior combo player Kailee Feldman chipped in 10 points to go with eight rebounds as the Lions closed out the game on a 12-5 run to unseat host Westview 51-45 in the Class 2A Sectional 35 opener Tuesday.
HAMLET â€” Argosâ€™ girls basketball team opened pregame warm-ups and broke the pre-tipoff huddle with one word â€” intensity.
The Dragons promptly fired off a 25-4 game-opening spree and led by double figures the rest of the way in a 60-36 Class A Sectional 51 first-round win over South Central at Oregon-Davis Tuesday.
Argos returns to The Den Friday for a semifinal tussle with defending champion Triton at 6:30 p.m. First-round play continues tonight with host OD taking on Culver Community at 6:30 p.m. with Marquette and Westville to follow.
