LIGONIER â With a long layover since their last meet and a change of equipment at West Noble, Plymouthâs gymnastics team had to shake off a little rust Monday.
The Lady Pilgrims performed well enough to get the road win, defeating the Chargers, 95.9-81.275. The team had last competed nine days prior when they defeated Lowell in their first dual meet of the year.
A host of area football players received Academic All-State nominations as the Indiana Football Coaches Association released its annual list recently.
Plymouthâs Adam Lacefiled and Christian Wiers both made the list, while Culver Community also saw a pair of players named in Allen Betts and Micah Budzinski.
Culver Military received four Academic All-State distinctions in Beau Eckstein, Eric Maudhuit, Frank Slykas and Caleb Jadrich, and Tritonâs D.J. Riffle also made the team.

John Glennâs Adam Dodson scored a reversal trailing 2-1 in the final period of his match with New Prairieâs Wade Young to remain unbeaten this season and capture the 160-pound championship at the Northern State Conference Wrestling Meet at Jimtown Saturday.
Oregon-Davisâ Haley Collings went 11-for-12 from the floor on her way to game-highs of 25 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Lady Bobcats to a repeat Bi-County championship win over Sectional 51 rival Triton Saturday.
LAKEVILLE â With less than a minute remaining in the Bi-County championship game, John Glennâs Jake Strong received one word of instruction â go.
The 6-foot-2 sophomore went, and never really stopped, until the Falconsâ basketball team celebrated a stunning 34-31 victory over host LaVille in the 48th annual TCU Bi-County Tournament finale Saturday at LaVilleâs Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
LAKEVILLE â Haley Collings had already had a couple nice outings leading into Saturday nightâs girls championship game at the Bi-County Tournament.
The Oregon-Davis junior saved her best performance for last, though.
Collings put up a game-high 25 points on nearly perfect 11-for-12 shooting from the floor, and she notched another game-high 13 rebounds as the Class A No. 2 Lady Bobcats earned a repeat championship over Class A No. 10 Triton by a lopsided 80-36 margin at the 48th Annual Teachers Credit Union tilt at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
ELKHART â Brotherly love took on a whole new meaning at the Northern State Conference wrestling tournament.
Maybe âbrotherly influenceâ would be a better term.
âMy brother lost (the championship match) at 120, and I was going to make sure the same thing didnât happen to me,â said Glennâs James Frey after winning the 132-pound weight class Saturday at Jimtown.
Moments before he walked onto the mat to face Jimtownâs Cody Koebel for the title, Frey watched his brother, Andrew Frey, drop a 6-4 decision in the 120-pound finale.
PLYMOUTH â The Plymouth girlsâ basketball team wanted to get out to a fast start against the visiting Wawasee Warriors Saturday night.
They didnât seem to have any trouble accomplishing that mission.
The Lady Pilgrims scored 23 points in the first quarter and used great team defense to gain a 15-point advantage at the quarter break. That lead would carry over for the rest of the game as they took the 62-45 Northern Lakes Conference win at home at The Rock.
Plymouthâs seniors put the team on their backs in that first frame.
Plymouth placed seven wrestlers in championship matches, and three Rockies captured individual titles as Plymouth took second at the Northern Lakes Conference Wrestling Meet Saturday at Wawasee.
Elkhart Memorial captured the meet championship with 226 points, while Plymouth came up just a little short of winning the conference title outright with 222.5 points. NorthWood finished sixth with 107 points, meanwhile.
