HAMLET â€” Everyone who steps on the floor opposite Oregon-Davis knows what theyâ€™re going to do; theyâ€™ve been doing a long time.
The problem is finding a way to stop the ICGSA Class A No. 2 Lady Cats.
OD used its signature fullcourt trap to create havoc against John Glenn early, forcing 10 turnovers in the first frame while jumping out to a 16-0 lead and never surrendered the advantage once in a 77-47 rout of the visiting Lady Falcons on their home court at The Den Tuesday night.
BREMEN â€” The Bremen Lady Lions lost a hard-fought, turnover-filled game to the Rochester Lady Zebras Tuesday night by a score of 45-36.
The two teams combined for 54 turnovers in the game with both teams getting after it on the defensive end.
After three, the Lady Lions only trailed by three, 32-29, but sloppy play in the fourth quarter cost them the game.
ARGOS â€” Argos boys soccer coach Todd VanDerWeele has been named the 2012 Ball State University Alumnus Soccer Coach of the Year for the second consecutive year, it was announced Tuesday.
VanDerWeele was selected by a vote of other Ball State alumni head soccer coaches at Indiana high schools. A 1995 graduate of Ball State, he guided the Dragons to a 19-2-1 record with repeat sectional and regional titles and the programâ€™s first Northern Indiana Soccer Conference championship since 1998.
Triton stays unbeaten in NSC
Kylie Mason dropped 22 points to lead three Triton players in double figures, and the Lady Trojans remained unbeaten in Northern State Conference play on the road at winless New Prairie Tuesday, 66-47.
Shana Anderson finished with 16 points, while Taylor Hatfield scored 14 for Class A No. 9 Triton, which moved to 9-4 overall and 4-0 in the NSC.
Mason pulled down five rebounds, while Anderson dished out five assists, and Breanna Lemler recorded seven of the Trojansâ€™ 19 steals in the win.

Tritonâ€™s Tanner Shepherd scored a combined 34 points in two games as the Trojans beat Elkhart Christian and John Glenn last week.
Oregon-Davisâ€™ Ashley Campbell poured in a game-high 25 points to lead the Class A No. 2 Lady Cats to a 65-55 win on the road Class A No. 9 Triton last Wednesday.
PLYMOUTH â€” Friday night may have been the tune up, Saturday night was showtime as two of the areaâ€™s top squads squared off at The Rock with Plymouth (9-1) beating Tippy Valley (now 9-2) by a 63-46 final.
The Pilgrims looked sluggish in an NLC win on Friday night over Elkhart Memorial but were anything but taking on the Vikings for area regular season bragging rights.
Valley came in with a number of impressive wins, but with Plymouthâ€™s Mack Mercer on the bench with foul trouble for much of the second half, the Pilgrims were able to post an impressive win of their own.
BOURBON â€” With an already long holiday layover extended by a concussion last week, it took a little while for Clay Yeo to get rolling Saturday night.
Once the Triton senior got going though, he took the whole Trojans lineup with him.
Yeo scored a game-high 27 points with five assists in his return to the court after sitting out Thursday nightâ€™s contest with Elkhart Christian, and Triton rallied back from a 20-13 deficit at the first quarter break with an 18-4 second frame to hand visiting Northern State Conference foe John Glenn a 65-46 defeat at home at The Trojan Trench Saturday.
Lady Pilgrims rally past Chargers at Memorial
Plymouthâ€™s girls basketball team rallied back from a nine-point deficit in the final quarter behind a stifling defensive effort, and the Lady Pilgrims handed host Elkhart Memorial a 45-40 Northern Lakes Conference loss on the road Saturday.
The Lady Pilgrims held Memorial to just three points in the final frame to outscore their hosts 17-3 in the period and move to 2-1 in the conference.
