Bremen's Jacob Box dropped 20 points and put in an all-around standout performance for the Lions as the team snapped a two-game losing streak with a 55-49 Northern State Conference win over visiting Jimtown Friday.
Culver Girls Academy's Eberle Miller went four-for-four in championships at the Warsaw Sectional Saturday, winning the 200 freestyle and backstroke as well as competing on her team's winning 200 medley and 400 free relays.
ROCHESTER â€” Matt Hurford never figured that one day he would be the answer to a trivia question.
But there havenâ€™t been many other four-time regional wrestling champs from Culver Community High School, thatâ€™s for sure.
â€śYeah, I guess I am,â€ť said Hurford, a senior 182-pounder, when asked about his accomplishment at Saturdayâ€™s Rochester mat regional. â€śThat makes me feel good. I felt like I wrestled pretty well today.â€ť
Of course, there arenâ€™t many days when Hurford doesnâ€™t wrestle well. Heâ€™s 40-0 this season.
WARSAW â€”Â Despite having one of the oldest programs in the state, Culver Girls Academyâ€™s swim team had never won a sectional championship prior to last year.
Now the Lady Eagles can hang a pair of banners up in the historic James R. Lowenstine Pool.
After earning an impressive 20 berths to the finals at the Warsaw Sectional prelims Thursday, CGA avoided a letdown in Saturdayâ€™s championship round, cruising to a repeat title with 445 points ahead of host Warsawâ€™s 382.
The 38th Annual Girls State Basketball Tournament opens with sectionals this week, and area teams will divide up among three different tournament sites.
Plymouth, Culver Girls Academy and John Glenn will hit the road for New Prairie in Class 3A Sectional 19 action, while Bremen and LaVille travel to Central Noble for the Class 2A Sectional 35 tilt, and Oregon-Davis hosts a seven-team field in the Class A Sectional 51 tourney.
NEW CARLISLE â€” Crossing time zones may have created a little â€śjet lagâ€ť for Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims as they traveled for a tough non-conference game at New Prairie on Saturday, but they were able to revive in time to hold off the Cougars for a 72-56 win.
â€śWe knew this would be a tough place to play; this was a tough weekend,â€ť said Plymouth boss Ryan Bales. â€śWe had two teams in New Prairie and Goshen that are physically tough and mentally tough â€” they play hard.â€ť
To say the least.
LaGRANGE â€” Last year the Plymouth High School gymnastics team circled five meets at the start of the season as meets that they had specific goals for. They met those goals in four of the five. The one they didnâ€™t was the Lakeland Invitational.
Since going to the invitational for the last five years it has been the worst meet of the season for the Pilgrims for some unknown reason. Saturday was their chance this year to break the curse, and it seemed as if the day was starting out like a typically bad one for the 16th-ranked Pilgrims.
