Triton sophomore Joey Corder tallied 14 points, eight rebounds, two steals and two assists as the Trojans clinched a share of the Northern State Conference championship on the road in Knox Friday night.
PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s the time of year again when the hysteria starts to build around the state of Indiana with the opening of the boyâ€™s basketball sectional.
CULVER â€” It may be a new sectional site, but Triton is looking for the same result as the Class A Sectional 19 gets under way this week.
The five-peat champion Trojans are hitting the road for the first time in tourney play since 2008 as Culver Community hosts this yearâ€™s tilt, but while Triton may be in hostile territory, the team isnâ€™t looking to let its championship streak end this week.
TOPEKA â€” If youâ€™ve got to prepare for someone anyway, why not get ready for the best?
Thatâ€™s Bremenâ€™s mentality headed into the Lionsâ€™ Class 2A Westview Sectional-opening game with the host Warriors Tuesday night at 6 p.m.
Bremen drew the two-time defending tourney champs in the first-round match-up at Sectional 35 in Topeka, but rather than bemoaning what is most likely the tournamentâ€™s toughest draw, Lions head coach Ryan Eakins was positive about the pick.
KNOX â€” Even after suffering a loss to Culver early in their Northern State Conference schedule, the Trojans knew they werenâ€™t out of the hunt for an NSC title. They simply put the loss behind them and kept fighting.
Triton avoided a letdown on the road against a struggling Knox squad Friday, jumping out to a fast start and cruising to the NSC co-championship with a 76-37 win at Harold Weinberg Gymnasium.
The Trojans thus finish up league play at 6-1, tied with New Prairie for the NSC crown.
BREMEN â€” The Bremen Lions sent out their seniors on a high note as they held the Culver Cavaliers in check beating them by a score of 62-44.
Bremen started the game out strong, going on a 10-2 run, led by senior Don Browningâ€™s two 3-pointers. They were able to keep that going and closed out the quarter with a 14-6 lead.
The lead stayed at eight for most of the second quarter and then at the 3:37 mark, senior Ethan Pike went on an 8-2 run on his own for the Lions, helping push them to a 36-18 half time lead. Pike outscored the Cavaliers 19-18 in the half and finished with 30 in the game.
LAKEVILLE â€” Senior Night didnâ€™t proceed quite the way LaVille boys basketball head coach Michael Edison drew it up.
It turned out even better.
The Lancers held visiting Jimtown scoreless until the 6:09 mark of the second quarter and locked the Jimmies out of double figures until the opening ticks of the fourth quarter en route to a 56-22 Northern State Conference cakewalk at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Friday.
PERU â€” The Plymouth High School gymnastics team wrapped up its season Thursday night at Peru in a four-way meet also featuring Marion and top 10-ranked Logansport.
Logan topped all three of the other teams by posting a 107.1, and Plymouth defeated Peru and Marion 100.5-79 and 100-86.5, respectively.
The Pilgrims were led by their state-ranked duo of sophomore Cassi Quissell and junior Nicky Davis.
Quissell placed third in every event except bars, where she captured a second behind the No. 7-ranked bars gymnast in the state, freshman Kelly Platt of Logansport.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth Athletic Department will be losing a Hall of Famer next month.
Assistant Athletic Director Mary Beth Hunter has been a part of Plymouth High School athletics since 1980. She was inducted into the Indiana High School Tennis Hall of Fame in 1995 as both a player and a coach.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s boys basketball team received two first-team All Northern Lakes Conference selections and one honorable mention pick as the league announced its all-conference nominations Thursday.
Senior guard Joe Knapp and junior forward Mack Mercer were both named to the All-NLC first team, while senior guard David Lee was given all-conference honorable mention.
NorthWood juniors Jonathan Wilkinson and Zach Zurcher were both named to the All-NLC first team as well.
