â€śIt was really exciting for our team to have a second walk-off victory in one weekâ€™s time, and especially for Bre to come through. It was a great play for a freshman able to execute and support her team that way,â€ť said Plymouth softball coach Haley Church.
â€śIt was exciting, a great Friday night.â€ť

BOURBON â€” Tritonâ€™s Northern State Conference champion girls and boys basketball teams each received three first-team selections as the 2012-13 All-NSC teams were announced this week.
Senior forward Breanna Lemler, junior guard Taylor Hatfield and sophomore guard Kylie Mason were all named for the NSC-undefeated repeat conference champion Lady Trojans, while senior guard Clay Yeo, senior post Seth Glingle and junior forward Tanner Shepherd were chosen for the Trojans, who tied for league championship honors with New Prairie.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Lady Pilgrims knew Thursdayâ€™s make-up game with unbeaten Class 2A, No. 1 Rochester was going to be a challenge. The Zebras lived up to their reputation.
Unfortunately for Plymouth, the very issue the Pilgrims have been struggling with lately â€” namely, falling behind by large deficits in the early innings â€” is the very strength that has pushed Rochester out to a 10-0 start. The Zebras collected 11 hits over the first three frames, quickly putting the game out of reach en route to a five-inning, 15-2 win at Centennial Park.

BREMEN â€” Mickey Mantle once famously quipped that â€śHitting the ball was easy. Running around the bases was the tough part.â€ť
Bremen baseball found the opposite to be true in Wednesdayâ€™s Northern State Conference game with LaVille. Luckily for the Lions, theyâ€™re pretty darned good at running those bases.
PLYMOUTH â€” A win, is a win, is a win... and Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims made it three wins in their last four games with an extra inning NLC victory over Wawasee by a final of 7-6 in nine innings Wednesday.
â€śIt was a good win,â€ť said Plymouth coach Ryan Wolfe. â€śYou have some of those games, what it comes down to is that we have seven and they have six, and thatâ€™s all that matters. Youâ€™d like to get there a different way, but it is what it is.â€ť
WALKERTON â€” Culver Community battled nine innings with Class 3A, No. 4-ranked John Glenn Wednesday night.
In the end, it was an unearned run that did the Cavs in.
Mark Einhorn reached on an error in the bottom of the ninth, and Culver pitcher Kyle Vlach intentionally walked Justin Gierlowski, bringing up David Jaworski, who took a full count offering from Vlach up the middle to score Einhorn for the 1-0 walk-off win at the Falconsâ€™ home at The Nest in Walkerton.
Rally not enough for Plymouth at Wawasee
Plymouth made the long trip to Wawasee on Wednesday night in a varsity-only Northern Lakes Conference battle.
The Lady Pilgrims plated three runs in the top of the sixth, but it proved too little, too late as the host Warriors handed their guests an 8-3 defeat.
The first inning was defensively focused as each team remained scoreless, but Wawasee broke through in the second when Kylee Rostochank singled to left, advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt, and scored on a deep RBI double from Ashlynn Fisher.
