GOSHEN â€” Warsaw won all five of its matches Saturday at Goshen to earn the Tigers the Northern Lakes Conference Boys Tennis title.
Plymouth entered the NLC Tournament last Wednesday in a three-way tie with Warsaw and Concord after each team suffered just one during round robin play. But the Pilgrims were only able to win two of their matches at Saturdayâ€™s final round to finish in second overall behind Warsaw.
â€śWe went in the day tied with them as far as points and possibilities, and Warsaw won all five matches, and we were only able to win two,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Michael Delp.
Tritonâ€™s Hannah Jennings fired an 89 at Stonehenge for the second berth out to the East Noble Regional at Saturdayâ€™s Warsaw Golf Sectional.
John Glennâ€™s Hunter Schuman rumbled his way to 144 yards in just 11 carries as Glenn topped Triton 40-6 in a football game last Friday.
As area teams begin to approach the home stretch of the season, John Glenn and Bremen ready themselves for big games in front of Homecoming crowds, while Triton hits the road for its biggest challenge yet in New Prairie tonight. Culver Military heads to John Glenn, meanwhile, and hopes to bring a healthy crowd with it on Parents Week.

If styles make match-ups, this one should be a doozy.
PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s a cliche among coaches to say that come tournament time you can throw out past results, but itâ€™s a maxim that nevertheless often holds true.

PLYMOUTH â€” A wounded Elkhart Memorial team could do little to stop Plymouthâ€™s Rockies on a Saturday night in Elkhart, but it doesnâ€™t mean it wasnâ€™t a learning experience.
â€śWe could have gone up there and laid an egg,â€ť said Plymouth head coach John Barron. â€śWe didnâ€™t. Weâ€™ve played well on the road and that goes to our guys making sure that everybody is focused. It seemed like the week went on forever. I know it was only 24 hours, but there are certain things you do at certain times of the week and it seemed really different.â€ť
CULVER â€” A mini-state meet. Thatâ€™s what running fans across Indiana call the cross country invitational held at Culver Academies every year.
Theyâ€™ve done it so often, in fact, that Eagle coach Mike Chastain has decided to make it official.
Two new races â€” an elite competition for girls and another for boys, matching many of the best teams across the Hoosier state â€” will highlight the 32nd annual Culver meet Saturday.

NORTH JUDSON â€” The fledgling athletic conference featuring Culver, Triton, Knox, North Judson and LaVille now has a name.
The Hoosier North Athletic Conference will include nine schools in six adjoining counties as current Northern State Conference schools Culver, LaVille, Knox and Triton are joined by Midwest Conference schools Caston, Pioneer, West Central and Winamac and independent North Judson-San Pierre. The new athletic conference is scheduled to begin play with the 2015-16 school year to give member schools enough time to align their schedules for each sport.
