Cavs edge LaVille in PKs
Culver Community beat out LaVille in sudden death penalty kicks after two overtime periods during a boys soccer match in Culver Tuesday night.
The Cavaliers outshot the Lancers 5-4 in PKS to take a thrilling 3-2 victory over the visitors in Northern State Conference play
Nick Pritz gave Culver a narrow 1-0 lead on a Henrick Bill assist in the second half, but Justin Gramza evened it up off a Tristen Weaver assist to force overtime.
BREMEN â€” Bremenâ€™s one-two punch of Chelsea Huppert and Cassie Sears is hard to handle under any circumstances. Throw in a surging Shelby Zellmer, and it can make for a short night for opponents.
Huppert and Sears finished with 15 and 13 kills, respectively, and Zellmer stepped up big with seven of her own as the Lady Lions put away visiting John Glenn in three games in a Northern State Conference volleyball match at Bremen Monday, 25-15, 25-20, 25-10.
ARGOS â€” The Argos girls soccer team has shown flashes of brilliance this season and has disappointed at others. That should perhaps be expected of a team with just four returning starters, but the test doesnâ€™t get any bigger than taking on the defending state champs.
The young Dragons showed plenty of spark while fighting to a 0-0 draw against Mishawaka Marian Monday in what head coach Jon Alcorn called Argosâ€™ best result of the year.
Triton wins Merrillville Invite
Tritonâ€™s boys tennis team beat out Centreville by a point and host Merrillville by two points to win the Merrillville Invitational with 33 points Saturday.
Jared Fisher was the meet champion at 3 singles, and Jake Oldham and Austin Sellers combined for the 2 doubles championship for Triton. Lucas Shafer and Darrin Harrell were meet runners-up at 1 doubles, while Alex Eib placed sixth at 2 singles, and Dean Howdeshell finished seventh after breaking strings in both rackets early in the tournament and playing with a borrowed racket.
WINONA LAKE â€” Last September, NorthWoodâ€™s Heidi Morganthaler fell a little short in her bid for a state berth. She may have lost that East Noble Girls Regional playoff, but she learned a valuable lesson along the way, a lesson she applied en route to the individual Warsaw Sectional championship Saturday.
NEW CARLISLE â€” Brooke Bahrâ€™s second-place finish in the girls Class A race helped Bremen to a spot on the awards stand at Saturdayâ€™s New Prairie cross country invitational.
The Lions scored 183 points and finished fourth in the small school division, just behind West Central. There were 36 teams in girls Class A.
New Prairieâ€™s invitational is one of the largest high school cross country meets in Indiana. Over 100 high schools participated.

LaVille 23, Knox 6
LaPORTE â€”Â Culver Girls Academy made the most of its new sectional realignment on Friday.
The Lady Eagles carded a 349 at Beechwood in their first year after transferring out of the Warsaw tourney to the LaPorte Sectional, beating out the field by a convincing 43 strokes to end a 14-year sectional championship drought.
LaPorte shot 392 for runner-up honors in the team standings, while John Glenn earned its second straight team regional berth just a stroke back, and Knox finished sixth with a 475 score.
ELKHART â€” The Plymouth football game vs Elkhart Memorial at 7:30 tonight will take place at Memorial, the PHS Athletic Department reported Friday.
The Northern Lakes Conference football game between the Rockies and the Chargers was originally moved back a day after a transformer at Elkhart Memorial was struck by lightning, leaving the schoolâ€™s outdoor sports facilities without lights.
As of press deadline Friday morning, school officials were still uncertain as to whether tonightâ€™s rescheduled game was to be played at Charger Field or at Elkhart Centralâ€™s Rice Field.
ELKHART â€”Â Due to a blown transformer at Charger Field, tonightâ€™s Plymouth football game at Elkhart Memorial has been postponed until Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
The transformer in question was struck by lightning, cutting power to all of Memorialâ€™s outdoor events, and parts to repair the transformer were unavailable until noon today, said school officials. If the transformer canâ€™t be repaired today, then tomorrow nightâ€™s contest will be held at Rice Field at Elkhart Central at 7:30 p.m.
