BREMEN â€” Two different approaches to battling the elements turned out the better for Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims as they were able to hold on to a 12-10 win over Bremen in a Friday night high school baseball game that was shortened to six innings due to darkness.
The Lions played small ball, taking advantage of savvy baserunning and forcing the issue with the Plymouth defense. The Pilgrims chose to batter away, belting out some timely hits with some power.
The Plymouth High School girls basketball team held its season-ending banquet on Wednesday.

BREMEN â€” With a streak of dual meet victories reaching into the 50s, Tritonâ€™s top flight tandem of Quentyn Carpenter and Ryan Rapp are hoping to keep the string alive through their senior seasons.
They got off to a fair start Wednesday night.
Carpenter earned meet low medalist honors with a one-under 35, Rapp shot 38, and the Trojans got a big boost from No. 3 Tanner Shepherdâ€™s 38 in the windy, wet, cold and generally sloppy conditions at Sprig Oâ€™Mint as Triton opened its dual meet season with a team score of 157 to top a three-way Northern State Conference field.
LAKEVILLE â€” Several members of the LaVille High School boys basketball team will be taking team work into the mission field this summer.
BOURBON â€” Triton senior Clay Yeo can now add another first to his already impressive resume.
Yeo was selected as the first player in Trojan boys basketball history to play in the Indiana-Kentucky All-Star Series, Triton announced Tuesday. He is one of 13 Indiana seniors who will play against the Kentucky All-Stars on June 14 in Louisville, Kentucky and on June 15 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
BREMEN â€” It wasnâ€™t a win, but you could call Tuesdayâ€™s softball game at Bremen a moral victory for Plymouth.
After opening the season with three straight shutouts, the Lady Pilgrims were finally able to get on the scoreboard Tuesday. Plymouth scratched out three runs in the fifth and sixth innings to cut its deficit in half after a fast start by the host Lady Lions, but back-to-back triples during a four-run sixth proved to be the backbreaker as the Lions downed the visitors, 10-3.
