DONALDSON â€” Two members of this yearâ€™s Ancilla womenâ€™s basketball team have received All-Michigan Community College Athletic Association honors.
Plymouth alum Brittany Himes was named All-MCCAA Honorable Mention while teammate Kaylia Richardson received numerous awards this postseason.
Himes led the team in 3-pointers made this season and averaged 9.3 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.
With 26 points in the Class A state finals Saturday, Tritonâ€™s Clay Yeo set a new all-time Marshall County scoring record of 1,992 points to close out his career with the Trojans.
Culver Girls Academy senior Andrijana Cvitkovic was named to the Indiana-Kentucky All-Star series last week.
Cvitkovic will play in the home-and-home series early this summer.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” The one thing Triton boys basketball head coach Jason Groves wanted to avoid, happened.
The Trojans fell behind early, and despite a Class A State Finals record-setting fourth quarter, never quite recovered in a 55-50 loss to Borden at Bankers Life Fieldhouse Saturday.
Making its fourth appearance in the state finals since 2008, Triton finished 4 of 16 from the field in the first half and never led against the Braves, although Tritonâ€™s second-half switch from man to a 1-3-1 halfcourt zone trap yielded dividends.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” In many ways, Saturdayâ€™s Class A boys basketball state finals played out as a reversal of fortunes.
CULVER â€” Culver Girls Academy senior forward Andrijana Cvitkovic has been named to the Indiana All-Star team by The Indianapolis Star. She is one of 12 players who will face the Kentucky All-Stars in a home-and-home series early this summer.
â€śI am extremely excited and happy with this incredible honor. To be a member of the Indiana All-Star team and become a part of the history and tradition is unbelievable,â€ť Cvitkovic said. â€śI am looking forward to playing with several of the girls who I got to know on the Junior All-Star team and competed against in AAU.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” Spring is here, and the divots will be flying once again as Ancilla hosts its annual golf classic fundraiser.
The tournament is set to take place at the Plymouth Country Club, overlooking Pretty Lake on Monday, June 10. The tournament will follow a four-person Florida scramble format.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” Area standouts Clay Yeo of Triton and Mack Mercer of Plymouth have both been selected as first team picks on the Indiana Basketball Coaches Associationâ€™s 2013 All-State lists.
Yeo is one of 15 players to be named to the associationâ€™s senior All-State list, while Mercer is one of 15 juniors named to the IBCAâ€™s Underclass All-State first team.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” Three area senior standouts were given honors at the Seventh Annual Griddy Awards Sunday at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center in Indianapolis.
Plymouth offensive lineman Dan Samuelson was one of 26 players named to the Big School All-State list, while Bremen defensive back Bobby Cornett and Culver Military Academy defensive lineman Frank Slykas were both named to the 27-player Small School All-State roll.
The spring sports season got off to a rocky start as several area scrimmages and games were cancelled or postponed due to the cold weather and forecasts anticipating snow Wednesday night.
Tritonâ€™s softball opener with Churubusco was called, as was the Bremen softball scrimmage with Penn.
Todayâ€™s originally-scheduled Bremen boys track meet with Concord was cancelled, while the Lady Lionsâ€™ softball opener with Mishawaka Marian has been postponed from Friday to April 20 at 10 a.m., and the BHS girls track meet at Warsaw Friday was cancelled.
