PLYMOUTH â€” After a life-changing car accident last April, Argos girls soccer coach Jon Alcorn noticed Mariah Lineberry was struggling on the field.
The Lady Dragons coach decided to give her the start in their rivalry match at Plymouth Thursday in the hopes of restoring some of her former confidence, and his sophomore midfielder rewarded him with the game-winner.
Lineberry snuck a goal just inside the near post off a Kaitlyn Williams pass in the 43rd minute, and Argos hung on for a 3-2 victory over the Lady Rockies at Kindt Field Thursday night.
LAPAZ â€” LaVille Athletic Director Will Hostrawser presented Union-North School Board members with a proposal sent to him by Culver Athletic Director Andy Thomas to join a new conference.
There has been an abrupt change in LaVilleâ€™s current Northern State Conference with the departure of Culver Community and Knox. According to Hostrawser, the newly-proposed conference is spearheaded by Culver after the school was denied entry into the Midwest Conference.
BREMEN â€“ By their nature, athletic events lend themselves to all kinds of statistics. Even so, the most important one is still the final numbers on the scoreboard.
Despite winning most of the statistical categories Thursday evening at Janeâ€™s Park, Bremen Highâ€™s girls soccer team found itself on the wrong end of a 5-1 friendly with Mishawaka, a game that was much more competitive than the final tally.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s volleyball team jumped off to a fast start to its season Tuesday.
Unfortunately for the Lady Pilgrims, however, they couldnâ€™t maintain their early momentum, ultimately succumbing to a strong LaPorte squad in three games, 27-25, 25-15, 25-20.
CULVER â€”Â Trent Elliott, 6â€™5â€ť senior forward at Culver Community High School, has verbally accepted a full-ride scholarship to attend Fairmont State University, in Fairmont West Virgina. Â
Elliott led the Cavaliers with 425 points as a junior as the team finished at 13-9 last season. The three-year varsity standout currently owns 875 career points at Culver.
F.S.U. is a NCAA Division II program. Elliott will make it official during the early signing period this November.
Young Plymouth lineup opens with win

CULVER â€” According to a report in Thursdayâ€™s Lafayette Journal Courier, Culver Community and Knox are planning to leave the Northern State Conference to start a new athletic conference with North Judson and a trio of Midwest Conference schools.
The three MWC schools listed in the story are Caston, Pioneer and Winamac and their withdrawal would leave the conference with five schools. The NSC is currently made up of eight schools as well. The other schools in the league are Bremen, John Glenn, LaVille, Triton, New Prairie and Jimtown. North Judson is independent.
BREMEN â€” Bremen girls golf coach Don Harrison believes if his team plays like its capable, thereâ€™s no reason his girls canâ€™t break 200 every nine hole match this year. Take out one hole Thursday, and the Lady Lions were pretty much right on the money.
Bremen struggled with some high numbers on the third hole at Sprig Oâ€™Mint but still carded 200, easily beating out Knoxâ€™s 247 in the two teamsâ€™ Northern State Conference-opener Thursday night.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â The PHS boys soccer team will be holding a Nelsonâ€™s Port-A-Pit Fundraiser on Saturday, Aug. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the K-Mart parking lot in Plymouth. Chicken and pork chops will be available for $6 each, along with Nelsonâ€™s pit-tatoeâ€™s and a bake sale.
