GROVERTOWN â€” The Fourth Annual Open Team Rodeo will take place at Saylorâ€™s Arena at 2 p.m. on Saturday, a quarter mile east of Grovertown Truck stop on U.S. 30, 4600 N. 1100E, Govertown.
PLYMOUTH â€” A little rain didnâ€™t dampen the spirits of golfers participating in the Ancilla College Golf Classic at the Plymouth Country Club recently.
A brief downpour interrupted play for about 15 minutes during the collegeâ€™s fundraising golf outing but, â€śno one really seemed to mind and we had a great time,â€ť said Alumni Relations director Tom Sibal.
It never gets any easier.
Certainly not for Plymouth native Morgan Uceny, who seeks her third consecutive national title in the womenâ€™s 1,500-meter run at the U.S. Outdoor Track & Field Championships.
The meet begins today in Des Moines, Ia., and Uceny â€” the No. 1-ranked 1,500 runner in the world just a year ago â€” is struggling.
The simple fact is: She hasnâ€™t been running very fast, not by Uceny standards. And she hasnâ€™t been winning many races.
NAPPANEE â€” When legendary Wa-Nee teacher and coach Steve Neff announced that the 2013-14 girls basketball season wouldÂ be his last at NorthWood High School, it was a very bittersweet occasion.
The administration and school board were faced with what could have been a very daunting decision.
How does one go about selecting a candidate that would be worthy of continuing a victorious momentum spanning nearly four decades?Â
HAMLET â€” Oregon-Davis announced Dean Foster as its new head boys basketball coach for the upcoming 2013-14 season on Tuesday.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” The third time proved the charm for Tritonâ€™s Clay Yeo Saturday night.
The last two times the all-time Marshall County scoring leader played at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, heâ€™d come away on the losing end, but in his final trip to the floor of Bankers Life at Saturdayâ€™s Indiana-Kentucky All-Star capper, Yeo finally got the win.
Yeo chipped in two points on 1-of-3 shooting with a block and an assist, and Indiana overcame a shaky start to sweep the series a fifth straight year with a down-to-the-wire 84-77 victory.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” Croatian-born Culver Girls Academy grad Andrijana Cvitkovic didnâ€™t come into Saturdayâ€™s Indiana-Kentucky All-Star finale expecting to win the series citizenship award, but she was all too happy to receive it.
Cvitkovic was all smiles as she was named the John Wooden MCL Cafeteria All-Star Citizenship Award-winner at the half, and the Indiana All-Stars went on to build on a 38-32 lead at the break for an eventual 100-86 win, snapping a three-game losing streak to their Kentucky counterparts Saturday night at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
ARGOS â€” If you were a Major League Soccer club scouting locations to hold a youth soccer camp, the little town of Argos with its population of less than 1,700 nestled in rural Marshall County is likely not the first place youâ€™d think of. Yet when North Central Soccer Association President Bill Mills and fellow Argos Futbol Club coach Andy Stone reached out to the Chicago Fire to host such a camp, the marriage made for a pretty nice fit.
Yeo and Indiana rout Kentucky 114-60
Five different Indiana players scored in double figures led by V.J. Beachemâ€™s game-high 22, and a balanced Indiana All-Star team handed the Kentucky All-Stars a 114-60 shellacking on the road at Freedom Hall in Louisville Friday night.
Beachem finished a perfect 9-for-9 from the floor en route to his game-high, while Triton product Clay Yeo went 5-of-6, including 2-for-2 from beyond the arc on his way to 12 points for Indiana, which knocked down 13-of-22 3-pointers compared to a woeful 2-of-19 shooting night from deep for Kentucky.
PLYMOUTH â€” At the start of the Indiana All-Star series, Mack Mercer set out to prove he could play with the best basketball talent the state had to offer.
The Plymouth Junior All-Star pick scored a combined 19 points as Indiana swept Kentucky in the Junior All-Star series over the weekend, then put in a pair of balanced performances in the in-state Junior versus Senior All-Star games Monday and Wednesday with eight points and three rebounds in that series opener and four points, two assists, a steal and a game-high four blocks Wednesday.
