PERU â€”Â The final score was 9-2, but donâ€™t be fooled â€”Â Thursdayâ€™s Peru Regional semifinal between Argos and upset-minded Oak Hill was never really that close.
The Golden Eagles entered the game hoping for a reprisal after falling to the two-time defending champion Dragons the past two seasons at regionals, but Argos was simply dominant, jumping out to a 3-0 halftime lead and stretching the margin to 6-0 with a flurry of goals in the first six minutes of the second stanza.
CULVER â€” With the approach of the postseason at the flat, fast Culver Academies course approaching, Plymouth cross country coach Jami Holm switched up her teamâ€™s training regimen last week.
Holm changed the Pilgrimsâ€™ workouts from longer distances to shorter, speed-building runs. That added speed paid dividends at Tuesdayâ€™s sectional as Plymouthâ€™s boys team edged out Tippecanoe Valley for the last ticket out to regionals this weekend.

Glenn takes 3rd at Riley Sectional
John Glenn placed two runners in the top 10, and the Falcons finished third at the Riley Sectional at Erskine Park Tuesday to earn a berth out to Saturdayâ€™s Elkhart Central Regional.
Host Riley won the meet with a score of 45 followed by Pennâ€™s 57 and Glennâ€™s 105. Bremen closed out its team season in seventh with a 179 score, while LaVille placed 11th with a 319 score.
Glenn was paced by Luke Runyanâ€™s 17:00.04 for fourth place overall, while Joe Mahank finished eighth in 17:20.
ARGOS â€” Three, oh three. Itâ€™s a magic number.
Few things are more venerated in the world of sport than the three-peat â€” the hat trick, the three-time champion. Argosâ€™ boys soccer team managed just such a feat when it rattled off its third consecutive sectional title against Bremen Saturday with a 4-2 victory over the Lions that was closer than the final score appeared.
The sectional three-peat is the mark of program dominance, but lest you start thinking itâ€™s been an easy ride, think again.
Plymouthâ€™s Cesar Aguilar scored four goals and assisted on another goal as the Rockies beat Wawasee and NorthWood to advance to the Warsaw Sectional championship game last week.

ARGOS â€” The Argos Lady Dragons struck early and often on their way to their third sectional championship in a row, this time over the LaVille Lady Lancers with a final score of 5-3 Saturday.Â
WARSAW â€” Plymouth and Warsaw may share a conference affiliation, but the defending state runner-up Tigers appeared to be in a league all their own in Saturdayâ€™s Warsaw Sectional championship game with the Rockies.
Tito Cuellar finished with a Texas hat trick of four goals â€” including two within the gameâ€™s first 11 and a half minutes â€” to power the home team, and Plymouth suffered a 7-0 shutout at the hands of the Tigers, who solidified their sixth straight sectional title with Saturdayâ€™s win.
