PLYMOUTH â€” The last time Rochester and Plymouth faced off at a wrestling tournament, the Zebras edged out the Rockies by just 6.5 points. Saturdayâ€™s sectionals werenâ€™t even close.
Alicia McIntosh scored a game-high 23 points as the No. 1 Lady Cats earned a convincing win over sectional foe Triton Thursday night.
Bremenâ€™s Caleb Coffel won the 285-pound championship via a 6-2 decision at the Plymouth Wrestling Sectional Saturday at The Rock.
HAMLET â€”Â For the first quarter and a half, Triton was right in it.
But as things so often do with Class A No. 1 Oregon-Davis, the Lady Trojansâ€™ early deficits snowballed fast.
OD closed the second quarter on a quick 12-0 run to take a 39-21 halftime lead, then used a 22-4 third quarter to run out to a commanding 36-point lead and put the game out of reach. The end result was a 75-35 victory by the Lady Cats at home at The Den in Hamlet Thursday.
CMA tops Adams
Culver Militaryâ€™s boys swim team handed visiting Adams a 112-67 defeat Thursday night.
The Eagles won nine total events and went one-two in five races, including the 400 freestyle relay en route to the win.
Nolan Kolden earned top honors in the backstroke and the 200 medley relay, Ian Bardwell was tops in the medley relay and butterfly, and Grant Ralston was first in both the 100 free and the 400 free relay.

HAMLET â€” Culver Communityâ€™s boys basketball team encountered a good news-bad news situation Wednesday.
First, the good news for the Cavs â€” a 45-38 victory over host Oregon-Davis at The Den following an eight-day weather-induced layoff for both squads.
The bad news, though, cropped up when the crunch-time turnover woes that led to three losses in the Cavsâ€™ previous four games resurfaced, reducing a 16-point Culver cushion midway through the fourth frame to the seven-point final margin.
Triton wins make-up
Tritonâ€™s girls basketball team jumped out to a 28-3 lead at the first quarter break en route to a 72-35 rout of visiting Manchester in a make-up game Wednesday.
Kylie Mason poured in 34 points, while Taylor Hatfield finished with 10. Krystal Sellers scored a bucket with five steals and six assists, and Lauren Hostrawser finished with 10 rebounds and seven points.
Manchester was led by Sydney Snepâ€™s 10 points and Cierra Carterâ€™s nine points with seven rebounds.

PLYMOUTH â€”Â Prior to last season, the Rockies hadnâ€™t won an NLC wrestling championship since 1983. Now they can boast back-to-back titles.
The announcement Monday that this yearâ€™s Northern Lakes Conference Tournament would be cancelled left Plymouth the de facto champion after the Rockies ran the table in the dual meet portion of the conference schedule. The unbeaten run began with a 39-18 victory over Goshen back on Dec. 5 and finished up with a 68-6 rout of Concord on Jan. 16. Key to the run was a convincing 45-22 victory over perennial NLC powerhouse Elkhart Memorial on Jan. 9.
PLYMOUTH â€” On Friday night, the Northern Lakes Conference will present Plymouthâ€™s Mary Beth Hunter with the NLC Service Award.
In Hunterâ€™s 33 year career at Plymouth High School, she held varying positions as both girls and boys tennis coach, Assistant Athletic Director, and Athletic Secretary. Hunter exhibited a tireless commitment and loyalty to PHS student athletes, staff and programs.
The cold and blowing snow forced postponements to Monday nightâ€™s events, and Plymouth, Bremen and Triton even called some of Tuesdayâ€™s events early.
Plymouthâ€™s girls basketball game versus Clay and the swim meet at CMA have been postponed with no scheduled makeup date as of yet. The NLC wrestling meet, originally slated for Saturday but pushed back to Tuesday was cancelled altogether. The boys freshman basketball game with Tippy Valley was also cancelled.
Bremenâ€™s basketball doubleheader with Elkhart Christian scheduled for Tuesday was cancelled as well.
