BREMEN â€” Trouble converting from the free throw line has translated into a troubled start for Bremen early this season. The Lady Lions turned things around both at the stripe and in the win-loss column Tuesday.
Bremen hit 20 of 25 from the foul line, and the Lions claimed their first win of the season with a convincing 51-40 win over visiting Plymouth.
ARGOS â€”Â Argos girls basketball head coach Nick Medich searched for an explanation, oddly enough, for how his team beat Culver Community Tuesday.
He quickly eliminated the 36 percent field-goal percentage, 23 turnovers, and generally sloppy play before settling on free throws.
The Dragons drained 15-of-20 tries from the charity stripe â€”Â compared to 4 of 7 for the Cavs â€”Â and held off Culver in a 37-30 win at Phil Weybright Gymnasium.
LaVille earns 1st win
LaVille earned its first win of the basketball season Tuesday, handing host Elkhart Christian a 58-18 rout.
The Lady Lancers held Elkhart Christian to six points in the first half â€”Â including a single point in the second frame â€” en route to the road win.
Hannah Herbster led the Lady Lancers in scoring with 12 points, while Jesse Feitz also finished in double digits with 10, and both Amanda Carbiener and McKenzie Leed chipped in nine.
Elkhart Christian was led by six points from Hailey Fultz.
TERRE HAUTE â€”Â Culver Girls Academy alumni Alex Banfich and Waverly Neer both earned All-America honors at the NCAA Womenâ€™s Cross Country Championships at the LaVern Gibson Championship Course in Terre Haute Monday.
Banfich, a Plymouth native and senior at Princeton University, finished fifth with a time of 19:45 flat in her final go-round at the 6k nationals after placing 20th at last yearâ€™s meet. Neer, a native of Russiaville and freshman at Columbia University, just made the All-America cut with a 20:30.4 for 40th place after being diagnosed with a stress fracture in September.
Wabash wins first round of NCAA tourney
North Judson graduate C.J. Gum and the Wabash defense were the difference Saturday in Wabashâ€™s first-round NCAA playoff win over Illinois College, 38-20.

Bremenâ€™s Braxston Miller wrapped up an outstanding high school career Friday as he finished with 60 all-purpose yards in the Lionsâ€™ loss to Fort Wayne Bishop Luers at the Class 2A Northern Semistate.
TERRE HAUTE â€” One is winding down her college career, the other just getting started.
Both say they are feeling fine, now, following injuries that set them back at the start of the season.
Each chose an Ivy League college to attend, and at an historic conference championship meet a couple weeks ago â€” run in a driving snowstorm â€” they finished the race almost side-by-side.
Now, Alex Banfich and Waverly Neer will square off against each other at todayâ€™s NCAA cross country championships, on the same course where each made her mark in high school.
