KOKOMO â€” A number of area athletes were led by Bremen freshman Sam Lacher at the Kokomo Boys Track and Field Sectional Thursday.
Lacher placed fifth in the 200 and competed in the 100 in his first season with the Lions after qualifying at the Penn Sectional last Thursday. He also ran the opening leg on Bremenâ€™s eighth-place 1600 relay team.
â€śI think it was really awesome that he was able to accomplish all that as a freshman, and his future looks very bright from here,â€ť said Bremen head track coach Mark Yoder.
LAKEVILLE â€”Â Neither Plymouth nor Culver Girls Academy could wake up their bats, and both finished out their seasons with Class 3A St. Josephâ€™s Sectional losses at Newton Park Wednesday.
CGA recorded just two hits in a 9-0 loss to the host Lady Indians in game one, while Plymouth batters rallied with a run in the top of the seventh, but it was too little, too late in an 8-1 loss to Jimtown in the nightcap.
The Jimmies and St. Joe will play in the tournamentâ€™s championship tonight at 6 p.m.
JIMTOWN 8, PLYMOUTH 1
LAKEVILLE â€” It took longer than planned, but it was well worth it.
Behind the arm and bat of Justin Baker, as well as three two-out rallies, the LaVille Lancers defeated the Fremont Eagles, 4-3, in nine innings at Newton Park to open Sectional 35 of the Class 2A high school boys baseball playoffs.
The Lancers now play the Central Noble today at 6 p.m. Bremen faces Westview in the other semifinal contest and will start around 8. The championship game is slated for noon on Memorial Day.
CULVER â€” Argosâ€™ baseball team experienced little trouble piling up baserunners against South Central Wednesday.
Pushing them across the plate proved an entirely different matter.
The Dragons stranded 11 runners â€” five in scoring position â€” and dropped a 3-1 Class A Sectional 51 first-round tilt to the Satellites at Culver Community.
Play resumes today with the hosts taking on Westville at 5:30 p.m.

WARSAW â€” Leah Heckaman gave herself a bit of a scare Tuesday night.
Coming into the discus finals at the Warsaw Girls Track and Field Sectional, the Culver Girls Academy sophomoreâ€™s best throw of the night was only good enough for fourth place, one shy of state qualification.
Luckily for her, she saved her best for last.
LAKEVILLE â€” The old saying holds that the third timeâ€™s the charm.
Plymouth couldnâ€™t argue with that Tuesday.
Marissa Sullivan and battery mate Emilee Keilman both cranked out two-run homers in Plymouthâ€™s third time through the order, and the Lady Pilgrims used a four-run fifth to snap a 0-0 stalemate en route to a 6-2 defeat of John Glenn in Class 3A St. Josephâ€™s Softball Sectional action at Newton Park.
