PLYMOUTH â€” Growing up in Carmel in the 1970s and early 80s, Indiana State Senator Mike Delph remembers hearing about Scott Skiles and the Plymouth High School basketball team. So it was no accident that when it came time to pick sites for the Indiana High School Associationâ€™s town meeting series on the state basketball tournament, Delph chose Plymouth.
PLYMOUTH â€” For the second straight day Plymouth and Warsaw faced off on the baseball field and each day had the same result â€” a Pilgrim loss.
The Tigersâ€™ pitching staff was excellent, holding Plymouth to only five hits and one run in the contest, a 2-1 Northern Lakes Conference loss.
The lone Pilgrim run came in the sixth inning off the bat of Jacob Seagraves. A leadoff walk to Chase Peters and a sacrifice bunt by Joe Knapp set the table for Seagraves. He grounded an Austin Moore breaking ball between the shortstop and third base and a hustling Peters just beat the throw to score.
Lady Pilgrims finish 6th at NLCs

Plymouth falls at Warsaw
Plymouth broke through with a run in the top of the sixth, but it was too little, too late as the Pilgrims suffered a 3-1 Northern Lakes Conference loss on the road in Warsaw Monday.
