DONALDSON â€”Â Dylan Martin had just returned to his apartment from school when he and some of his fellow Ancilla College baseball teammates heard reports of bad storms heading for Indiana.
Martin, who grew up in Borden near Henryville in southern Indiana, called home to check on his family. No one answered, so he called his grandmother, who informed him that they were in the midst of the severe weather. As the reports of the devastation reached him, Martin felt helpless when he learned that several of his friends and neighbors had lost their homes.
PLYMOUTH â€” Rookie of the Year Cody Coughlin, defending USAC Mopar D1 Midget Series champion 16-year-old Taylor Ferns and her Lorz Motorsports teammate, Nate Caruth will compete against defending 2011 JEGS/CRA All-Star Tour champion Erik Jones and 30 other drivers at the â€śEric Saunders, I Can, I Will 100â€ť this weekend when the series kicks off at the Plymouth Speedway Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth baseball team lost its second straight game last night, but it wasnâ€™t because the effort wasnâ€™t there.
After getting down six runs in the first two innings the Pilgrims started to chip away at the Logansport lead but just couldnâ€™t get that one timely hit that could turn the tables in their favor, ultimately losing 8-6.
PLYMOUTH â€” With so much on the line, it was an emotional win, and one the Lady Pilgrims needed badly.
As Plymouth and NorthWood players surrounded the No. 1 singles court, Kelly Hoeffler clinched her third set over Kennedy Walter, and with it the Pilgrims claimed a narrow 3-2 win over visiting Northern Lakes Conference foe NorthWood at Centennial Park Thursday.
Plymouth competes at Goshen 3-way
Plymouthâ€™s boys track team fell to a dominant Northridge squad and host Goshen in a three-way Northern Lakes Conference meet on the road Thursday.
Dan Samuelson won the discus throw and finished second in the shot put, while Adam Lacefield was second in the discus, Michael Hartman finished second in the 200-meter dash, Mason Reed was third in the 400, and Matt Lee was third in the 800 for the Pilgrims.

PLYMOUTH â€”Â It was a game of inches in Plymouthâ€™s Centennial Park last night.
A couple more inches left on a hard line drive by April Hampton in the first could have plated two Lady Pilgrims runs early. Another couple inches to the left and Emilee Keilman could have been standing on second base instead of flying out to the center fielder in the gap. And if Bailey Brown could have stretched her arm out two more inches she may have caught a fly ball to right field that ended up a run-scoring triple for Concord.
BREMEN â€” Success in the game of baseball often requires a short memory.
When Culverâ€™s first three batters went double, double, triple, and the Cavaliers scored three runs in their first five at-bats, it looked like it might be a long night for Bremen. But the Lions put it behind them and bore down with two runs in the bottom of the first, then tacked on another four in the second en route to a 10-4 Northern State Conference defeat of visiting Culver Wednesday night in Bremen.
Plymouth dimed at Concord
Plymouth put up just five hits to Concordâ€™s 13, and the Minutemen handed the Pilgrims a five-inning defeat, 13-3 Wednesday night.
Chase Peters took the loss on the mound for Plymouth giving up seven hits and three walks for three earned runs as Concord plated seven during a big third inning.
Connor Flynn doubled and tripled with two RBI for the Pilgrims in the road loss.

BOURBON â€” Tritonâ€™s girls tennis match with Whitko Tuesday was a win-win: The Lady Trojans got the match victory, 3-2, and the Wildcatsâ€™ style provided them a sort of sneak preview of tonightâ€™s conference opponent LaVille.
Triton won in straight sets on both doubles courts and at the 1 singles position at home to move to an even 2-2 on the young season.
Plymouth tops 3-way
Plymouthâ€™s boys golf team jumped out to a 2-0 start to its dual meet season, and Bremen fell to both the Pilgrims and Mishawaka Marian in a three-way meet at Plymouth Country Club Tuesday.
Nate Kolter shot a 1-over-par 37 to lead Plymouth, Ben Schenk shot a 40, and John Ruff and Zach Craft both turned in 42s for the consistent Pilgrims.
Bremen was led by Micah Knoblockâ€™s 39, while Kevin Woodyard turned in a 41, followed by Nate Srehlerâ€™s 52 and a pair of 56s from Joe Zeltwanger and Brad Foster.
