At South Bend
BREMEN â€”Â Was there ever any doubt?
Plymouth grabbed its 15th straight sectional crown Saturday, beating host Bremen 4-1 at DeSantis Courts. The championship represented the programâ€™s 22nd overall.
â€śPlymouthâ€™s just a great team and has a great coach,â€ť said Bremen Head Tennis Coach Andrew Rohde. â€śThey just come out to play every single match. Theyâ€™re a great program so thereâ€™s no shame in losing to Plymouth. Weâ€™re not giving up or anything, weâ€™re going to keep fighting. Our guys came out, and they played well, but Plymouthâ€™s just a better team and they got us today.â€ť
NOTRE DAME â€”Â Alex Banfich says she has recovered from the illness and hamstring problems that disrupted her training much of the summer.
Now, if she could just get her stamina back, sheâ€™d be all set.
â€śYeah, I didnâ€™t quite have it today,â€ť said Banfich, a Princeton University senior, following her 13th-place finish at Fridayâ€™s Notre Dame Cross Country Invitational.
Tritonâ€™s Allie Kann won the Marshall County Girls Cross Country championship Thursday with a time of 20:56.
Bremenâ€™s Jacob Box knocked in a game-tying goal in the 79th minute against LaVille Wednesday to clinch the Lions sole possession of the first Northern State Conference soccer championship.
BOURBON â€”Â Triton football head coach Rodney Younis described quarterback Zak Shively as a general.
The senior signal caller certainly turned in a four-star performance at homecoming Friday.
Shively hit 18-of-25 passing attempts for 261 yards and a trio of touchdown passes, rushed for another, and scored on a two-point conversion run to lead the Trojans to their first win of the campaign by a convincing 41-0 count over winless LaVille in Northern State Conference action.
PLYMOUTH â€” One good half of football wasnâ€™t enough to get the Plymouth High football team over the hump Friday night.
Five second-half turnovers proved to be costly for the Rockies as Concord rallied for 45-14 victory over Plymouth in Northern Lakes Conference action at the Rockpile.
Trailing 14-3 near the midway of the second quarter, the Minutemen (5-2, 5-0 NLC) managed to cut the deficit to four points at the break on a three-yard run by Jarrett Settles.
KNOX â€” Class 2A No. 6 Bremen is a challenge for a healthy lineup.
When your starting quarterback has to sit the game out and one of your fullbacks is also out with an injury, the result can be ugly.
The Lions put on a clinic on both sides of the ball at Knox, scoring on all but their first and last possession before marching out the reserves and holding the Redskins to just three first downs in a 53-0 homecoming spoiler at Knox Friday.
Culver falls at Jimtown
Jimtown scored three touchdowns in the second quarter for an eventual 35-14 Northern State Conference win over Culver at Jimtown Friday.
The Jimmies snapped a 7-7 tie with a touchdown off an 84-yard kickoff at the 10:18 mark of the second frame and never looked back in the win.
Micah Budzinski scored Culverâ€™s first touchdown on a 6-yard fumble return at the 10:32 stop of the second quarter to knot the game at 7-all with Collin Stevensâ€™ PAT.
