Triton unseated the four-peat sectional champion Lady Cats at last yearâ€™s Sectional 51 championship game, and Saturday, No. 4 OD repaid the favor, rallying past the No. 7 Lady Trojans for a 53-47 championship win to dethrone Triton and retake the crown on the Catsâ€™ home floor at The Den.

HAMMOND â€” Plymouth alum Alex Starr became the 15th member of Purdue University Calumetâ€™s 1,000-point club on Saturday afternoon, but her biggest highlight of the day came with 37 seconds left as her three-pointer helped lift the Peregrines to a 77-73 victory over Trinity International.
Starr led all scorers with 23 points, needing less than two minutes to become the fifth player during the Tom Megyesi era to score 1,000 career points with the first of her five three-pointers on the day.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” The Lincoln Junior High wrestling team went 5-0 to win the Indian Springs Invitational Saturday.
After a slow start against Adamâ€™s Central (66-34), the boys improved drastically in the next three rounds by beating Lakeland 103-6, Garret 90-18, and East Noble 102-10. They closed out the day on a high note, defeating a tough Indian Springs squad 68-48.
In a day where the young Rockies were shorthanded due to illness and injury it was a total team effort that got the victory.
FRANKLIN â€” Allison Bayley, a 2010 graduate of Plymouth High School and former member of the PHS girls golf team, was named to the 2011 Tom Bohlsen Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference All-Academic team as a golfer at Franklin College.
The Franklin Grizzlies Womenâ€™s Golf Team won the 2011 HCAC Golf Championship to earn an automatic qualification for the 13th annual NCAA Division III National Championship which will be played in Angola in May.
NEW CARLISLE â€” Fridayâ€™s New Prairie Sectional semifinals were both tales of two halves as Plymouth got off to a strong start but couldnâ€™t hold off St. Josephâ€™s in the opener, and Culver Girls Academy fell behind by 10 at the half and was never quite able to get over the hump against Marian in the nightcap.
The Pilgrims closed their season with a 51-33 loss, while the defending champion Eagles were unseated by the Knights 46-37, setting the stage for a championship match-up between Marian and the Indians tonight at 7:30 p.m.
