ARGOS â€” Similar game, same result.
Oregon-Davis claimed its first win of the season over Argos in the Bi-County consolation round Jan. 21, and the Dragons were hoping for a reprisal on their home floor Friday. But once again Argos couldnâ€™t hold onto a tentative lead down the stretch, and the Bobcats outlasted their hosts for a 48-46 win at Phil Weybright Gymnasium.

PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth has been something of a first half team lately, building big cushions in the first two quarters and holding off opponents in the second half.
That all changed Thursday.
Not that the Pilgrims had a slow start â€” they opened with a 21-14 first frame and led by six at 32-26 at the half â€” but it was an 18-6 third quarter that made all the difference, and Plymouth cruised to a 69-45 Northern Lakes Conference season-closing win over visiting Wawasee on Senior Night at The Rock.
CMA earns 20 finals cuts at Warsaw preliminaries
Culver Military Academy earned a total of 20 top eight berths to the finals at the Warsaw Boys Swim Sectional prelims Thursday, while Plymouth recorded six top eight finishes to move onto Saturdayâ€™s finals.
CMA earned three finals berth in three different races, including a one-two finish in the 200 free as Jorge DeLaVega topped the preliminary field and Samuel Curtis earned second.
WARSAW â€” Culver Academies head coach Major Tom Duckett is mum about making any predictions about a sectional championship.
Two weeks ago his girls swim team surprised him with the programâ€™s first-ever team championship, and thatâ€™s just what the boys are hoping to do as they enter tonightâ€™s Warsaw Sectional prelims on the heels of an undefeated dual meet season.
Plymouth joins the 13-team Warsaw field tonight at 5:30 p.m. with the finals and consols set for the top eight and 16, respectively, Saturday morning, while Bremen enters the 10-team South Bend Riley Sectional field.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” Last year, Abraham Hallâ€™s fourth-place finish at semistate earned him a tough draw heading into the state wrestling finals, and he missed the cut from Fridayâ€™s opening round to the second day of the tourney Saturday.
The Bremen seniorâ€™s heavyweight championship at Merrillville last Saturday gave him a more favorable draw this time around, and heâ€™s hoping to capitalize with a top finish as the 74th Annual IHSAA Individual State Wrestling Finals get underway Friday at 6 p.m. with the quarterfinals set to begin Saturday at 9:30 at Conseco Fieldhouse.
CMA cruises past Adams
Culver Military jumped out to an early 5-1 lead to cruise to an eventual 6-3 victory over visiting South Bend Adams in a varsity hockey game Wednesday at The Academies.
Brock Frazer put CMA on the board at the 7:03 mark of the first period. His goal at the 13:50 stop of the second broke a 1-1 tie, and he went on to score a hat trick. Daniel Vaughan had two goals and an assist, and Kyle Bartelman finished with a goal and two assists in the win.

PLYMOUTH â€” The coaches had glowing things to say about one another and about each otherâ€™s squads after the game, but the Pilgrims showed the Eagles no love at the outset on Valentineâ€™s Day.
Plymouth used an 18-4 second quarter to jump out to a 31-11 halftime lead then held off Culver Military in the second half for a 53-36 win in a coaching showdown between Bethel products Ryan Bales and Mark Galloway Tuesday at The Rock.

Rochester was led by Jonathon Oâ€™Dellâ€™s 18 points in the loss.
