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.

HAMLET â€”Â Here comes Triton versus Oregon-Davis: The girls basketball sectional final sequel.
Defending champion Triton, led by freshman sixth man Kylie Masonâ€™s 5-for-5 finish from 3-point land, shot 60 percent from the field in a 62-41 Class A Sectional 51 semifinal win Friday night at The Den.
In the nightcap, the host Lady Cats reeled off 22 unanswered points to open the game and held Westville scoreless through the first quarter in a 69-27 rout.
Oregon-Davis fans cheer on the Lady Cats in the waning moments of their Sectional 51 quarterfinal win over Culver Community Wednesday.

CULVER â€” The Culver Girls Academy swim program can boast plenty of impressive accolades over the course of its history.
The record board on the wall at the James R. Lowenstine Pool is lined with the names of All-American after All-American. But one bona fide that has eluded the program over its storied history is a sectional championship â€” until now.
Plymouth tops 4-way field
Cassi Quisell won two events and placed third in another on her way to first place in the all-around competition, and Plymouth beat out Warsaw 99.15-94.95 to top the field in a four-way meet at Plymouth Thursday.
Nicky Davis placed second in both the vault and the uneven bars and third in the floor exercise behind Quisell to finish third in the all-around.
Maggie Morrow finished third on the balance beam in the win.
â€˘ PLYMOUTH 99.15, WARSAW 94.95,
FAIRFIELD 29.1, TIPPECANOE VALLEY 28.3
HAMLET â€” Thereâ€™s an expression that says there are few things tougher in sport than to beat a team three times in a single season.
Oregon-Davis repudiated that old claim in convincing fashion Wednesday night, handing Culver a 55-36 Sectional 51 loss in a quarterfinal at The Den.
The No. 4 Lady Catsâ€™ margin of victory was even greater than the back-to-back wins they took from the Cavaliers Jan. 23 and 24 and gave OD the right to advance to face Westville in a semifinal Friday at 7 p.m. CT.

PLYMOUTH â€” Ancilla College student-athletes work hard at their sport and in the classroom, but they also take time out to give back to the local community.

TOPEKA â€” Bremen found its best scoring balance of the season, and the Lady Lions found a way to win down the stretch.
Senior forward Jenna Pfeiffer put up a team-high 17 points coming off an IBCA/ Pacers-Fever Player of the Week selection, sophomore point guard Sara Slabaugh finished with 11, and senior combo player Kailee Feldman chipped in 10 points to go with eight rebounds as the Lions closed out the game on a 12-5 run to unseat host Westview 51-45 in the Class 2A Sectional 35 opener Tuesday.
HAMLET â€” Argosâ€™ girls basketball team opened pregame warm-ups and broke the pre-tipoff huddle with one word â€” intensity.
