LAPAZ â€” It was a night of celebration as Plymouth Speedway recognized its top drivers and heard from two in NASCARâ€™s top series over the weekend.
NASCAR great Ernie Irvan sat quietly autographing hero cards as Andrew Hayn announced the top 10 of all racing divisions for Plymouth Speedwayâ€™s 2011 season. While Hayn called each name, Irvan put down his Sharpie and clapped along with the crowd before returning to his stack. Behind Irvan, Plymouth Speedway owner Ed Kennedy enjoyed the evening with promoter Eric Saunders and his friends and family.

PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouthâ€™s girls hung tough for a half, but the turnovers piled up in the second half, and the Lady Pilgrims took a 49-29 defeat at the hands of a tough Elkhart Memorial squad Saturday at The Rock.
AKRON â€” The Plymouth boys basketball team is living proof of the old saying â€śIf you always do what youâ€™ve always done, then you will always get what youâ€™ve always got.â€ť
Turnovers, poor shooting from the field and a late attempt at making a comeback failed the Pilgrims a second night in a row as it went down in defeat to the Tippecanoe Valley Vikings 54-43 Saturday night.
LAKEVILLE â€” With leading scorer Ethan Pike sitting out the game with family issues, Bremenâ€™s offense struggled Friday night.
LaVille held the Lions to 11 of 33 from the field and their lowest points production of the season as the Lancers grabbed their first Northern State Conference win with a 45-27 defeat of the visiting Lions at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
ELKHART â€” The Plymouth boys basketball team has seen some good opposing guards this season already, but they may have seen one of the best Friday night.Â
Elkhart Memorialâ€™s Todd Johnson was nearly unstoppable at Elkhartâ€™s North Side Gym and the Pilgrims werenâ€™t able to overcome an early deficit in a losing effort against the Chargers, 57-52.
Johnson finished the night with 33 points, making 12 of his 17 shots from the floor even with one and sometimes two Pilgrim defenders guarding him.
