CULVER â€” Championships are often awarded to the team that makes the fewest mistakes.
A bad punt snap turned into a big-play South Newton touchdown to give the visitors some breathing room in the third quarter, and Culver Community gave up three turnovers, including a game-sealing interception inside the South Newton 5-yard line with 14.5 seconds on the game clock in a down-to-the-wire 27-21 Sectional 33 championship loss to the No. 8 Rebels at home at Cavalier Field Friday.
BREMEN â€” The first outright Northern State Conference championship since 1995, the first undefeated regular season since 1990. What more could Bremen want?
Well for starters, theyâ€™ll take a repeat sectional title.
The unbeaten, undisputed NSC champion No. 4-ranked Lions (11-0) take on Lewis Cass (5-6) for the Class 2A, Sectional 26 crown at home at Don Bunge Field Friday at 7:30 p.m.
CULVER â€” Sure, last weekâ€™s reprisal win over West Central was a big one, but the Cavaliers didnâ€™t spend long relishing it.
Not with this weekâ€™s sectional championship match-up against No. 8 South Newton looming.
Itâ€™s back to business as Culver Community (7-4) hosts the Rebels (10-1) for the Class A Sectional 33 crown Friday at 7 p.m.
MUNCIE â€” Plymouth High School alum Randy Davis and Jarrod Jones of Michigan City were named to the West Division preseason All-Mid American Conference team as the Ball State menâ€™s basketball team was picked to finish second in the MAC West Division preseason poll Wednesday morning.
NORTH MANCHESTER â€” Plymouth High School graduate and former PHS No. 1 singles player Kara Gilley was named to the 2011 All-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference team.
A 2010 PHS grad, Gilley played for the Manchester College Lady Spartans as a No. 1 doubles player and finished with a 7-2 record in the HCAC as a No. 2 singles player.
Also making the all-conference squad for Manchester are NorthWood alumna Alli Heeter and April Erxleben of Bellmont.
Culver Community assistant coach Chad Hollenbaugh talks with the Cavaliers defense on the sideline during Friday's sectional football game with West Central. Culver beat the Trojans 24-14 to advance to this week's Sectional 33 championship with South Newton.
DONALDSON â€” Ancilla College sophomore Horraine Lewis has been named first team all-region by the coaches of NJCAA Region 12, the college announced on Monday.
Lewis was joined by freshmen teammates JaCoby Smith and Manny Awuku, who both earned second team all-region honors. Lewis, Smith, and Awuku were all eligible for all-region honors by virtue of their selections to the MCCAA All-Conference team a week ago.
CULVER â€” Culver Communityâ€™s Kevin Hogan rushed for two touchdowns and a team-leading 61 yards as the Cavaliers beat West Central in a Sectional 33 semifinal at Culver Friday.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth freshman setter Haley Harrell was named to the All-Northern Lakes Conference volleyball team. Harrell set a perfect 361-for-361 for 110 assists in three sectional matches Oct. 20 and 22.
PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s never easy to beat a team twice, especially on the road, but NorthWood sure made it look that way.
The Panthers put up 406 total yards of offense while holding Plymouth to a mere 151, and NorthWood backed up its Week 9 defeat of the Rockies with a 49-16 rout at The Rockpile Friday.
Plymouth closes out its season at 4-7, while NorthWood (8-3) moves on to host Concord in the Class 4A Sectional 11 championship next Friday.
