CULVER â€” Last year, the Eagles fell a heartbreaking four points shy of a regional championship on their home course. On Saturday, they wouldnâ€™t be denied.
Led by Leopoldo Burgueteâ€™s winning time of 16:35, Culver Military Academy claimed the team championship with a score of 56, while Plymouth finished seventh with a score of 184, and Triton was 10th with a 254 team tally at the CMA Boys Cross Country Regional.
Plymouthâ€™s Flynn-Scheetz going to state tennis finals
Plymouthâ€™s Connor Flynn and Jordan Scheetz have advanced to the IHSAA Individual State Tennis Finals, winning the Doubles Championship at the Laporte Regional at Kesling Park Saturday.
Scheetz and Flynn battled back from a 4-1 deficit with five straight wins in the first set of the championship, ultimately handling DeKalbâ€™s Landon Miller and Brandon Fruits 6-4, 2-6, 6-3. Scheetz and Flynn advanced to the final with a 7-5, 7-5 win over Wheelerâ€™s Jordon Long and Lucas Jessen in the morning semifinal match.
CMAâ€™s Leopoldo Burguete followed up his sectional-winning turn Tuesday by winning the Culver Military Academy Cross Country Regional Saturday to lead the Eagles to back-to-back team championships.
Argosâ€™ Karlee VanDerWeele made nine saves in goal as the Lady Dragons shut out Hanover Central at the Argos Regional Saturday.
BREMEN â€” The Bremen High football team reached down deep into their bag of tricks Friday night.
Too bad Nate Leeper didnâ€™t get a chance to see how well one of them turned out.
Before getting buried by a host of John Glenn defenders, the senior quarterback managed to get the football into the hands of Ethan Pike, who then avoided his own fair share of players to go 66 yards for what proved to the game-winning touchdown, lifting Bremen to a 35-31 win over the Falcons in a wild and crazy Northern State Conference affair at Don Bunge Field.
NAPPANEE â€” Between the distractions of Senior Night and Plymouthâ€™s new offense, it took about a half for NorthWood to get rolling.
Bowling Green State recruit Coy Brown ran the ball seven straight times for 49 yards and a score at the 7:56 mark of the third quarter to give the host Panthers a 14-8 lead, and a fourth-quarter interception and 26-yard return by defensive back Brayden Troxel set up a three-play, 13-yard scoring drive that ended the Rockies hopes of a victory in a 21-8 regular season closer at NorthWood Friday night.
Cavs ride big 3rd quarter
to conference win at LaVille
Culver scored 14 points in the third quarter to take a 28-12 advantage over host LaVille, and the Cavaliers held on for a 41-26 Northern State Conference win Friday.
The win snapped a two-game losing streak for Culver, while beleaguered LaVille finished the season winless.
FULTON â€” Both teams struggled with the field width and the weather at the outset, but Argos adjusted a little quicker.
The Dragons scored a pair of goals in the 18th and 25th minutes and made them stand up despite some late pressure by Oak Hill for a 2-1 semifinal victory at the Class A Caston Boys Soccer Regional Thursday.
Fresh from its first sectional championship in a decade at the Culver Community Sectional Saturday, Argos moves on to face the winner of the late semifinal contest between Peru and West Lafayette in the regional championship Saturday at 7 p.m.
