Plymouth forward Amber Redinger scored six points in the fourth quarter, including the game-winning bucket in the Lady Pilgrimsâ€™ season-opening 31-29 win over Peru last Thursday.
Bremen junior Ethan Pike collected two touchdown receptions for 28 yards as the Lions beat Wheeler on the road for their first regional football title since 1997 Friday.
LAKEVILLE â€” LaVilleâ€™s free-throw shooting and turnover numbers jump off the stat sheet.
Ten of 20 from the charity stripe â€” 5 of 13 in the second half and 3 of 9 in the fourth quarter â€” and 23 turnovers.
Combined, those two sore spots helped Concordâ€™s girls basketball team trip up the Lancers 46-40 at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Saturday.
MISHAWAKA â€“ The 2011-2012 version of the Oregon-Davis girls basketball team is loaded with good, young talent, but light on varsity experience.
By starting the season off with a doubleheader Saturday, the Lady Bobcats gained some valuable experience, splitting two games against Class 4A schools in the Mishawaka Classic.
After easily dispatching Elkhart Central in the morning contest, 64-32, the Lady Bobcats narrowly lost to the hosts, 49-42, in the championship game. Although it was not the outcome O-D wanted, the fourth-ranked team in Class A made an impression.
A pair of Culver Girls Academy alums will square off against each other for the NCAA Division I womenâ€™s cross country championship.
Princeton University senior Alex Banfich and Columbia University freshman Waverly Neer have each been selected to compete as individuals at the national championship meet in Terre Haute on Monday, Nov. 21, the NCAA announced Sunday night.
Banfich, a Plymouth native, won three Indiana high school girls cross country championships from Â 2005-2007 while running for Culver Girls Academy. Neer, of Russiaville,Â won a state title for CGA in 2010.

VALPARAISO â€” Ethan Pike may never have played high school football before this year, but the junior wide receiver played like a seasoned vet Friday night.
Pike finished with two touchdown receptions totaling 28 yards in Bremenâ€™s regional battle of unbeatens versus Wheeler, his first a 10-yarder that put the Lions on the board at the 3:31 mark of the first quarter and his second a heady 18-yarder off a tip from Bearcats defensive back Derek Hartwig with just 3.4 seconds remaining in the first half to give Bremen its final lead of the night.
PLYMOUTH â€” It took Plymouth leading returning scorer Amber Redinger about three quarters to get going.
When she started to find a groove, it helped push the Lady Pilgrims over the top.
Redinger scored six of her 10 points in the fourth quarter, including the game-winning bucket from the low post on an entry pass from Marissa German at the buzzer to clinch Plymouth a 31-29 season-opening win over visiting Peru in a nip-tuck game Thursday at The Rock.
