LAKEVILLE â€” Triton is firing on all cylinders, and the Trojans have plenty of cylinders to fire with.
Class A, No. 3-ranked Triton continued its hot streak Saturday, working the ball inside-out, outside-in and every which way to keep Culver defenders off-balance while connecting at a 62.2 percent rate from the field en route to a convincing 65-54 win over the Cavs and a repeat Bi-County Basketball Tournament championship at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
LAKEVILLE â€” Culver Communityâ€™s girls basketball team just wanted defensive stops against four-time defending Bi-County Tournament champion Oregon-Davis.
Given the Class A No. 4 Lady Catsâ€™ 26-percent mark from the field and Culverâ€™s 23-rebound surplus, mission accomplished.
Class 2A No. 7 Culver withstood foul trouble and a 7-of-19 fourth-quarter showing from the foul line to unseat OD and secure the programâ€™s first Bi-County crown since 1995 in a 50-46 championship round slugfest Saturday at LaVilleâ€™s Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
PLYMOUTH â€” With only one win during the Northern Lakes Conference dual schedule, the Rockies had a lot of ground to make up at Saturdayâ€™s NLC Championship meet.
Led by IndianaMat.com No. 2-ranked Damon Howeâ€™s championship finish in the heavyweight class, Plymouth placed a total of nine wrestlers in the top six Saturday, but couldnâ€™t make up enough ground to shake up the final NLC standings as they beat out Concord but finished seventh, while Elkhart Memorial claimed the crown as expected at The Rock.
ELKHART â€” It wasnâ€™t a championship, but first-year Bremen head wrestling coach Shawn Campbell still got a little misty-eyed at the progress heâ€™s seen his team make.
Jimtown won the championship on its home turf, but outsized Bremen won a moral victory, placing 13 of its 14 wrestlers in the top six for third place at the Northern State Conference Championships at Jimtown Saturday.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Despite being down 6-foot-1 senior Marisa Green, Plymouth outrebounded Wawasee 35-18 â€”Â including an 11-2 advantage off the offensive glass â€”to beat their Northern Lakes Conference foe 45-36 at The Rock Saturday night.
With Green sidelined with an ACL tear â€” the second of her four-year career â€” Amber Redinger and Andria Shook stepped up in the front court while the rest of the team chipped in to help the Lady Pilgrims win the battle of the boards and their second straight NLC game.

LAKEVILLE â€” Itâ€™s not always the big-name players who make the big-time plays. Sometimes itâ€™s the quiet role player who steps up and seizes the marquee moment.
On Friday, that player was Scotty Brown.
