PLYMOUTH â€” The Lady Pilgrims used the offensive glass to good effect in the first half of their opener with Peru Thursday.
In the second half, they didnâ€™t need to.
Plymouth pulled down 10 offensive rebounds for 11 second chance points in the first half to build a 38-10 halftime cushion, then worked the ball for a 70 percent floor conversion rate in the second half on the way to a 68-24 rout of visiting Peru in the two teamsâ€™ opener at the Rock.
BREMEN â€” Katie Lafferty of Bremen High School has signed a letter of intent to attend Saint Francis University where she will swim for the Red Flash.
Saint Francis is located in Loretto, Pennsylvania and has a Division I womenâ€™s swimming program.
â€śKatie has worked extremely hard, and it has been her long-time goal to swim in college,â€ť stated Meredith Eakins, BHS head swimming coach. â€śWe are very proud of this accomplishment and know Katie will represent Bremen well at St. Francis. Congratulations, Katie!â€ť
BREMEN â€” As head coach of the Bremen Lions, Bob Holmes is tasked each week with breaking down game tape to find weaknesses in the Lionsâ€™ opponents.
The problem is, heâ€™s having trouble finding any in this weekâ€™s regional foe, Renssealer Central.
â€śFirst and foremost, I donâ€™t think they have any weaknesses,â€ť said Holmes. â€śThatâ€™s not something you can usually say about a football team â€”Â you can usually find something that you want to exploit, and we just canâ€™t find a whole lot of cracks in Rensselaerâ€™s game. Theyâ€™re fundamentally sound, and they play some great team football.â€ť
