BREMEN â Bremen knew the Northern State Conference Girls Golf Meet would likely come down to a battle with New Prairie.

John Glenn golfers struggled on the front nine to finish third with a 450, meanwhile, as Triton turned in a 461 for fourth, LaVille was fifth with a 537, and Knox was sixth with a 583 at the meet.
PLYMOUTH â Itâs not often you get a lift from one of your opponents.
Nevertheless, thatâs exactly what happened to Plymouth at the Northern Lakes Conference Girls Golf Meet Saturday, as the Lady Pilgrims finished second with a 363 behind NLC champ Warsawâs 354, and Northridge beat out Wawasee to give Plymouth sole possession of second place in the final conference standings.
âI thanked the Northridge coach. I said âMan, we appreciate it.â Our girls needed to pick it up today, and they realized that,â said Plymouth head coach Jack Kinney.

Clinging to a 15-13 lead early in the third quarter, the 6-foot, 180-pound Stevens found an opening and raced 27 yards to cap off a six-play, 61-yard march to give the Rockies (3-1, 2-0 NLC) a little breathing room.
BREMEN âÂ Triton Head Coach Rodney Younis knew his team was going to have to put up some points to contend with host Bremen.

LAKEVILLE â If you blinked during the first half Friday night, you probably missed a John Glenn score or two.
