ARGOS â€” Three, oh three. Itâ€™s a magic number.
Few things are more venerated in the world of sport than the three-peat â€” the hat trick, the three-time champion. Argosâ€™ boys soccer team managed just such a feat when it rattled off its third consecutive sectional title against Bremen Saturday with a 4-2 victory over the Lions that was closer than the final score appeared.
The sectional three-peat is the mark of program dominance, but lest you start thinking itâ€™s been an easy ride, think again.
Plymouthâ€™s Cesar Aguilar scored four goals and assisted on another goal as the Rockies beat Wawasee and NorthWood to advance to the Warsaw Sectional championship game last week.
LaVille senior captain Nina Zeiger scored a pair of goals as LaVille valiantly battled back from a 3-0 deficit in an eventual loss to Argos at the Dragonsâ€™ home sectional Saturday.
ARGOS â€” The Argos Lady Dragons struck early and often on their way to their third sectional championship in a row, this time over the LaVille Lady Lancers with a final score of 5-3 Saturday.Â
WARSAW â€” Plymouth and Warsaw may share a conference affiliation, but the defending state runner-up Tigers appeared to be in a league all their own in Saturdayâ€™s Warsaw Sectional championship game with the Rockies.
Tito Cuellar finished with a Texas hat trick of four goals â€” including two within the gameâ€™s first 11 and a half minutes â€” to power the home team, and Plymouth suffered a 7-0 shutout at the hands of the Tigers, who solidified their sixth straight sectional title with Saturdayâ€™s win.
Binkley and Dragons down Lions at Culver championship
Damon Binkley scored a pair of goals to help the Argos boys soccer team rally past Bremen to earn its third straight sectional championship Saturday at Culver Community, 4-2.
Max Bailey scored in the 35th minute to give the Dragons a tenuous 1-0 halftime edge, but Danny Reynoso and Sam Lacher scored in the 49th and 62nd minutes to give the Lions the advantage, 3-1.

Boys cross country
Glenn takes 2nd at NSCs
John Glenn's boys cross country team put up a score of 46 points behind New Prairie's score of 32 for runner-up honors at the Northern State Conference Cross Country Championship meet Tuesday.
Triton finished third with 78 points, while Bremen was fourth with a 113 score, Knox was sixth with a 162, LaVille was seventh with a 191, and Culver Community finished two points back of the Lancers to round out the NSC team standings.
WARSAW â€” On Monday, Plymouthâ€™s Rockies earned a reprisal over an NLC foe.
At Wednesdayâ€™s Warsaw Sectional semifinal, they backed up a win.
Cesar Aguilar notched two goals for Plymouth, and the Rockies defense combined for the blank sheet in a 2-0 win over conference-rival NorthWood.
Plymouth now advances to get another crack at host Warsaw at the tournament championship Saturday at 2 p.m. following the Tigersâ€™ come-from-behind 4-3 win over Culver Military Academy earlier Wednesday evening.
CULVER â€” Plymouthâ€™s hopes of its first regional tennis title in more than two decades came to a crashing halt at the hands of its bitterest conference rival Wednesday.
The Pilgrims entered the championship round of the Culver Military Academy Regional hoping to reprise an earlier Northern Lakes Conference loss to the Tigers â€” one of just three losses for Plymouth headed into Wednesdayâ€™s regional final â€”Â but instead fell in another narrow 3-2 decision.
Still, Plymouth head coach Michael Delp couldnâ€™t fault his teamâ€™s effort.
