Lions win Kouts Relays
Bremenâ€™s boys track and field team won seven different events, and the Lions won the team championship at the Kouts Relays Saturday.
Reid Zellmer was a triple winner for Bremen in the open 400, the 4x400 relay with Jon Stoller, Joel Miller and Kevin Heckaman and the 4x100 relay with Heckaman, Caleb Walter and Evan Wilson.
Thomas Dean won the 800 and ran anchor for Bremenâ€™s winning 3200 relay team comprised of himself, Clayton Thornton, Bryan Starcevich and Kris Wickens. Nate Strehler won the discus, and Beau Beeson won the pole vault at the big meet.
PLYMOUTH â€” Analyzing the Plymouth Pilgrimsâ€™ Friday game with NorthWood, you could say the weather was beautiful at Bill Nixon Field.
It was hard to find much else positive as Plymouth had one of those games teams have in a long baseball season, dropping a 15-0 decision in five innings. The Pilgrims surrendered a seven spot to the Panthers â€” highlighted by a three-run homer by NorthWoodâ€™s Blake Cleveland â€” digging a hole it was hard to dig out of.
PLYMOUTH â€” Freshman Bre Martin drove in Bailey Brown on an 0-2 count for the game-winning run, and Plymouthâ€™s softball team clinched a 4-3 Northern Lakes Conference victory over visiting NorthWood Friday night.
It was the second walk-off NLC win of the week for the Lady Pilgrims, who
â€śIt was really exciting for our team to have a second walk-off victory in one weekâ€™s time, and especially for Bre to come through. It was a great play for a freshman able to execute and support her team that way,â€ť said Plymouth softball coach Haley Church.
â€śIt was exciting, a great Friday night.â€ť
Bremen shells Knox
Bremen racked up 17 hits, Knox committed six errors, and the Lady Lions polished off their hosts in five, 18-0 Friday night.
Mikayla Gardner finished 4-for-4 at the plate with three RBIs, four runs and two stolen bases.
Lexi Pate went the distance inside the circle, surrendering only three hits with six strikeouts and three walks.
Emily Molden homered and Megan Stouder tripled for Bremen in the Northern State Conference win.
Emmy Stephenson finished with two hits, and Madison Brown doubled for the Redskins.
â€˘ BREMEN 18, KNOX 0 (5 inn.)
BOURBON â€” Tritonâ€™s Northern State Conference champion girls and boys basketball teams each received three first-team selections as the 2012-13 All-NSC teams were announced this week.
Senior forward Breanna Lemler, junior guard Taylor Hatfield and sophomore guard Kylie Mason were all named for the NSC-undefeated repeat conference champion Lady Trojans, while senior guard Clay Yeo, senior post Seth Glingle and junior forward Tanner Shepherd were chosen for the Trojans, who tied for league championship honors with New Prairie.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Lady Pilgrims knew Thursdayâ€™s make-up game with unbeaten Class 2A, No. 1 Rochester was going to be a challenge. The Zebras lived up to their reputation.
Unfortunately for Plymouth, the very issue the Pilgrims have been struggling with lately â€” namely, falling behind by large deficits in the early innings â€” is the very strength that has pushed Rochester out to a 10-0 start. The Zebras collected 11 hits over the first three frames, quickly putting the game out of reach en route to a five-inning, 15-2 win at Centennial Park.
Plymouth edges Memorial, stays unbeaten in NLC
Allie Berger held off Elkhart Memorialâ€™s Bailey Denton 6-1, 2-6, 6-4 at 1 singles, and a modified Plymouth girls tennis lineup stayed unbeaten in Northern Lakes Conference play with a narrow 3-2 victory over the visiting Chargers Thursday.
Marissa German partnered with Ellen Smith for a 6-2, 6-1 win at 1 doubles as Andria Shook made the move up to 2 singles and Mikayla German moved down to 3 singles, where both suffered straight-set losses, Germanâ€™s in a closely contested 6-4, 7-6(2) match with Memorialâ€™s Taelor Grose.
BREMEN â€” Mickey Mantle once famously quipped that â€śHitting the ball was easy. Running around the bases was the tough part.â€ť
Bremen baseball found the opposite to be true in Wednesdayâ€™s Northern State Conference game with LaVille. Luckily for the Lions, theyâ€™re pretty darned good at running those bases.
PLYMOUTH â€” A win, is a win, is a win... and Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims made it three wins in their last four games with an extra inning NLC victory over Wawasee by a final of 7-6 in nine innings Wednesday.
â€śIt was a good win,â€ť said Plymouth coach Ryan Wolfe. â€śYou have some of those games, what it comes down to is that we have seven and they have six, and thatâ€™s all that matters. Youâ€™d like to get there a different way, but it is what it is.â€ť
WALKERTON â€” Culver Community battled nine innings with Class 3A, No. 4-ranked John Glenn Wednesday night.
In the end, it was an unearned run that did the Cavs in.
Mark Einhorn reached on an error in the bottom of the ninth, and Culver pitcher Kyle Vlach intentionally walked Justin Gierlowski, bringing up David Jaworski, who took a full count offering from Vlach up the middle to score Einhorn for the 1-0 walk-off win at the Falconsâ€™ home at The Nest in Walkerton.
