BOURBON â€” What a difference a day can make.
Twenty-four hours after suffering a 13-0 loss to South Bend Riley in its opener on Wednesday, Tritonâ€™s baseball team bounced back with an 11-0, five-inning victory over visiting Oregon-Davis at home in Bourbon Thursday night.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was a shaky opener for Plymouth softball Tuesday night.
The Lady Pilgrims struggled inside the circle, in the field and at the plate against a more experienced Mishawaka lineup, ultimately falling 18-0 in five innings at Centennial Park.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth High School cheerleader, Haley Stein, recently signed her letter of intent to join the Ancilla Chargers cheer squad.
As a member of the PHS cheer team, Stein lettered four years and is currently varsity captain. While attending cheer camp, she was voted MVP All-Around Cheerleader for talent, spirit, and personality. Stein has also been an 11-year member of the All-Star cheer squad at Gymnastics BEST Gym, located in Koontz Lake.
The CMA Prep Hockey team will be playing for a national championship after beating the Ohio Blue Jackets, 4-1, in the finals of the Mid-Am District Tournament on March 16. It is the first time Prep has won the district.
The team will travel to Green Bay, Wis., for the national tournament April 2-6. The tournament schedule will be posted after all the teams have qualified.
Two Lady Pilgrim gymnasts competed in the Huntington North Regional Friday night.Â Senior Nicole Davis and junior Cassi Quissell earned their spots in the regional field by qualifying at sectionals last weekend.Â
BOURBON â€”Â In games as close as Culver Communityâ€™s regional showdown with North White, outcomes are decided in inches.
Alex Grahamâ€™s missed corner 3 was tipped once, twice, three times towards the rim in a hopper underneath the Culver basket, but the ball ultimately rattled out in a heartbreaking 70-69 overtime loss for the Cavaliers.
The Vikings eventually lost out in the Triton Regional championship to Marquette Catholic 79-49.

SOUTH BEND â€”Â New game, new stakes, same result.
The last time Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims faced Mishawaka back on Feb. 19, they claimed a 52-34 win on their home court at The Rock. Plymouth opened Class 4A Sectional play with a similar 53-34 victory over the Cavemen Wednesday night.
CULVER â€” Culver Communityâ€™s boys basketball team attempted quality shots almost from the opening tip Tuesday.
Once the second quarter rolled around those shots really started falling.
The host Cavs rattled off 11 unanswered second-frame points to construct a double-digit advantage and nailed 9-of-11 tries from the floor in the third stanza to put away a 64-31 Class A Sectional 51 first-round win over LaCrosse at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.
Culver advances to a Friday semifinal bout against six-time defending sectional champion Triton at 6:30 p.m. Argos and South Central follow at 8 p.m.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Lady Pilgrims saved their best for last. Their last home meet, that is.
Plymouth gymnastics notched a team score of 103.25, just .4 of a point shy of the school record as the Pilgrims earned a split with Peru and Logansport in their final home meet of the season Thursday.
No. 3-ranked Logan won the three-way with a 105.5 score, while Plymouth placed just 2.25 back and Peru rounded out the meet with a 34.4 score.
â€śWeâ€™re on our way to sectionals. Weâ€™re at the peak,â€ť said PHS head coach Jana Lyon.
