BREMEN â€” Last year Bremenâ€™s girls tennis team split the Northern State Conference title with Jimtown. Not that theyâ€™re greedy, but this yearâ€™s Lady Lions would like nothing better than to keep the NSC championship all to themselves.
Bremen took a big step toward that goal at DeSantis Courts Thursday night, when the Lions won both of their conference tournament openers.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth kept its hopes alive for at least a second-place conference finish as rain cut short the second round of the Northern Lakes Conference Girls Tennis Tournament in Centennial Park Thursday.

Eight area schools will filter into three different sectional sites as Argos, Culver Community and Triton head west to the six-team Class A South Central (Union Mills) Sectional, Bremen and LaVille travel to the six-team Class 2A Westview tourney, and Plymouth, John Glenn and Culver Girls Academy converge on the seven-team Class 3A South Bend St. Joseph Sectional at Newton Park.

PLYMOUTH - With flood plain issues nearly out of the way the proposed "shell" building on Plymouth's northwest side continues to leap hurdles.

WALKERTON â€” Bremenâ€™s boys track and field team had already beaten both Jimtown and New Prairie in dual meets earlier this season, but the Lions knew it would likely be a different story at Wednesdayâ€™s Northern State Conference championships. With start sprinter Sam Lacher sidelined with a hamstring injury and a total of eight teams in the field vying for the top spots in each event, Bremen fell short of both.
PLYMOUTH â€” Make it two in a row for Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims as they picked up a home Northern Lakes Conference win over Goshen by a 9-3 final Wednesday.
Plymouth starter Jacob Frantz was masterful in a seven inning five-hitter where he surrendered three runs, all in the first inning of the game. Frantz recovered admirably and allowed just two other base runners in the game, one erased in a seventh inning double play.
