PLYMOUTH â€” The woes of the big inning continued to haunt Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims Monday night as they dropped an NLC battle with Northridge by a 9-5 final.
The Pilgrims battled back after a two-run Northridge first to take a 4-2 lead on a three-run Bailey Clark homer in the Plymouth half of the inning. Plymouth added another in the third on a Clark sac fly to make it 5-3.
Then the bottom fell out.
PLYMOUTH â€” A Plymouth volleyball alum will be reunited with her former coach at Ancilla next season.
Amber Redinger, a four-year varsity player in both volleyball and basketball, recently inked on to play volleyball with the Lady Chargers beginning next season, where sheâ€™ll have a chance to play for former PHS head volleyball coach and current Ancilla assistant coach Walt Pickerell once more.
KNOX â€”Â John Glenn traveled to Knox Monday night and dismantled the Redskins in five innings by a 10-0 score.
Glennâ€™s Justin Gierlowski threw his second no-hitter of the season and recorded his third double-digit strikeout game with 10 ks. With his offspeed pitches setting up his fastball, Gierlowski controlled the game. But it was a one-out walk to Knoxâ€™s Scott Trojan in the fifth that ruined his perfect game.

Eric Knepper went 3-for-4 at the plate with a triple and scored both of Bremenâ€™s runs, while Bryce Cassel finished with two hits as the Lions slipped to 9-4 on the year.

PLYMOUTH - The PTO at Jefferson Elementary in Plymouth has hit on a good way to tackle two problems with one solution.
Raising money for school programs is always important and PTO's have used many different methods over the years to help their particular school. More and more people are becoming aware of childhood obesity in

At Jefferson they tackled both this week as the PTO sponsored their Jog For Jefferson program.
