PLYMOUTH â As usual it was a playoff atmosphere at Bill Nixon Field for a match-up between Plymouth and John Glenn Friday.
The Pilgrims hope that it wasnât a preview of next weekâs sectional opener as they fell to the rival Falcons, 9-2.
The Pilgrims kept pace answering a pair of unearned third inning Glenn runs with a sac fly from George Stults and an RBI single from Elijah Nixon in the fourth. The floodgates came open in the Glenn fifth with a two-run double from Justin Giorlowski and a mammoth two-run homer from David Jawerski, and that would be enough for the Falcons.
CULVER â The Culver Military Eagles scored nine runs in the second inning to put themselves ahead by seven and never looked back Friday, winning 13-3 in five innings at Wilkins Field over the North Judson Bluejays.
The Bluejays got off to a good start, scoring the first two runs of the game on a couple of errors by CMA in the top of the first. They also held the Eagles scoreless in the inning and took a 2-0 lead into the second. Judsonâs Michael Berby got on base with a hit to lead off the second but was promptly picked off at first by CMA pitcher Colin Raver.
ARGOS âÂ Argos striker Jami Patterson will play for an Indiana Soccer Hall of Famer at Trine University next year.
Patterson, a four-year standout with the Lady Dragons, has committed to play for the NCAA Division III Thunder under head coach Terry Stefankiewicz, a 2004 Indiana Soccer Hall of Fame inductee who coached previously at St. Francis and IPFW. He played at Indiana University for coach Jerry Yeagley.
PLYMOUTH â Winning four races at any track meet is pretty special, let alone four sectional races. Michael Hartman won six Thursday.
BREMEN â A loss isnât necessarily always a bad thing. Take Marissa Rossâ and Holly Stogsdillâs loss to Glennâs Kyler Columbia and Allison Pudlo at last Saturdayâs Northern State Conference meet.
The Triton duo seemed to have learned a few lessons in that defeat to their Glenn 1 doubles counterparts, and on Thursday they found the opportunity to apply them.
MISHAWAKA âÂ Kevin Heckaman wanted to catch the runner from Penn. Thatâs what he really wanted.
But since that wasnât likely to happen, Heckaman settled for the next best thing.
The Bremen sophomore, running anchor on the Lion 4 x 400 relay squad, motored around a runner from Mishawaka, then held off repeated challenges down the homestretch to finish second during Thursdayâs IHSAA boys track sectional at Penn.
The No. 9-ranked Kingsmen, wrapping up a convincing sectional championship, won the relay in 3:21.57, just missing the meet record.
CGA wins 9th straight sectional
The host Lady Eagles swept Rochester 5-0 to win their ninth straight tennis title at the Culver Girls Academy Sectional Thursday.
CGA surrendered just eight games on all five courts in the win. Natalia Lopez-Yanez beat Maddie Lewis 6-0, 6-1 at 1 singles, Rachel Simon was a 6-1, 6-0 winner over Shelby Bankson at 2 singles, and Alena Arkhipov beat Brooke Ewing 6-0, 6-2 at 3 singles.

BREMEN â Sandwiched between the NSC Tournament championships Monday and a potential meeting with perennial sectional champion Plymouth tonight, Bremenâs first round sectional match-up with LaVille would have been an easy one for the Lady Lions to overlook.
After all, the Bremen Sectional hosts hadnât lost to the Lancers in recent memory; theyâd swept them just three weeks ago in round robin NSC play en route to the conference championship. But looking too far ahead is nearly always a mistake, especially against a team that has been making steady progress throughout the year.
