The program is growing, said coordinator and librarian Debbie Beck, as adults realize that they need added reading and writing skills in order to get better jobs.
EUGENE, Ore. â Now, all Morgan Uceny has to do is win an Olympic Gold Medal.
Donât laugh. Itâs a distinct possibility.
The 2003 Plymouth High School grad dominated a loaded field and earned a trip to the London Olympics by winning the womenâs 1,500-meter run Sunday at the U.S. Olympic Trials.
Before a nationwide television audience, Uceny bided her time for three laps, then surged to victory with a determined homestretch sprint down the famed track at the University of Oregon.
PLYMOUTH âÂ Plymouth Post 27 bounced back after a tough loss on Thursday with two convincing wins in a doubleheader against Mishawaka Post 161 at Bill Nixon Field on Saturday.

PLYMOUTH 13, MISHAWAKA 0

EUGENE, Ore. â It worked once, so Morgan Uceny decided to do it again.
Leading pretty much from start to finish, Uceny won her semifinal heat of the womenâs 1,500-meter run at the U.S. Olympic Trials.
Her time Friday â 4 minutes, 8.9 seconds â was the fastest of all the qualifiers at the University of Oregonâs Hayward Field. She now heads to Sundayâs championship race, which will be broadcast live by NBC at 7:23 p.m.
âI felt really good yesterday, so I sort of went into today with the same mindset,â said Uceny. âDonât fix it if it isnât broke. â
