Culver Community sophomore Kayla Shaffer broke her schoolâ€™s 100-meter dash record with an 11.1-second finish during a dual Northern State Conference meet at Triton Thursday.
Triton senior Chandler Slone shot a 78 at Mystic Hills to win the individual championship and lead the Trojans to their fifth straight team championship at the Marshall County Golf Tournament Saturday.
CULVER â€”Â When Triton senior Chandler Slone double bogeyed 17, he could feel the championship slipping away. But he recovered with a 15-foot putt for birdie on the 18th green at Mystic, earning the right to go out on top.
Slone was low medalist with a 78, and the Trojans swept the top three spots to win for the fifth straight time with a dominant 320 at the annual Marshall County Golf Tournament at Mystic Hills Saturday.
Lions win Kouts invite
The Bremen boys track team brought home seven individual firsts and swept all three relays to score a record 184 total points and win the Kouts Invitational Saturday.
Josh Brenneman led the Lions with three individual wins in the long jump and the hurdles races, and he anchored his teamâ€™s winning 1600-meter relay. He broke his own Kouts Invitational records in both hurdles events, which he set last season, clocking a 14.68-second time in the 110 hurdles and a 40.3 in the 300 hurdles.
Six years after Culverâ€™s first-ever museum opened its doors, the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver is concerned those doors may close, which AHS leaders say would be a great loss not just to local history buffs, but to virtually all facets of the community and even beyond.
As many in the area are aware, the Center for Culver History, presently located in the lower level of the Culver-Union Twp. Public Library, will be forced to depart that space in approximately 18 months, following a decision by the libraryâ€™s board of directors in October, 2010.
Culver's EMS service is looking for a few community-minded individuals to fill much-needed gaps in the program's volunteer staff, a staff which has recently become markedly depleted.
The service can have up to 30 EMTs, says director Chuck Dilts, and 16 drivers. And while Culver's service has rarely quite attained those levels, right now numbers are low enough to prove challenging, at times, for those who are involved, not to mention expensive to taxpayers over the course of time, since hours must be covered, even if it means bringing in paid staff.

NAPPANEE â€” Plymouth and NorthWood entered Fridayâ€™s softball game in Nappanee both looking for their first win in conference play this season.
The Lady Pilgrims struck early and often to make sure they would be the ones leaving with that win, needing only five innings to down the Lady Panthers by an 11-0 count.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â The Plymouth bats found a way to win at the end and benefited from a good pitching performance by Jordan Scheetz once again in a 5-4 victory over the visiting NorthWood Panthers Friday night.
Scheetz rebounded from a shaky start to retire 16 straight Panthers in the victory, and the Pilgrims plated two runs in the bottom of the seventh to rally past their Northern Lakes Conference foes.
