Pilgrims open season with split versus Mishawaka, LaPorte

April 4, 2012

PLYMOUTH — The first meet of the year is always a little dicey. Especially with a young team. Even more so coming off of spring break.
Nevertheless, Plymouth’s boys track team got off to a solid start Tuesday, splitting a three-way meet with a loss to a deep Mishawaka squad — which put up 69 points to top the field — and a narrow 32-30 victory over LaPorte at home at The Rockpile.

Area teams reloaded as 2012 baseball season begins

April 4, 2012

The past is past.
Following Culver Com-munity’s first sectional championship in 25 years last season, that’s the message head coach Mike Elliott and his staff are sending to the Cavaliers this year.
With just four starters back in pitcher and utility player Collin Stevens, second baseman/ pitcher Sam Hissong, short stop/ pitcher Kyle Vlach and center fielder Nick Pritz, Elliott is hoping his largely inexperienced team can find an identity of its own in 2012 rather than resting on the laurels of last season’s historic finish.

66 + 94 = $1,000: 'Mathletes' win Best Loser contest

April 4, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth High School math teachers Michael Delp and Earl Boyer recently solved an equation they can take great pride in.
The two collectively lost more than 150 pounds in just 10 weeks to win the “Best Loser” competition — and the grand prize of $1,000 — at Fitness Forum.
“It was pretty exciting,” said Boyer. “We didn’t pressure each other, but I think we both put pressure on ourselves to pull our own weight on the team. Each of us wanted to do a good job for the other. I wouldn’t have been able to do this well on my own.”
