PLYMOUTH â€” It took Plymouth leading returning scorer Amber Redinger about three quarters to get going.
When she started to find a groove, it helped push the Lady Pilgrims over the top.

WALKERTON â€” Argosâ€™ girls basketball team needed something, anything, to get on track offensively in the fourth quarter Thursday at John Glenn.
Karlee VanDerWeele delivered.
The Argos junior forward drained a crucial 3-pointer with 5:21 left in the game to accelerate a game-changing 11-0 run as the Dragons withstood a 22-point outburst from Glenn freshman Kyler Columbia, and clawed out a 41-39 come-from-behind season-opening win at The Aerie.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” A lawsuit has been filed against USA Swimming, Indiana Swimming and the Metropolitan School District of Lawrence Township (Marion County, Indiana Superior Court) for their failure to take action on complaints made about their certified swim coach, Christopher Wheat, and for sexual abuse and assault against a then 14-year old female swimmer that resulted from that inaction.
