Culver residents Karen Easterday and Sue Roth wanted breast cancer to get some attention during the month -- October -- dedicated to its awareness, and it seems fair to say they succeeded handily. It's hard to miss two women decked out in bright pink, adorned with pink feather boas, and wearing t-shirts with the text, "Yes they're fake -- my real ones tried to kill me!" as they walk through the business districts of Culver.
That visibility, of course, was the whole point, say Easterday and Roth, both of whom have battled the disease and won.
"It started as a joke," says Roth.
BREMEN â€”Â The Bremen High football team was in good hands with Ben Hueni Friday night.
Hueni had seven catches for 109 yards and one score, helping No. 5 Bremen cruise to a 28-6 win over Lewis Cass in the Class 2A Sectional 26 championship game at a chilly Don Bunge Field.
Three touchdowns on their first three possessions helped the Lions (12-0) seize command and earn their second consecutive sectional championship. Next up for Bremen is the regional final at No. 6 Wheeler (12-0), a 48-6 winner over North Newton Nov. 11.
CULVER â€” Championships are often awarded to the team that makes the fewest mistakes.
A bad punt snap turned into a big-play South Newton touchdown to give the visitors some breathing room in the third quarter, and Culver Community gave up three turnovers, including a game-sealing interception inside the South Newton 5-yard line with 14.5 seconds on the game clock in a down-to-the-wire 27-21 Sectional 33 championship loss to the No. 8 Rebels at home at Cavalier Field Friday.
Culver Academies hosted the return of a royal alum, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Alexander II of Yugoslavia, who attended the school during
BREMEN â€” The first outright Northern State Conference championship since 1995, the first undefeated regular season since 1990. What more could Bremen want?
Well for starters, theyâ€™ll take a repeat sectional title.
The unbeaten, undisputed NSC champion No. 4-ranked Lions (11-0) take on Lewis Cass (5-6) for the Class 2A, Sectional 26 crown at home at Don Bunge Field Friday at 7:30 p.m.
CULVER â€” Sure, last weekâ€™s reprisal win over West Central was a big one, but the Cavaliers didnâ€™t spend long relishing it.
Not with this weekâ€™s sectional championship match-up against No. 8 South Newton looming.
Itâ€™s back to business as Culver Community (7-4) hosts the Rebels (10-1) for the Class A Sectional 33 crown Friday at 7 p.m.
MUNCIE â€” Plymouth High School alum Randy Davis and Jarrod Jones of Michigan City were named to the West Division preseason All-Mid American Conference team as the Ball State menâ€™s basketball team was picked to finish second in the MAC West Division preseason poll Wednesday morning.
NORTH MANCHESTER â€” Plymouth High School graduate and former PHS No. 1 singles player Kara Gilley was named to the 2011 All-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference team.
A 2010 PHS grad, Gilley played for the Manchester College Lady Spartans as a No. 1 doubles player and finished with a 7-2 record in the HCAC as a No. 2 singles player.
Also making the all-conference squad for Manchester are NorthWood alumna Alli Heeter and April Erxleben of Bellmont.
