FULTON â€” Both teams struggled with the field width and the weather at the outset, but Argos adjusted a little quicker.
The Dragons scored a pair of goals in the 18th and 25th minutes and made them stand up despite some late pressure by Oak Hill for a 2-1 semifinal victory at the Class A Caston Boys Soccer Regional Thursday.
Fresh from its first sectional championship in a decade at the Culver Community Sectional Saturday, Argos moves on to face the winner of the late semifinal contest between Peru and West Lafayette in the regional championship Saturday at 7 p.m.
Sectional times and dates have been determined by the host schools for the 40th Annual IHSAA State Volleyball Tournament.
The sectional stage of the tournament begins next Tuesday, Oct. 18 and continues through Saturday, Oct. 22.

A Dulcimer Decade
On a bright crisp fall day in 2000, Marcy Prochaska was driving across Virginia to pick up a bright and lovely new thing: a hammered dulcimer of her own. In celebration of that anniversary, she will present a concert at 4 p.m., Sunday October 16, in the Legion Memorial Building on the campus of Culver Academies.
KNOX â€” A community is in mourning following the tragic loss of a Knox High School student. Andrew â€śDrewâ€ť Shearin was a 17-year-old junior whose life touched an unbelievable number of hearts before he was prematurely torn away from his family and friends, spurring an astounding amount of sorrow in the community.
Shearin's death is the result of a single-car accident which occurred on S.R. 8 in Starke County Monday night. While the accident is still under investigation, police said alcohol and drugs are not believed to be a factor.
PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s highly unlikely that Chad Van Herk has ever suffered from boredom.
The PHS grad and Marshall County native and singer/songwriter has just released his second album of songs â€śDaydreaming Days Awayâ€ť but his musical pursuits are just part of an amazingly eventful young life. Born in the British Virgin Islands, Van Herk has probably spent more of his life on the sea than dry land.
PLYMOUTH â€” Most kids canâ€™t wait to get out of school when the final bell rings. Not so for 60 Lincoln Junior High students â€” at least not on Tuesdays.
Tuesday afternoons between 3 and 5 p.m. are devoted to Five Star, an after-school program that uses volunteer â€ścoaches,â€ť games and discussion times to encourage students to live a â€śFive Star life.â€ť
â€śSo many kids feel like they are losing, and we want them to win,â€ť said LJH head coach Casey Martin.
The Northern State Conference is on the line as Class 2A No. 5 Bremen hosts Class 3A No. 9 John Glenn, while Plymouthâ€™s players have something to prove as they travel to NorthWood, and Triton looks to keep its positive momentum rolling as it hosts Class 3A 10th-ranked Jimtown in the last week of the regular season.
CULVER â€” Leopoldo Burguete came on strong at the finish to win the individual boys championship and lead Culver Military to its fourth straight team sectional championship, while Culver Girls Academy placed six runners in the top 15 to breeze to its eighth straight title at the Culver Academies Cross Country Sectionals Tuesday.
GREEN BAY, Wisc. â€”Â Culver Community graduate and longtime Whitewater High School wrestling coach Wendall Bean will be among five individuals inducted into the Wisconsin Wrestling Coaches Association George Martin Hall of Fame at the hallâ€™s annual induction ceremony November 4.
