BOURBON â€” With six-peat champion Culver Academies hosting their tournament, the Lady Redskins have little hope of a sectional championship in their future.
Instead, Knoxâ€™s girls tennis team has set its sights on a Northern State Conference title.
So far, so good.
Two-time cancer survivor Paqui Kelly, the wife of Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly, will share her story and personal experience with students of Culver Academies at an all-school assembly at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday (April 13) at Eppley Auditorium.
â€śHer story is truly inspirational and we are ecstatic to have her speak with students about her experiences with cancer and to rev everyone up for the Relay For Life,â€ť said senior Kyle Blankenship (Crown Point, Ind.) who is co-chair of the Academies Relay For Life.
PLYMOUTH â€” A win is still a win, even when it isn't pretty, and this one definitely wasn't.
Plymouth blinked last as Triton snapped a 7-7 tie with three unearned runs during a disastrous five-error seventh inning, and the Trojans claimed a 10-7 win at a sloppy, cold and wet contest that featured a combined 16 errors with just four earned runs and 12 extra bases off a total of 10 wild pitches at Bill Nixon Field Friday.
Michael Doss, Culver Town Manager since early 2009, has announced his resignation at the end of this month, explaining he plans to return to his native West Virginia for "family reasons."
Doss is quick to emphasize he's neither leaving Culver for any negative reasons about the community or its people, nor leaving due to any problems in his familu.
"Everything is fine with my family," he says. "I'll leave with all the good memories of had of this community, but it's time for me to be with my family.
NASHVILLE â€” Time in the studio has stretched the creative talents of Plymouthâ€™s Denver Bierman and the Mile High Orchestra.
Appearing in Plymouth as part of the Marshall County United Way 50th anniversary celebration, Bierman and some members of the band have had a whirlwind couple of weeks, finishing tracks for a brand new childrenâ€™s album due out this summer and playing weekend dates Saturday night in Fort Wayne and Sunday morning in Marion, Ind.

PLYMOUTH â€” It was youth versus experience, and experience won decisively.
Plymouth's veteran girls tennis team gave up a total of just three games in a victory over visiting John Glenn's inexperienced squad for a 5-0 meet win as both teams unveiled their new lineups in their season-opener at Plymouth Thursday.
Plymouth's lineup includes just two underclassmen, while Glenn boasts just one junior and one senior, and that experience gap was reflected in Thursday's lopsided decision.
PLYMOUTH â€” With the flurry of new research coming out over the past two years on the link between concussions and chronic brain damage, Plymouth High School has decided to take action.
Led by Dr. Tony McPherron, the PHS medical staff implemented a new battery of tests this week to better evaluate the extent of a student athleteâ€™s injuries and determine a length of treatment. Called ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing), it is the first computerized concussion evaluation system.
PLYMOUTH â€” In their season-opener Tuesday, the Pilgrims overcame some shaky fielding with big bats.
On Wednesday, Plymouth players made just one error, but they couldnâ€™t string enough hits together at the plate to overcome the costly mistake in a 7-2 loss to South Bend St. Josephâ€™s at Bill Nixon Field.
