PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth held an impromptu invitational Monday.
With last weekâ€™s weather wreaking havoc on area schedules, Plymouthâ€™s boys swim team found itself having to make up a snowed-out three-way meet with Bremen and Culver Military on top of another three-way with Knox and Tippecanoe Valley. The result was sometimes confusing, but the Pilgrims got it done, topping both Knox and Tippecanoe Valley 99-48-36 and splitting with winner CMA and third-place Bremen in their three-way 97-61-28.
ROCHESTER â€” Plymouth will jump right into the fire as the Class 3A Rochester Sectional opens tonight at 7 p.m.
The three-peat defending champion Lady Pilgrims take on the arguable tournament favorites in Culver Girls Academy, and the Eagles are hoping for revenge after taking a 51-38 loss at the hands of Plymouth at last yearâ€™s tilt.
The Culver Lake Fest committee encourages residents to thinkâ€¦summer! Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 15 through 17, the 28th annual â€śCulver Lake Festâ€ť will â€śHonor Our Heroes.â€ť
Mike Overmyer, Lake Fest Committee President, said, â€śWe are very excited about this yearâ€™s theme, and we want to pay tribute to the heroes that live and have worked in our community and just say thanks for their service to our country.â€ť

ROCHESTER â€” Culver head wrestling coach Mike Buschman was hoping his heavyweight could find something to hang his hat on at regionals.
How about a championship?
Culver 285er Jeremiah Harvey surprised the field, handing undefeated Plymouthâ€™s tourney favorite and IndianaMat.com No. 2-ranked Damon Howe a quarterfinal upset, then following up with a dramatic double-overtime pinfall win over Pennâ€™s Kade Maggart in the championship at the Rochester Individual Wrestling Regional Saturday.
BREMEN â€” Bremen led 24-21 at the half, but Tanner Foust took over after the break as Fairfield claimed a 58-43 win over the Lions at Bremen Saturday.
Foust went 6 of 7 from the field in the second half for 16 of his game-high 24 points. His alley-oop layup at the 5:32 mark of the third frame put the Falcons up for good.
â€śHe was kind of in the rhythm, and he was finding little seams and things,â€ť said Fairfield head basketball coach John Wysong. â€śWe didnâ€™t tell him anything special (at halftime), just try to keep even-keel.â€ť
LAKEVILLE â€” Last year, LaVille knocked Triton off its undefeated and sole possession of the Northern State Conference lead perch.
This time around the Lancers spent the first 30 minutes acting like a pesky fly that just kept buzzing around the Trojansâ€™ heads, but a late push propelled Class A No. 2 Triton to a 69-59 NSC win at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Saturday.
With the win, the Trojans enjoy a one-game edge in the league loss column with two games to play.
An in-depth look at the Culver-Union Township Public Libraryâ€™s finances took center stage at the library boardâ€™s first meeting of 2011 last month.
The meeting began with the introduction of newest board member Joan Bess, recently appointed by Culverâ€™s Town Council.
Board Treasurer Alfred Nyby, from a handout he distributed to board members and projected onto a screen, presented a report focusing on trends in library spending and receipts past, present, and future.
PLYMOUTH â€” Two steps forward, one step back.
Coming off a breakthrough week in which they broke into the Northern Lakes Conference win column and put together their first consecutive wins, the Pilgrims suffered a setback Friday, falling to NLC foe Goshen 48-37 in a Homecoming spoiler at The Rock.
Plymouth got off to a slow start as the visiting Redskins held the home team to just three points in the first quarter and 13 total points at the half, snapping a five-game losing streak in the Pilgrimsâ€™ worst offensive showing since a Nov. 30 loss to Triton.
