McNeil signs with Coast Guard Academy

April 13, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth senior Ryan McNeil isn’t one to take the easy road.
The 6’4” shooting guard was fine-tuning his shot long before the Pilgrims started their 2011-12 campaign. During the season, the co-MVP helped set the pace for his teammates at practice and on the game floor, a pace which helped push Plymouth to a 16-6 finish.
McNeil signed on to play basketball at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy this week, and if the demands of a regular collegiate student-athlete aren’t enough, adding on the demands of attending a service academy makes for an especially challenging experience.

Lady Pilgrims clinch 3rd straight with 10-0 win over Tippy Valley

April 13, 2012

PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth softball team picked up its third straight win Friday, defeating Tippecanoe Valley 10-0 in a game shortened to six innings by the runs-ahead rule.
Britney Horvath picked up her first varsity win in the circle with a one-hit shutout, fanning eight while allowing just two walks and not allowing any Valley runners beyond first base.
Kailey Whitley gave Horvath the only run she needed in the bottom of the first when her sharp single to left was misplayed by the Valley left fielder, allowing the Lady Pilgrims’ leadoff hitter to circle the bases and put Plymouth up 1-0.

Sullivan pitches Plymouth past Glenn, 3-2

April 13, 2012

The Lady Pilgrim right hander allowed only one hit and two walks to go along with 16 strikeouts in a 3-2 win over the visiting John Glenn Falcons.

Wild pitching costly for Lions as Pilgrims rally past Bremen, 4-3

April 12, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Bremen head coach Bo Hundt knew coming into the season that his team’s fortunes were going to hinge on pitching.
