Cox leaves distinguished legacy at PHS

February 24, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Dave Cox never planned to be a head coach. Things just sort of fell into place that way.
Twenty years and more than 300 wins later, Cox announced his retirement as the head coach of the Plymouth High School girls basketball team Wednesday.
“I’ve thought about it, but to really solidify that, all along I knew I would get out of the season because the rigors of the season can give you different emotions. Once you got done and you’d kind of gradually gotten to that point, I kind of decided the last few days that it was time for somebody else to do it,” said Cox.

A dream no longer deferred

February 21, 2012

BREMEN — The best things are worth waiting for.
With 1:08 left in regulation, Abraham Hall scored a takedown against Elkhart Central’s Dominique Stauffer, then held on for a 3-1 decision and the state championship in the heavyweight title match of the 74th annual IHSAA individual state wrestling finals at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse Saturday.
And while Hall’s state championship dreams may have finally culminated when he stepped atop the heavyweight podium Saturday, the origins of the Bremen senior’s title run can really be seen in the 2010-11 season.
