Lady Pilgrims open NLC with comeback win

April 19, 2011

ELKHART — Down 4-1 going into the seventh, the Plymouth softball team made a big inning happen when they needed one, scoring four times in the top of the inning to take the lead, then holding off Elkhart Memorial as Marissa Sullivan fanned Tayler Miller in an eight-pitch at bat with the tying run on third for a 5-4 Lady Pilgrims win to open the Northern Lakes Conference season.
Sullivan and Memorial’s Ali Iavagnilio were locked in a scoreless duel until the bottom of the fifth when Lauren Strausberger sent a three-run homer over the center field fence to put the Crimson Chargers on top.

Plymouth earns 1st win at Glenn

April 15, 2011

WALKERTON — For both teams, it was a game to grow on.
Plymouth claimed its first win after a rough start to the season, while John Glenn’s young squad got its first game under its belt as the Lady Pilgrims topped the Falcons 8-2 at Glenn Thursday.
“We generally don’t play very well over here so it was nice to come over here and get a win in Falconland,” said Plymouth head softball coach Ed Kelso. “The girls are staying in there. They’re giving us what they’ve got, and we’re ready for the rest of the season.”

Plymouth wins 2nd straight at Bremen

April 14, 2011

BREMEN — After a disappointing home loss to Triton last Friday, the Pilgrims were hoping for a strong showing this week.
They’re off to a good start.
Plymouth scored four runs in the top of the first and added on scores in all but two innings, while junior lefty Jordan Scheetz scattered five hits for two runs in five frames of work on the mound as the Pilgrims beat Bremen 12-4 on the road Wednesday.
It was Plymouth’s second road victory in two games after a win at Rochester Tuesday night.

Bremen edges Plymouth for 1st win

April 13, 2011

BREMEN — The Lady Lions needed a little help, but they got their first win.
Bremen broke a 1-1 tie in the bottom of the seventh inning as freshman pinch hitter Lexi Pate scored the winning run on a throwing error from third to top visiting Plymouth 2-1 Tuesday.
“That was a fun one,” said Bremen head coach Josh Walter. “We just battled back at the end and made the runs happen when we had to.

Knox trumps Trojans 5-0 in NSC opener

April 12, 2011

BOURBON — With six-peat champion Culver Academies hosting their tournament, the Lady Redskins have little hope of a sectional championship in their future.
Instead, Knox’s girls tennis team has set its sights on a Northern State Conference title.
So far, so good.

Triton rallies past Plymouth in error-filled game

April 9, 2011

PLYMOUTH — 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.

Veteran Plymouth blanks young Glenn, 5-0

April 8, 2011

PLYMOUTH — 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 implements new ImPACT concussion testing

April 8, 2011

PLYMOUTH — 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 athlete’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.

Pilgrims fall to Indians, 7-2

April 8, 2011

PLYMOUTH — In their season-opener Tuesday, the Pilgrims overcame some shaky fielding with big bats.
On Wednesday, Plymouth players made just one error, but they couldn’t string enough hits together at the plate to overcome the costly mistake in a 7-2 loss to South Bend St. Joseph’s at Bill Nixon Field.

Big 6th lifts Pilgrims past South Central

April 6, 2011

PLYMOUTH — It was opening day at Bill Nixon Field, and the growing pains were evident.
But the Pilgrims overcame a shaky start with 13 hits and a nine-run sixth inning to get the win over visiting Class A, No. 18 South Central, 14-10 Tuesday.
“We didn’t take advantage early in the game; we left some opportunities, but obviously that sixth inning was huge for us,” said Plymouth head baseball coach Tony Plothow. “Everybody came through with some big hits.”
