Triton trumps Bremen, stays perfect in NSC

February 11, 2011

Culver holds off visiting Dragons in bell game, 48-41

February 11, 2011

CULVER — Culver Community’s boys basketball team reclaimed the traveling bell from Argos Thursday.
Given the way the Cavs floundered down the stretch, though, the bell probably sounded a little less melodious.
Culver watched a 16-point fourth-quarter lead melt to four points in the final minute before hanging on for a 48-41 win over visiting Argos at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.

CGA unseats Plymouth, 49-48

February 9, 2011

ROCHESTER — It was an outcome determined by inches, individual plays, by fractions of seconds.
One moment Meagan Barron’s go-ahead free throw with 1.7 seconds on the clock set the Plymouth crowd on its feet, and the next Brenna Newell’s buzzer-beating jumper off the elbow left the Lady Pilgrims stunned as the Culver Girls Academy crowd rushed the floor in a 49-48 Class 3A Rochester Sectional opener with a championship feel Tuesday.
The Eagles play New Prairie in a semifinal Friday at 6 p.m. EST.
