Lincoln stays unbeaten at LaVille super duals
The Lincoln Junior High wrestling team went 5-0 at the Laville “King of the Mat” super duals Saturday. The young Rockies stayed perfect on the season at 18-0 with the win.
Lincoln defeated opponents by wide margins all day long, beating North Judson 117-12, Schmucker 76-30, Tippecanoe Valley 120-9 and LaVille 76-40. Lincoln’s boys accomplished their goal of beating traditional power and Penn high school feeder Schmucker, but unfortunately Discovery — another Penn feeder — scored more team points in Pool play than Lincoln.
Lincoln had to settle for the consolation finals against Lakeview, and the Rockies took out their frustrations by trouncing the Tigers 96-25 to take third place.
Undefeated Wrestlers for Lincoln for the day were Tyler Petske, Zane Devault, Gavin Banks, Cody Allmon, Terrance Hooten, Jesus Rubella, Tristen Mcmillen, Colton Schuler, Matt Friar, Damien White and heavyweight Kylan Thomas.

Halftime tweak helps Lady Chargers
The Ancilla College Lady Chargers went into the locker room at halftime on Saturday with a two-point lead over Kellogg Community College in Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) Western Conference play. Head coach Stephanie Beason told her squad they needed to make some changes if they were going to come away with a win, and the Lady Chargers delivered and beat the Lady Bruins 64-53
The win gave the Lady Chargers (2-22, 2-13 MCCAA West) their second win of the season.
Some of the changes made were to stop shooting so many 3s and take the higher percentage shot. The Lady Chargers cut their 3-point shooting in half the second half and finished at 54 percent from inside the arc. Ancilla also converted at 86 percent from the free throw line, going 19 of 22 from the stripe after the break.
The Lady Chargers were led by Brittany Cook with 27 points and 10 rebounds followed by North Judson grad Rebecca Bunkowfst with 22 points.
Ancilla will play its final game of the regular season on Wednesday when it travels to Glen Oaks Community College. Tip-off is set for 5:30 p.m.
