MIKE LYNCH COLUMN
A Championship Gesture
The new Plymouth South High School opened its doors in late August and by Mid-March the boys hockey team made its contribution to the fresh trophy case by winning the Panthers first ever State Hockey Championship. It was a magical ride for Plymouth South. They were the number three seed in Division Two South and found themselves battling from behind as part of their championship run. "What I love about this team is that they don't panic...this team just doesn't panic," said Plymouth South Coach Mike McCosh.
