Lake Central football coach Brett St. Germain announced Thursday that several of his players who won the school's first sectional championship since 1999 will play in college.

Brian Rice and Mitch Oskam will continue their careers at Wabash College. Jake Turngren will play at Anderson University. Jesse Ruiz will play at the University of Indianapolis. And Johnny Gbur will play at DePauw. -- Steve Hanlon

Marquette hosts all-star game: Marquette will host the Global Challenge All-Star Game at 7 p.m. Saturday.

The Indiana roster includes Marquette's Richie Mitchell and Nate Flores, LaPorte's Josh Fleming and Gage Ott, Chesterton's Cole Teal, Michigan City's Keenan Simmons, Munster's Pat McCarthy, Bowman Academy's Justin King and Lowell's Zack VanHook. LaLumiere's Sadig Inuwa is on the international roster, which also features Vlatko Granic and Filip Nowicki of Midwest Elite. -- Jim Peters

In search of ....: The June 14 Indiana-Kentucky All-Star game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse will recognize all-stars from the '4' years (1944, 1954, etc).  Reunion coordinator Terry Downham has been unable to make any contact with the following area players: Angela Hamblin, Lew Wallace, 1994; Julie DeMuth, Merrillville, 2004; Vince Boryla, E.C. Washington, 1944; Delray Brooks, Michigan City Rogers, 1984; Bogdan (Bo) Cucuz, Lake Central, 1984; and Gary Patterson, Bishop Noll, 2004. Anyone who can help is asked to email Downham at indianabasketballallstars@gmail.com.

New digs: The LaPorte track teams are running on their new nine-lane all-weather track at Kesling Middle School, located about a mile from the high school. "It's the real deal," boys coach Bob James said. "We're pretty proud of it. The complex is complete with bleachers, a press box, concession stand and most importantly to the athletes, locker rooms. "We wanted it to be our track and cross country facility," James said. "That was our goal."

Westville will have no home meets this spring while a new track is installed at the school. The current surface is made of cinders and the lines had to be painted on, according to coach Alex Tomsheck. "It's going to be really nice," he said. "Hopefully, it will bring some new kids out." -- Jim Peters
