VOLLEYBALL: Wapak earns trip to districts

October 24, 2011

LIMA — Armed with a new defensive scheme and a new line-up since the last time the two teams played, the Wapakoneta Redskins erased the memories of a past loss to St. Marys on Saturday night.
The Redskins won a sectional title with a three-game sweep of Auglaize County rival St. Marys  at Lima Senior High School.
The 26-24, 25-19, 25-22 Division II sectional final win means Wapakoneta advances to the district tournament for the first time since 1997.
Avenging a regular season loss to the Roughriders didn’t feel too bad to Wapak coach Keith Rambin and his Redskins, either.
