FOOTBALL: 'Skins face critical hurdle in Shawnee

October 20, 2011

As the Wapakoneta Redskins entered Week 9 of the high school football season a year ago, they had already exceeded expectations.
The memories of a 1-9 season in 2009 were gone and a playoff berth seemed in the bag.
Then came a 46-15 loss to Kenton in Week 9 and a 28-21 defeat at the hands of the Elida Bulldogs seven days later.
Suddenly it was time to pack up the equipment and start thinking about next year.
Now it’s next year.

PREP: Wapak's Faller named WBL's top player

October 20, 2011

Wapakoneta Redskins senior Andy Faller became the first boys soccer player from Wapakoneta to be named the Western Buckeye League Player of the Year when the All-WBL teams were announced on Wednesday.
Faller said he was “speechless” when varsity coach Marc Dyrness told him he had won the award.
“I kind of thought I was going to be in the running for it,” Faller said. “But I had my doubts with Bath winning the WBL. I thought one of their players was going to get it. ... I was really happy.”

VOLLEYBALL: Wapak holds off Bath to advance

October 20, 2011

LIMA — Talk about your interesting finishes.
The Wapakoneta Redskins reversed a bizarre momentum shift in the fifth game to pull out a 3-2 win over the Bath Wildcats in a Division II volleyball sectional semifinal Wednesday night at Lima Senior High School.
After pulling out to an 8-4 lead in the crucial fifth-game tiebreaker, Wapak was called for an illegal substitution.
The error had occurred two points earlier, so two points were taken from the Wapak score and Bath was awarded a penalty point and the serve.
Suddenly it was just a one-point 6-5 lead and the Wildcats were serving.

BOYS SOCCER: Elida bounces Wapak

October 20, 2011

SHAWNEE TOWNSHIP — The Wapakoneta Redskins varsity boys soccer season came to an abrupt end as the Elida Bulldogs pulled off a 3-0 upset win in a Division II sectional semifinal Wednesday night at a rain-soaked Shawnee Field.
In a match that more closely resembled water polo than soccer at times, players raced through and slipped in puddles as the ball skipped all over the field.
A steady rain began falling early in the afternoon and only seemed to intensify as the match wore on.

Road to riches: Conservative fiscal policy may help city cash in on grants

October 20, 2011

Buchy, Faber push Issue 2

October 20, 2011

State Sen. Keith Faber, R-Celina, and state Rep. Jim Buchy, R-Greenville, spoke in detail Wednesday on the need to approve Issue 2 during a public meeting sponsored by the Auglaize County Patriots at the Wapakoneta Eagles.
The issue, which was an attachment to the recently passed budget bill in Ohio, limits some of the negotiating powers for public workers such as policeman, fireman, and teachers. Both legislators immediately came out in support of the issue and dispelled what they called myths about the issue.
