FOOTBALL: Redskins bow out

November 12, 2011

PIQUA — One-by-one, the Wapakoneta Redskins seniors stood before their younger teammates.

One-by-one, tears in their eyes, they told them, don’t forget this feeling.

And don’t let it happen again.

One of the greatest seasons in Wapakoneta football history came to a conclusion Friday night as the Trotwood-Madison Rams handed the Redskins a 27-6 defeat in a Division II regional semifinal at Piqua’s Alexander Field.

Wapak ends its season with a 10-2 record. The 2011 Redskins were just the third team in school history to win 10 games and the second to win a playoff game.

Auglaize County Engineer Doug Reinhart, with the approval of the Auglaize County commissioners, amended the contract with Dura Mark to add 20 miles of center and edge lining to county roads. The amendment included an additional $6,000 in costs, funded through 2011 Motor Vehicle Gas Tax funds.
