December 12, 2011

“It was really hard getting used to it,” Avery Hudt said. “It took a while getting used to it.”
However, she said she may have had a little bit of an advantage getting used to school. The daughter of Karen and Josh Hudt said her mother works as a first grade teacher at Wapakoneta Elementary School and her grandmother works in the office.

Redskin junior guard Nicole Brown hit back-to-back-to-back 3-pointers to give Wapakoneta a 50-49 lead at the 5:09 mark in the fourth quarter in a see-saw affair and then put the dagger in Kenton’s comeback hopes with a second trey at the 4:36 mark and a third with 3:56 left in the quarter putting the Redskins up 56-49.
