Call it lucky No. 13.
The Wapakoneta Redskins varsity boys bowling team rolled to its 13th victory of the season in as many tries by defeating a good St. Henry Redskins squad 2,951-2,810 on Saturday at McBoâ€™s Lanes in Versailles.
The win kept alive the possibility of a battle of unbeatens in the final contest of the regular season Saturday, Feb. 11 at 20th Century Lanes in Lima.
Wapak and the Versailles Tigers are both 13-0 in West Ohio High School Bowling Conference play with just one match standing in the way of the pairing.
The excitement could be heard in Wapakoneta Redskins swimming coach Mark Lawâ€™s voice as he talked about his boys and girls swim teams taking fifth-place finishes at the Western Buckeye League swim championships.
â€śWe had an outstanding day,â€ť Law told the Wapakoneta Daily News on Saturday. â€śOur top boys had an outstanding day. For our girls, last year we were ninth and we moved up to fifth this year and we have some really good swimmers coming up. I am really happy with the outcome.â€ť
