Monday’s make-up game between the Wapakoneta Redskins and the Elida Bulldogs was a victory on the scoreboard for the Redskins as well as a victory in varsity coach Bill Sammons’ book.
“I really think that we actually won this game,” Sammons said after the 11-1, six-inning game. “We took a step today, even though the first inning was a little frustrating. We really took a step in the right direction in this game.”
No bomb was found and a suspect located as Cridersville Elementary School students returned to the building shortly before 10 a.m. Monday.
“We have a student who did it, we know who did it and are now going through the disciplinary process,” Wapakoneta City Schools Superintendent Keith Horner said.
A fourth-grade student at the school wrote the bomb threat on a note that staff members were alerted to by a student at 7:45 a.m., Horner said. The building was immediately evacuated and students arriving were rerouted.
