On Friday, the Wapakoneta Redskins will face a winless Bath Wildcats team that is constant in some ways and dynamic in others.

“Through the years, they’re a very physical, well-coached team. That has never changed,” Wapak varsity coach Doug Frye said. “Coach (Bill) Garland has done a great job with getting these kids on track. They’ve got a lot of youngsters out there. They continue to get better each week. They’re hard-nosed kids is what jumps out at me.”

With just four schools hosting the sports, the WBL does not sanction girls golf as a varsity sport and therefore does not have a league championship.

Kohler shot an 89 to lead all players Wednesday at Eagle Rock Golf Club in Defiance, while she and the Redskins were second overall with a team score of 410.
