The Kenton Wildcats tortured the Wapakoneta Redskins’ secondary Friday in a 52-16 rout in the Western Buckeye League season opener for both teams in varsity football action at Harmon Field.
The Wildcats’ passing attack accounted for 448 yards with six touchdowns by senior quarterback Grant Sherman, who threw for 425 yards passing and all six TDs.

WAYNESFIELD — It was simply total domination.
The Fort Recovery Indians ran around, through and over the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers in a 54-0 win in a non-league varsity football game Friday.

The undefeated Wapakoneta Redskins won their third consecutive Western Buckeye League match in as many days with a 5-0 victory Thursday over the Defiance Bulldogs in a varsity girls tennis match at the Wapakoneta Rotary Courts.
The win pushed Wapak to 9-0 overall and 6-0 in the WBL with three league matches remaining this season.

What ailed the Wapakoneta Redskins in the fourth game Thursday stuck with them in the lopsided fifth game as they allowed a 2-1 match lead to turn into a 3-2 defeat to the Elida Bulldogs in Western Buckeye League varsity volleyball action in Elida.
Thursday’s scores were 25-22, 18-25, 13-25, 25-19 and 15-2.
“The loss in the fourth game set the tone for the fifth set,” Wapak varsity coach Amy Ruppert said. “Elida has a couple nice servers and we got hung up in serve-receive making error after error after error.
