FOOTBALL: Late stop secures Wapak win

September 10, 2011

BATH TOWNSHIP — Forty times Bath’s Aaron Smith carried the ball.
And 40 times he blasted his way through the Wapakoneta defense like a bowling ball with legs through a host of pins.
But not the last time.
The Redskins stuffed Smith behind the line on a two-point conversion attempt in the waning moments of the fourth quarter to preserve a 14-13 win over the Wildcats in a Western Buckeye League football game Friday night at Bath Stadium.
As Smith took the handoff on the play, he was greeted by a wall of white jerseys led by senior nose guard Jim Knippen.

VOLLEYBALL: 'Skins stave off 'Cats

September 9, 2011

The Wapakoneta Redskins varsity volleyball team held off a determined Bath Wildcats squad to post a 3-1 win in its home opener Thursday at Wapakoneta High School.
After cruising to wins in the first and second games, Wapak saw the third game slip away and had to scrap to come up with the match winner in the fourth game.
The Redskins had to battle from behind in almost every game.
“I knew Bath wasn’t going to come in here and roll over,” Wapak coach Keith Rambin said.
Bath opened the first game with an 11-5 lead and survived a Redskins rally to lead 22-19 late in the game.
