BLUFFTON â Travis Bertram carved up the Bluffton Pirates defense like a Christmas ham Tuesday night, scoring 26 points to lead the Wapakoneta Redskins to a 52-35 win in a varsity boys basketball contest at Bluffton High School.
The junior forward scored 21 of the Redskinsâ first 38 points â including 11 of their 14 first-quarter points â as Wapak pulled away and was never seriously challenged by the 0-5 Pirates.
Bertram was coming off a 28-point performance in Saturdayâs 59-57 loss to the St. Henry Redskins.
The Wapakoneta varsity wrestling team recorded five pins in the final six matches to overcome a 15-point deficit and record a tough 42-33 victory over Indian Lake in a nonleague affair Tuesday night.
âIndian Lake is a good team and they have some good wrestlers so we are tickled to get a win out of it but we are not going to be satisfied because there is still a lot of work to be done,â said Redskin varsity coach Jason Rostorfer. âThose guys are going to be in our district in our realignment so we better be ready to see them again.â
