Fifteen minutes after the conclusion of the Wapakoneta Redskinsâ 56-42 loss to the Marion Local Flyers on Tuesday night, Redskins varsity girls basketball coach Rusty Allen still hadnât emerged from the home lockerroom.
Once he did, Allen knew what the first question was going to be.
âIt was the call,â Allen said.
âThe callâ was what Allen would later describe as a âphantom chargeâ against senior guard Tasha Helmstetter.
BOTKINS â The Anna Rockets girls basketball team remained undefeated by easily taking care of Botkins in a 58-35 win Tuesday.
Anna jumped out to a big lead early, capturing an 18-7 lead in the first period and never looked back.
âThey are a very good team,â Botkins varsity coach Don Mack said. âThey get up and down the court in a hurry. We were able to force them into some outside shots but it wasnât enough.â
Annaâs quickness got them plenty of second shots, as they pulled down 13 offensive rebounds in the contest.
