The intensity at both ends of the floor by the Wapakoneta Redskins led to a flood of points early, drowning the Indian Lake Lakers Monday in varsity girls non-league basketball action.
Pressure defense and a quicker trigger on the offensive end powered the Redskins to a 74-43 win as Wapak forced nine first half turnovers and junior guard Nicole Brown hit for a game high 20 points including tying a record six 3-pointers.
The boys are still undefeated.
The girls are still sitting on just one loss.
The Wapakoneta Redskins are â€” pardon the pun â€” bowling over the competition.
Wapakâ€™s boys team improved to 11-0 with a pair of wins in West Ohio High School Bowling conference varsity action Saturday at Varsity Lanes in St. Marys.
The Redskins remain in first place in the conference, just ahead of the also-unbeaten Versailles Tigers. Wapak and Versailles will square off in the regular-season finale Saturday, Feb. 11 at 20th Century Lanes in Lima.
The Wapakoneta Redskins varsity boys swimming finished fourth, and the girls seventh, at the Wapak/Celina Invitational on Saturday.
Ottawa-Glandorf, Celina and Ada were the top three teams in the 20-team boys meet.
Shawnee, Lima Central Catholic and Celina made up the girls top three out of 14 teams.
The boys grabbed a win and a second-place finish in the freestyle relays.
Nate Hager, Ryan Kremer, Brandon Christler and Ryan Greve won the 400 freestyle relay with a time of 3:42.02. They teamed up again to take second in the 200 with a time of 1:37.38.
