How do you describe a second-place finish at one of the toughest tournaments in the state? A tournament in which you finish ahead of two former state runners-up?
Well, if youâre Wapakoneta Redskins junior John âJ.T.â Martin, the answer is, âNot good enough.â
That was exactly how the Redskins 106-pounder felt after his result at last weekâs Top Gun Tournament at Alliance High School.
âItâs a tough tournament,â Martin said between matches at the Wapakoneta Invitational on Saturday. âIt feels good to be successful there. But I got second, so I know Iâve got to work.
SPENCERVILLE â Spencervilleâs Jennifer Post layup with just under 10 seconds left on the clock propelled the Bearcats past Waynesfield-Goshen, 55-53, in a non-league confrontation Saturday.
The loss dropped the Tigers to 5-7 on the season. Spencerville improved to 6-7 for the year.
The Tigers did get a last second attempt by Kaylee Patton at the buzzer. But her driving shot towards the basket fell short to overshadow what was a huge game for the sharp-shooting junior who pumped in a game-high 41 points and kept her team in the game with several clutch baskets.
