DEFIANCE — Coming into this season, Wapakoneta varsity coach Jason Rostorfer knew if the Redskins were going to three-peat as Western Buckeye League champions it would take hard work, dedication and a little bit of that Redskin mojo.
Not only did the Redskins have a target coming into this season on their back as the defending champs but they had lost a core of quality seniors to graduation and were not as experienced as past Wapakoneta teams.
LIMA — Fifteen up, fifteen down.
The Wapakoneta Redskins got big days from Anthony Kennard and Zach Miller and rolled past the previously unbeaten Versailles Tigers on Saturday to wrap up a perfect 15-0 regular season and win the West Ohio High School Bowling Conference title.
Kennard, a senior, rolled individual games of 289 and 259. Miller, a junior, turned in scores of 267 and 257.
Together, they posted the top four individual rounds of the day among the 16 schools competing at 20th Century Lanes in Lima.
WAYNESFIELD — The Botkins Trojans broke a four-game losing streak with a 74-50 win over the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers in a non-league varsity boys basketball matchup Saturday night in Waynesfield.
The Trojans improved to 8-10 overall. The Tigers fell to 6-11.
Intense defensive pressure by the Trojans caused the Tigers to struggle during the first half of play.
W-G got into foul trouble early, with 15 in the first half, helping Botkins rack up easy points. Botkins lead 32-27 at halftime.
