It goes without saying that the Redskins wanted to win the WBL tournament.
But senior golfer Caleb Acheson said if they left the WBL tournament the victors, it would be ‘party time.’
There was no party.
The Redskins tied for second in the regular season, and took third in the WBL tournament, leaving them with a third place finish in the league.
Regular season champions, Van Wert, also took home first prize Thursday morning.
WAPAKONETA — “I wouldn’t call it a blow out,” said varsity head coach Marc Dyrness. “But they blew through us.”
Wapakoneta hosted Ottawa-Glandorf Thursday evening in a WBL matchup, and the better team went home the victor.
“They are bigger, faster and stronger,” Dyrness said after the Redskins fell to O-G, 5-0.
Following last week’s 24-21 loss to the Celina Bulldogs, Wapakoneta Redskins varsity football head coach Doug Frye and his squad are looking to bounce back this week in a home game against the Defiance Bulldogs.
Frye said the Defiance program is strong, and the team is led by long-time veteran Jerry Buti.
“Jerry (Buti) is an exceptional coach, his team plays with great spirit and great toughness,” Fyre said. “We expect to have our hands full Friday night.”

I hope that changes.
Life is full of journeys, and this story is about two journeys: my journey to the great city of Wapakoneta and my journey to running a triathlon.
