Local referee to join hall of fame

July 26, 2012

Local fans probably have seen this Wapakoneta man on the basketball court a hundred times. But most have probably never noticed him. He’s the proverbial unsung hero of high school sports.

His tools? A whistle and a striped shirt.

He is the referee.

Wapak ACME Statebound

July 17, 2012

COLDWATER — For 15 years as head coach of the Wapakoneta ACME team, Willie Sammetinger had never seen his team make the state tournament.

Willie Sammetinger is a patient man.

The long wait came to an end Monday, as the Redskins blasted by Coldwater in their own back yard with an 8-0 win in the district final.

“We were close last year,” Sammetinger said after the game. “We came within one run. This year they kicked the door down and ran right through it.”
