The Tigers began their season with a tournament at Hawthorne Hills Golf Course in Lima.

W-G arrived in Allen County early Wednesday morning, escaping fog that blanketed their departure from Waynesfield in Auglaize County.

And the winner is ...

July 18, 2014

The greatest athletes of Wapakoneta gathered near the Auglaize River last night to race in one of the most grueling, challenging and surprising competitions any of them could imagine.

OK, maybe they weren’t the best athletes in the area, and maybe the race wasn’t the most grueling, but a group of about 85 people did come together and have some fun for a good cause with a large crowd cheering them on.

The bed races are one of the events that help to kick off the annual Summer Moon Festival, and this year’s wet, wild adventure did not disappoint.

Hayzlett, a Wapakoneta resident, was hired in May to be the varsity boys basketball head coach for Waynesfield-Goshen High School.
