BASKETBALL: Trojans win thriller

January 20, 2012

BOTKINS — Back-and-forth the pendulum swung.

And when the horn sounded, it was on Botkins’ side.

In a game of momentum swings, the Trojans ultimately came out on top, defeating the Russia Raiders 52-45 in overtime in a Shelby County League varsity girls basketball game Thursday at Botkins High School.

The Trojans scored all nine of the points in the overtime from the free throw line. They connected on 9 of 12 attempts in the period.

Russia managed just one field goal in the overtime — a Shana Meyer layup with 19 seconds left. By then it was too late.

January 18, 2012

JACKSON CENTER — Like sister, like sister.

Junior guard Kaylee Patton broke the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers girls basketball career scoring mark — previously held by sister Lisa (Patton) Bruggeman — on her way to 27 points for the game as the Tigers pulled out a 67-61 win Tuesday at Jackson Center.

BASKETBALL: Rangers rally past Redskins

January 18, 2012

WAPAKONETA — Just when Travis Bertram was getting warmed up, it was time to cool down.

After scoring just two points in the first half, the Redskins’ leading scorer rallied Wapak with nine quick points to open the third quarter.

But when Bertram headed to the bench with his fourth foul midway through the period, the Redskins’ momentum — and one-point lead — vanished.

In his absence, the New Knoxville Rangers went on a 14-0 run and pulled away for a 55-38 rout in a non-league varsity boys basketball game Tuesday at Wapakoneta High School.

ALLIANCE — The Wapakoneta Redskins varsity wrestling team bounced back from a tough weekend two weeks ago at the Brecksville tournament with a solid showing Friday and Saturday in the Top Gun Tournament in Alliance.

Three Redskins wrestlers placed in the elite event, which is widely considered to be a preview of the Ohio High School Athletic Association state tournament in March.

John Martin led the way for Wapak with a second-place finish at 106 pounds.

Holden Hengstler and Alec Brown both recorded fifth-place finishes at 170 and 182 pounds, respectively.

BASKETBALL: 'Skins stomp Lakers

January 17, 2012

The intensity at both ends of the floor by the Wapakoneta Redskins led to a flood of points early, drowning the Indian Lake Lakers Monday in varsity girls non-league basketball action.

Pressure defense and a quicker trigger on the offensive end powered the Redskins to a 74-43 win as Wapak forced nine first half turnovers and junior guard Nicole Brown hit for a game high 20 points including tying a record six 3-pointers.

BOWLING: Wapak continues to roll

January 17, 2012

The boys are still undefeated.

The girls are still sitting on just one loss.

The Wapakoneta Redskins are — pardon the pun — bowling over the competition.

Wapak’s boys team improved to 11-0 with a pair of wins in West Ohio High School Bowling conference varsity action Saturday at Varsity Lanes in St. Marys.

The Redskins remain in first place in the conference, just ahead of the also-unbeaten Versailles Tigers. Wapak and Versailles will square off in the regular-season finale Saturday, Feb. 11 at 20th Century Lanes in Lima.
