BASKETBALL: Hoops season opens tonight

November 25, 2011

Area high school basketball starts up tonight when the Wapakoneta Redskins varsity girls team travels to Waynesfield to take on the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers.

Wapak is coming off a disappointing 2010-2011 season marred by numerous injuries. Seniors Tasha Helmstetter, Mallory McDevitt and Morgan Quellhorst all missed time due to injuries last year but are back for the 2011-2012 campaign.

Unfortunately for the Redskins, senior Ashley Knippen is out for the season after suffering a knee injury in the powder-puff football game a few weeks ago.

FOOTBALL: Redskins built on success in 2011

November 19, 2011

Mrs. Stoffer — the unsung hero of the Wapakoneta Redskins 2011 football team.

Years ago she told a young, impressionable Doug Frye, “Good, better, best. Never let it rest until your good is better and your better is best.”

Frye never forgot the words of his sixth-grade English teacher and passed them on to his young charges.

“I think our kids have to understand that what we did this year was a step in the right direction,” the Redskins varsity coach said. “But it wasn’t the ultimate accomplishment.”

A step in the right direction indeed.

Two years ago, the Redskins went 1-9.
