BASEBALL: Miscues bite Redskins

April 28, 2012

 

Sometimes it’s not the team that makes the most plays that comes out on top.  Sometimes it’s the one that makes the fewest mistakes.

Friday night, that team was the St. Marys Roughriders.

St. Marys took advantage of a slew of miscues in the first three innings to post a 5-1 win over the rival Wapakoneta Redskins in a Western Buckeye League varsity baseball game at Wapakoneta High School.

ST. MARYS — Courtney Knippen and the Wapakoneta softball team pounced on St. Marys pitching from the start to take any drama out of the game against its Auglaize County rivals.

The Redskins sent 15 batters to the plate and scored 10 runs in the top of the first inning en route to a 15-1 run-rule victory in five innings at K.C. Geiger Park on Friday.

Knippen started and finished the scoring outburst with a pair of extra-base hits.

Collecting coins: Penny drive to help school rebuild

April 27, 2012

Tightly grasping handfuls of pennies, kindergartners dropped them into large collection buckets this week at Wapakoneta Elementary School.

As they gave all the pennies they had they said they were donating them to help fix the “broken school.”

They brought with them from home not just their pennies, but nickels, dimes, quarters and even dollar bills — anything they could find — to help students just like them who had lost part of their school to a tornado earlier this year.
