VOLLEYBALL: 'Skins stave off 'Cats

September 9, 2011

The Wapakoneta Redskins varsity volleyball team held off a determined Bath Wildcats squad to post a 3-1 win in its home opener Thursday at Wapakoneta High School.
After cruising to wins in the first and second games, Wapak saw the third game slip away and had to scrap to come up with the match winner in the fourth game.

“I knew Bath wasn’t going to come in here and roll over,” Wapak coach Keith Rambin said.
Bath opened the first game with an 11-5 lead and survived a Redskins rally to lead 22-19 late in the game.

Rain pelts the soaked ground, making the most stable of ground
