September 16, 2011

The position needs to be filled after Director Jo Derryberry announced her retirement from the position earlier this month. She is to be honored on Sept. 30.

Portman: Bill makes job harder

September 16, 2011

FOOTBALL: 'Skins have their eyes on Celina QB

September 15, 2011

Time to shift gears.
Again.
Last week it was Bath’s bruising back Aaron Smith.
Friday night it will be Celina Bulldogs quarterback Braden Billger and his arsenal of weapons.
The spread offense is coming back to Harmon Field when the 3-0 Wapakoneta Redskins host 0-3 Celina in a Week 4 Western Buckeye League matchup.
And the Redskins defense could have its hands full with Billger.
The junior quarterback has thrown for 820 yards on 70 of 124 (56.5 percent) with seven touchdowns and three interceptions already this season.
He has thrown scoring strikes to four different receivers.

Showing 'Skins spirit

September 15, 2011

For some, the mark of a Wapakoneta Redskin fan is easy to identify.

Golf carts, not cars to carry court

September 15, 2011

Convertibles used to transport the Wapakoneta High School court around the football field in the past are being replaced by golf carts.
“In the past, the homecoming court has paraded around the track in convertible cars to kick off the homecoming ceremonies,” said teacher Julie Courter, who advises Student Senate, which organizes homecoming. “This year, the court will participate in the parade using golf carts.”
