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.
The Redskins had to battle from behind in almost every 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.

Firefighters train on vehicle stabilization, saving ‘victims’

The distinctive Wapakoneta business’s light green truck is flipped over. The truck sits resting on a piece of metal at a 30-degree angle. Mangled metal stabs the ground and broken glass lies around the cab.
Approximately 25 firefighters and auxiliary firefighters with the Wapakoneta Fire Department quickly move around the truck determining the best location to place cribbing as a shift captain explains what needs to be done and giving them the reasons for its placement. Rain pelts the soaked ground, making the most stable of ground
even less reliable.

Fresh produce added to lunch menu

September 9, 2011

From sweet corn husked straight out of the field to tomatoes fresh from the vine, students in the Wapakoneta City Schools this year are eating local produce as part of their lunches.
Already this year, students at Wapakoneta Middle School and Wapakoneta High School have enjoyed sweet corn grown in a field by an FFA student. Slices of tomato grown by other FFA students in a community garden also are making their way onto sandwiches.
“We’re already discussing what we can do next year,” Wapakoneta City Schools Food Service Supervisor Lori McKean said.
