Wapakoneta varsity coach Doug Frye has labeled his team’s first three games as the toughest he has ever dealt with in 16 seasons associated with the Western Buckeye League.
The Redskins’ first of those three games will be played Friday, against the Bellefontaine Chieftains, in Wapak’s lone non-league regular season game of 2013, before the team opens WBL play with Kenton and Elida.
Bellefontaine went 1-8 last season and lost the 2012 opener to Wapak, 49-13.
The Wapakoneta Redskins maintained their unbeaten record Wednesday after a 5-0 win over the Bluffton Pirates in a non-league varsity girls tennis match at the Wapakoneta Rotary Courts at Wapakoneta High School.
The Redskins improved to 6-0 overall this season.
Wapak’s win Wednesday was its third straight by a 5-0 score and fifth of the variety in six matches this season.
The Wapakoneta Redskins lost their first match of the season Monday in a 150-165 defeat against the Bath Wildcats in Western Buckeye League varsity boys golf play at Hawthorne Hills Golf Course in Lima.
Wapak’s team score of 165 was a season low, however.
Bobby Crow led Wapak with a 37. Drew Wayman was next with a 40. Nick Bruns had a 43, while Alex Gossard and Lucas Lightle each carded 45. Jared Miller added a 50.
