The field contending for postseason, as usual, narrowed considerably in week nine play in the area conferences.
As far as league titles go, both Ottawa-Glandorf in the WBL and Coldwater in the MAC clinched outright titles. In the NWCC, it appears Fairbanks and Fort Loramie will share the league title, considering their match ups in the final week.
However, several other teams are formidable in making a bid for the playoffs, and several have already clinched spots.
WAYNESFIELD — Both Patrick Henry and Waynesfield-Goshen came into Friday's game coming off of reeling losses and looking for a way to bounce back. Both teams were still in the thick of the postseason. It was the Patriots who were more prepared as they improved their playoff stock with a resounding 35-0 victory over the Tigers.
OTTAWA — The Wapakoneta Junior High Boys’ and Girls’ Cross Country teams both posted strong showings at the 2012 Western Buckeye League Championship meet on Saturday, including first place finishes in both the girls and boys race.
The meet, held at Ottawa-Glandorf Memorial Park, featured all teams from the WBL, and Wapakoneta took home fourth place in both divisions.
