BASKETBALL: Rockets batter Trojans

December 28, 2011

BOTKINS — The Anna Rockets girls basketball team remained undefeated by easily taking care of Botkins in a 58-35 win Tuesday.

Anna jumped out to a big lead early, capturing an 18-7 lead in the first period and never looked back.

“They are a very good team,” Botkins varsity coach Don Mack said. “They get up and down the court in a hurry. We were able to force them into some outside shots but it wasn’t enough.”

Anna’s quickness got them plenty of second shots, as they pulled down 13 offensive rebounds in the contest.

BASKETBALL: Tigers topple Trojans

December 24, 2011

BOTKINS — The Botkins Trojans came ready to play in their 57-43 Shelby County League varsity boys basketball loss to Jackson Center on Friday night at Botkins High School.
The effort was there. The Trojans had a great game plan.
Simply put, the Tigers are just that good.
Botkins stayed close on the boards, losing them by only a 28-27 tote, and only turned the ball over nine times, but it wasn’t enough.
The Tigers answered by converting 14 of their 19 field goals with an assist and only turned the ball over eight times in the win.

TENNIS: Klock headed to UNOH

December 22, 2011

Wapakoneta Redskins senior Makenzie Klock is going to be a Racer netter.

Klock on Tuesday signed a national letter of intent to play tennis for the University of Northwestern Ohio Racers next year.

“It was a good fit for me because it was close to home,” Klock said. “I got a good opportunity.”

As her father and as Wapak varsity girls tennis coach, Mike Klock felt a double dose of pride.

“She’s put a lot of hours on the tennis court. I’m just tickled that she’s taking it to the college level,” he said.

BLUFFTON — Travis Bertram carved up the Bluffton Pirates defense like a Christmas ham Tuesday night, scoring 26 points to lead the Wapakoneta Redskins to a 52-35 win in a varsity boys basketball contest at Bluffton High School.

The junior forward scored 21 of the Redskins’ first 38 points — including 11 of their 14 first-quarter points — as Wapak pulled away and was never seriously challenged by the 0-5 Pirates.

Bertram was coming off a 28-point performance in Saturday’s 59-57 loss to the St. Henry Redskins.

December 22, 2011

The Wapakoneta varsity wrestling team recorded five pins in the final six matches to overcome a 15-point deficit and record a tough 42-33 victory over Indian Lake in a nonleague affair Tuesday night.

“Indian Lake is a good team and they have some good wrestlers so we are tickled to get a win out of it but we are not going to be satisfied because there is still a lot of work to be done,” said Redskin varsity coach Jason Rostorfer. “Those guys are going to be in our district in our realignment so we better be ready to see them again.”
