CANTON — Botkins senior Logan Bauer returned home a state champion Wednesday as he won the state diving championship in finals at Canton.
But it wasn’t easy.
Bauer and Canton Central Catholic diver Alex Gonzalez were neck-and-neck throughout the entire competition. Gonzalez had a slight lead after the first dive, but Bauer recaptured the lead after the second dive and lead through the fourth dive.
Gonzalez again captured the lead after the fifth dive and was a fraction of a point ahead going into the final two dives.
SHAWNEE TOWNSHIP — Shawnee coach Jeff Heistan couldn’t remember ever seeing anything like it.
And Wapakoneta coach Rusty Allen didn’t ever want to see it again.
Heistan’s Indians blasted out to a 29-2 first-quarter lead and steamrolled their way to an 82-46 win over Allen’s Redskins in a Western Buckeye League varsity girls basketball game Thursday at Shawnee High School.
RAWSON — When the hard ones won’t fall, you have to make the free ones.
Waynesfield-Goshen did just that, overcoming a tough shooting night to pull out a 63-53 win over the Cory-Rawson Hornets in a non-league varsity girls basketball game Thursday night at Cory-Rawson High School.
The Tigers shot a paltry 14-of-52 (27 percent) from the floor for the game. But they more than made up for that with a 29-of-39 (74 percent) performance from the free throw line.
