COLUMBUS (AP) — With the hours dwindling until the deadline for Ohio State’s response to NCAA allegations of improper benefits and a cover up in the football program, athletic director Gene Smith said Thursday that he’s disappointed by “where we are” even as he’s encouraged by the work of the school’s compliance department.

ACME: Wapak holds off Minster for title

July 7, 2011

MINSTER — The Wapakoneta ACME baseball team showed it could make things interesting late — in both the best and worst sense  — during the Auglaize County sectional tournament this week.
But above all the Redskins revealed that they were the county’s best summer baseball team.
Wapakoneta held off a late Minster charge for a 6-5 win in the sectional title game on Wednesday night to finish the tournament unscathed with a 3-0 record with comebacks and close calls throughout.

ACME: Wapak to face Minster

July 6, 2011

MINSTER — A rough start to Tuesday night’s game didn’t deter the Minster ACME baseball team from assuring itself of a trip to the district tournament.

Wapak, the No. 2 seed, and Minster will battle for the sectional crown tonight at 6. Since the tournament is double-elimination, if Minster wins that game the two teams will play again at 8:15.

July 5, 2011

MINSTER — Regardless of what happens Wednesday, the Wapakoneta ACME baseball team is headed to the district tournament.

Wapak scored five runs in the top of the seventh inning to rally to a 6-4 win over St. Marys in a sectional semifinal Sunday at Hanover Park in Minster.

“It’s a huge, huge win,” Wapak coach Willie Sammetinger said. “I can’t say enough.”

ACME: Error-prone Wapak escapes with win

July 2, 2011

MINSTER — Two errors is human.
Nine is just ridiculous.
Even when you win.
Wapakoneta almost ruined Brandon Miller’s nearly pristine pitching performance with nine errors but pulled out a 7-6 win over New Bremen in the opening round of the ACME baseball sectional tournament Friday at Hanover Park in Minster.
Miller drove in Josh Apple with a walk-off single in the bottom of the seventh inning to give Wapak the win.
Despite four innings of no-hit baseball, Miller and Wapakoneta trailed 5-4 after four innings.
