Column: Carrier classic means so much more than basketball

November 12, 2012

 

Ohio State and Marquette were set to square off on the U.S.S. Yorktown in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

Until tipoff. When the floor started to accumulate condensation. After an hour delay, the game was called due to excessive condensation, and the safety of the players was in serious jeopardy. 

I guess that’s the risk of playing a game on a boat. Parked in the ocean. In the middle of November.

Column: Proof that off-season workouts can be fun

November 9, 2012

 

It’s that awkward time. 

That time in between fall sports and winter sports. There aren’t a lot of sporting events. There isn’t a lot to report on.

But that doesn’t mean Wapakoneta High School athletes aren’t putting in the time and the effort to succeed.

FOOTBALL: Despite loss, W-G sneaks into playoffs

October 27, 2012

 

MIAMISBURG — It's not often you offer a team congratulations following a bitter defeat.

Waynesfield-Goshen ended its regular season on a sour note as they dropped a 45-12 decision to Dayton Christian Friday, but still found itself sitting in the postseason.

Despite the loss, the Tigers got help from Jefferson Township, South Charleston Southeastern Local, and New Miami. Those three teams came into the game as the only three teams able to catch the Tigers, and all three lost.

Playoff outlook around the area

October 25, 2012

 

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.

FOOTBALL: Stakes much different this year for Kenton game

October 25, 2012

 

Last year, it was the game of the year in the Western Buckeye League.

Undefeated Wapakoneta.

Undefeated Kenton. 

This year the stakes are different. Neither team is fighting for an outright WBL title. But both teams are fighting for something.

For the Kenton Wildcats, the outcome of this game weighs heavily on their playoff chances.

For the Redskins, this football game is solely about revenge and pride following the 53-35 loss last year.
