The Ohio High School Athletic Association has approved a list of referendum items to be voted upon by its member school principals this May.
Nothing on this year's May ballot is as significant as past years, when arguably the most controversial topic in the state's high school sports landscape — competitive balance — was voted upon (and finally approved last spring).
A full summary of the items up for vote will appear in the Friday, Jan. 30 edition of the Wapakoneta Daily News.
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (January 26, 2015) — A new penalty system for an unnecessary delay in starting or resuming play in high school volleyball was approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Volleyball Rules Committee at its January 5-7 meeting in Indianapolis.
WAYNESFIELD — From the tiny town of Waynesfield to the inside of an NFL stadium, Brandon Bly, a senior at Waynesfield-Goshen High School, recently played in the Blue-Grey All-American Game in Tampa, Fla., at Raymond James Stadium, home of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
His teammates and opponents in the game originated from all over the country and included a few notable Division I recruits, some of whom will be playing football at FBS programs such as West Virginia, Maryland, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Illinois.
NEW KNOXVILLE — The Wapakoneta Redskins are no strangers to games going down to the wire during this 2014-2015 season. The latest win was yet another instance of the Redskins coming through near the end.
Wapakoneta’s Kodi Morgan knocked down a game-winning jumper with 13 seconds left to give the Redskins’ varsity boys basketball team a 45-43 victory at New Knoxville on Tuesday night.
“We’ve played in a lot of close games this year,” Redskins coach Doug Selvey said. “I think those games helped us win this game.”
BATH TWP. — Three buckets by Adam Henderson, and a pair of free throws each by Jarrett Koch and Kodi Morgan late in the fourth quarter helped the Wapakoneta Redskins emerge victorious Friday against the Bath Wildcats.
Wapakoneta overcame an eight-point halftime deficit and 23 points by Bath’s Andrew Renner to notch a 50-46 win Friday in a Western Buckeye League varsity boys basketball contest at Bath High School.
The Redskins’ win was their second league victory this season, matching their WBL win total from last season.
Against a very good team like the Bath Wildkittens, opponents cannot come up short on executing the little things throughout the course of the game. The Wapakoneta Redskins, however, came up short on those facets of the game Thursday, in a matchup of two teams with 3-0 league records.
Madison Dackin poured in 19 points and guided Bath to a commanding 50-34 win over the Redskins in a Western Buckeye League varsity girls basketball game in Wapakoneta.
