Redskins advance to district final

Sports Editor

The Wapakoneta Redskins finally broke through at the Miller City High School district site.

After semifinal losses each of the past three years at the Putnam County school, the Redskins recorded a win, disposing of the Shawnee Indians in a 12-1 five-inning win Tuesday in a high school softball Division II district semifinal.

Wapakoneta (22-1) will play in its first district championship game since 2010 at 3:30 p.m. Saturday against the winner of Defiance and Celina, who play Wednesday at Miller City. The original brackets stated a noon start time for the game Saturday, but due to Wapakoneta's graduation ceremonies Saturday morning, the start time was pushed back.
