Wapakoneta High School has earned the Western Buckeye League's all sports trophy for the second consecutive year.

The WBL's annual end-of-school year award — renamed the Superior Federal Credit Union Commissioner's Trophy after last school year — is awarded after each school year to the WBL member school that earns the most points in a formula based on performance in sports with recognized league championships.

The trophy is going to the Redskins for the fourth time in its 45-year history, made official Sunday in an email sent by WBL Commissioner David May.

Wapakoneta first won the trophy in 1990-91 and again in 1995-96 before receiving it the third time last school year.

The Redskins won eight of the 20 league titles in 2015-16 and finished sixth or higher in the standings for every sport.

League titles won by Wapakoneta this school year included football, girls tennis, wrestling, boys swimming and diving, boys bowling, girls bowling, softball and boys track and field.

The Redskins' trophy breaks a tie between Wapakoneta and St. Marys for fewest won among schools who have earned it at least once.
