After state final loss, Russia's Puthoff brings game-winning hit ball to Minster senior
By Colin Foster

On June 3, Niemeyer's single in the bottom of the seventh inning allowed Jared Huelsman to score the winning run in a 2-1 victory over the Raiders at Huntington Park in Columbus. The hit gave the Wildcats their third state title in the last seven years and also denied the Raiders their first title since 1971. [More]
