VAN WERT - St. Marys entered Saturday with a chance to win its first Western Buckeye League wrestling championship since 1977 as the Roughriders tried to pair its regular season duals title with a tournament title at the Cougar Den in Van Wert.
Instead, Wapakoneta dominated the tournament and captured three championships to win the tournament. That, paired with St. Marys' finishing fourth in the tournament, allowed the Redskins to win the overall championship. [More]

FORT RECOVERY - Most associate the Olympics with world-class athleticism and remarkable physical feats, but the kids in Cindy Moorman's technology class have been celebrating the two-week competition in a different way.
At the start of her noon class each day this week, Moorman split her fifth-grade students into groups to try their hands at a different Winter Olympic event - ice hockey; curling; freestyle, alpine and downhill skiing; or figure skating. [More]

MINSTER - Last year's game between Minster and Fort Recovery was one of the most thrilling of the season.
This year's game, however, lacked the same excitement of last year's quadruple-overtime affair.
Mike Ketner scored 17 points and Jarod Schulze tallied 12 points and 10 rebounds in his return from a concussion as the Wildcats pulled away from the Indians with an 18-6 run in the third quarter en route to a 55-44 victory on Senior Night in Minster. [More]
