ST. HENRY — The ball barely touched the floor when St. Henry got its half-court offense clicking in the third quarter of its 71-48 win over St. Marys on Friday night.
The Redskins zipped the ball around and found a steady diet of point-blank baskets to feed a big third quarter.
“St. Henry passes the ball very, very well,” St. Marys head coach Dan Hegemier said. “It allows their team to get nice, easy looks.”

ST. MARYS — For senior Roughrider Ariel Dodson, life is music.
The 17-year-old begrudgingly picked up the bass guitar three years ago June, and after much hard work and instruction, fell in love with it. Her YouTube channel, named excetera66, features covers of the bass playing in songs she likes, as well as videos that teach viewers how to play the bass in certain songs. The content is “a lot of rock, some metal stuff. It depends. Sometimes I’ll play Deftones or Lamb of God,” Dodson said.
