This week in 1963, the New Bremen Cardinals nearly hit the century mark in an easy defeat over Cridersville.
Powered by 21 points from Fark and Froning, the Cardinals pounced on Cridersville early and never let up in a 92-37 victory. Fledderjohn and Busse also scored in double-digits for New Bremen with 15 and 11 points respectively in a battle that started with New Bremen in command only 15-11 at the end of the first period.
NEW BREMEN — In response to the Newtown, Conn. shootings, New Bremen school board members approved significant safety measures Wednesday night.
Members approved a measure to bid out an approximately $45,000 renovation project to move the high school office into the current community room as a way to check visitors who would attempt to enter the building during school hours.
“Some teachers were really shook up ... some still are,” New Bremen Superintendent Howard Overman said.
WAYNESFIELD — The Waynesfield- Goshen girls basketball team likes to get a shot up within the first few seconds of every offensive possession. New Knoxville will pass the ball around for 15 passes before finding an open shot in its methodical half-court sets.
With time on it side, New Knoxville’s patience won out.
WAPAKONETA — Approximately 700 students were evacuated this morning from Wapakoneta Middle School after school officials discovered a bomb threat.
Wapakoneta City Schools Superintendent Keith Horner confirmed school officials were tipped off to a bomb threat this morning, but he would not disclose how the threat was made at this time.
“This is one of the few evacuations we have done,” Horner said. “Usually we learn about them prior to the school day.”
