Monday's Area Sports Round-Up

September 24, 2013

The St. Marys girls tennis team closed out the home portion of their schedule with a 3-2 loss to Bluffton on Monday.

St. Marys has lost three straight home matches by that narrow 3-2 score, with a doubles match making the difference.

“It was a familiar script,” St. Marys head coach Brice Brenneman said. “That was a pretty solid first doubles team we were going up against and we had things going our way, but it slipped away from us.”

Kids Read To Dogs

September 24, 2013

NEW BREMEN — The first six children gathered for Paws 2 Read Monday at New Bremen Public Library, with even more children on the waiting list for the chance to read to a registered therapy dog.

The idea is that for struggling readers in kindergarten through second grade, reading out loud in front of a class can be a stressful. Reading with a therapy dog, on the other hand, gives students a chance to practice without fear of making mistakes.

“The dogs listen, and don’t tease, laugh or judge,” Branch Supervisor Shelly Parker said.
