ST. MARYS — An annual fundraiser to help combat cancer swings into full gear today.
The St. Marys Tailgate for Cancer kicked off Friday night with a preview show in the St. Marys Eagles parking lot. Today’s festivities start with a 5K at 9 a.m., and will feature entertainment throughout the course, said Traci Lauth, co-owner of TLC and St. Marys Tailgate for Cancer committee member.
No one would ever call Kenton’s offense an afterthought, but while the Wildcats’ five-wide no-hold’s barred passing attack is still one of the country’s most prolific it’s the defense that has perhaps been most impressive through two weeks of the 2013 season.
Kenton’s defense held defending Division V state champion Coldwater to two points in the season opener. A week later, they shut out Wapakoneta for three quarters before giving up two fourth-quarter touchdowns when the game was already decided in a 52-16 rout.

LIMA — The St. Marys girls soccer team went on the road twice for key Western Buckeye League matches in the Lima area and twice used the same formula to emerge with wins: get up early and then hold on.
The Roughriders jumped out to a two-goal halftime lead on Bath in the first-half torrential rain and held on as the Wildkittens a late goal and peppered the goal with shots in the final two minutes. St. Marys’ 2-1 win is its fourth straight win.
NEW BREMEN — Two local schools went on a low-level lock down, controlling access to the doors Thursday morning after a runaway juvenile from New Bremen reportedly took a vehicle and a shotgun and rifle from his grandparents’ house in Shelby County.

Like the match, the St. Marys boys soccer team had its plans of rolling to a third Western Buckeye League win interrupted, but only for a little while.
A lightning delay and and an early deficit didn’t stop St. Marys from staying perfect in the WBL.
The Roughriders overcame stiff resistence from the Elida Bulldogs to score three second half goals — two of them via penalty kicks — to pull away for a 4-2 win on Tuesday in a game that was delayed about a half hour with 5:05 left in the first half.
ST. MARYS — A St. Marys Community Improvement Corporation controlled downtown storefront is looking for a new tenant.
Peak Submission, which was located in the storefront below Hotel Fort Barbee, moved out of the building last weekend. St. Marys Development Manager Susan Crotty said CIC officials are currently in the process of assessing the building and marketing it to potential tenants.
10 Years Ago This Week – 2003
Ten years ago this week in 2003, the St. Marys volleyball team moved to 4-5 on the season with a three-game victory over the 8-1 Ottawa Glandorf Titans.
The win bumped the Roughriders to 2-1 in league play, while it was the Titans first loss in WBL action.
