A look at area sports 50, 25 and 10 years ago:
50 Years Ago This Week – 1963
This week in 1963, the St. Marys Roughriders headed north to Montpelier for a day of football scrimmages in both the morning and afternoon.
The Roughriders tallied four touchdowns in the morning session and pulled away with the 24-12 victory in the pre-season meeting. Tommy Hollman scored twice in the win with a 50-yard run and a ten-yard pass from quarterback Ralph Hecht.
SHAWNEE TOWNSHIP — The St. Marys and Shawnee girls soccer teams opened the Western Buckeye League in the wildest of fashion , a back-and-forth battle that ended in a 3-3 tie.
St. Marys had a one-goal lead twice in the match when Kristen Dammeyer and Anabela Godinho scored first half goals, only to watch Shawnee quickly tie the game. The Roughriders then turned the tables by erasing a second-half deficit with a Kami Menchoffer goal that tied the game at 3-3.
ST. MARYS — Members of the St. Marys Board of Education could vote to reinstate full busing during their Sept. 11 regular meeting following information provided during a work session Tuesday night.
Senior Transportation Coordinator for the Ohio School Boards Association Pete Japikse spoke to the St. Marys City School Board Tuesday evening about transportation funding for the district for the 2014-2015 school year during a work session.
The local sports schedule for Tuesday, Aug. 27:
LCC at Van Wert
Lima Temple Christian at Wapakoneta
Botkins at Spencerville
Sidney head football coach Adam Doenges built a four-win team a season ago from the wreckage of back-to-back 0-10 seasons. Now he says it’ll take a slightly different tack to make the Yellow Jackets into a winner.
That means a little less coddling and more responsibility from a Sidney team that will play host to the St. Marys Roughriders on Friday night at 7 p.m. in a regular-season opener for both squads.
A pair of Roughrider golfers went low in a Western Buckeye League win. St. Marys’ Carter Bowman shot a 35 and Colin Burke had a 36 to lead the Roughriders to a 162-170 win over Elida on Monday night.
Trent Cutlip led Elida with a 39. Nate Cellar added a 40 for the Bulldogs. St. Marys hosts Van Wert on Thursday at 5 p.m.
St. Marys 162, Elida 170
Parkway 163, New Bremen 166
Elida 5, St. Marys 0
Wapakoneta 5, Bath 0
Celina 4, Defiance 1
