ROCKFORD — The St. Marys boys basketball team headed into the new year on a high note once again.
The Roughriders evened up their record for the season and won the Chatt Insurance Holiday Tournament at Parkway for the third straight year with a 71-62 victory over the host Panthers on Friday night.
“We’re 4-4 and it’s a good way to finish the end of the year,” St. Marys head coach Dan Hegemier said.
FT. LORAMIE — The New Bremen Cardinals basketball team used their speed and depth to pull away from the Ft. Loramie Redskins in the fourth quarter for a 58-39 victory Friday evening at Ft. Loramie.
“Our conditioning and ability to play a lot of kids put us over the hump in the second quarter tonight,” Cardinals head coach Adam Dougherty said. “Our depth was a big factor in the game tonight.”

SPENCERVILLE — Victories like the one his team put up on Friday night over New Knoxville thrilled Spencerville head coach Kevin Sensabaugh a year ago as he shepherded an inexperienced group of players from a five-win team two seasons ago to a squad that was a win away from the regional tournament in 2011.
MINSTER — Minster erased a seven-point halftime deficit to defeat Botkins 56-50 on Friday night.
“I wasn’t feeling pretty good after the first 16 minutes, but our kids found a little bit of gut, grit, determination, whatever you want to call it. They stuck together, things started to go right,” said Minster head coach Mike Lee. “We hit a few shots and then it’s a matter of the confidence level raising, and we needed to see that.”
