ST. MARYS – It was total domination Friday evening for the St. Marys ACME baseball team against previously unbeaten Wapakoneta.
St. Marys got the runs going in the third inning and defeated Wapakoneta 10-0 in five innings at K.C. Geiger Park.
“This season we have been very successful in executing in situations,” St. Marys head coach Alan Huber said. “Sometimes it has been with a hit, sometimes by making the pitcher work or by getting a couple bunts down and forcing some errors.”

Minster 6, New Bremen 2
NEW BREMEN — The Minster ACME baseball team batted around in the sixth inning and broke open a 2-2 game with four runs and a 6-2 victory over the New Bremen ACME Thursday at New Bremen.
It was the first victory for Minster in the ACME season.
“I thought we hit the ball pretty well tonight and I’m pleased with how the players came to the plate with a good approach ,” Minster coach Alex Brandewie said.
New weight room equipment was installed at Memorial High School on June 8 and the early feedback from the students has been positive.
“Kids can be pretty tough on equipment so we made sure we got heavy-duty stuff that will hold up,” St. Marys Athletic Director Joe Bline said.
The Equipment Guys, a company out of Urbancrest, Ohio, supplied the equipment.
The cost of the weight room equipment was originally $60,000, but the three lowest bids for the equipment all came in over $10,000 below that estimate in March.
