50 Years Ago This Week – 1962

Fifty years ago this week, the St. Marys Roughriders tipped off boys basketball season with a 55-34 victory over Greenville.  

As both teams seemed plagued by season-opening jitters and ice-cold shooting, Greenville led after the first quarter, 8-7 only to have St. Marys out-score them 14-2 in the second period to take a 21-10 lead into the locker room at intermission.

Fort Loramie built a double-digit lead and then held off a late New Knoxville charge in the fourth quarter to earn a 55-51 win on Tuesday night.

WAPAKONETA — Marion Local has tightrope walked its way to Massillon.

The Flyers (12-2) will play Newark Catholic on Friday, Nov. 30 at Massillon’s Paul Brown Tiger Stadium with a chance to win back-to-back state crowns and earn the school’s sixth state championship.

November 10, 2012

 

PIQUA — Marion Local kept trying to drive the stake into Minster’s heart.

That took a long time in a memorable playoff shootout on Friday between Midwest Athletic Conference rivals.

The Wildcats simply ran out of time. Never heart.

Volleyball: Marion Local a win away from another state title

November 10, 2012

FAIRBORN — Buckeye Central head coach Bill Bonham didn’t wait until Saturday to proclaim a volleyball state champion in Division IV.

He’d already seen the Marion Local Flyers up close on Friday wield three unstoppable hitters to a three-game sweep in a state semi-final.

Bonham doesn’t see anyone having an answer for what the Flyers can put on the court. He said he expected Marion Local to hoist its fourth state title trophy in six years on Saturday.
