MINSTER — The home course advantage played nicely into the hands of the Minster boys golf team and three Auglaize County golfers at the Midwest Athletic Conference’s championship meet.
The Wildcats captured the MAC title after following up an 8-1 regular season with a seven-strokes clear of its main competition, Versailles.
Minster shot a 323 team score to clinch the title after it was tied with Versailles with matching 8-1 conference records heading into the tournament.
ST. MARYS — Celina’s players ran off the field 47-7 victors over St. Marys as the clocktower struck midnight. Many of the Bulldogs looked like they were freshly molded on a potter’s wheel, helmet-to-toe slathered in mud.
The Bulldogs scored 41 unanswered points after a two-hour weather wait — a post-lightning delay doggy paddling on the oozing field of Skip Baughman Stadium.

ST. MARYS — Like the ominous-looking clouds surrounding the soccer field at West School on Monday night, the St. Marys boys soccer team threatened for much of the evening.

St. Marys and Celina played to a 0-0 draw in the Grand Lake St. Marys rivalry match on Monday night.
