VAN WERT — The New Knoxville volleyball team made the defending state champions work for their latest district championship.

ELIDA — After 80 fruitless minutes, the St. Marys boys soccer team wasted little time in overtime to keep its postseason run going.
Zac Nelson booted the Roughriders into the district title game with a golden goal a little more than a minute into extra time on Wednesday night, and the Roughriders defeated the Bryan Golden Bears 1-0 in a Division II district semifinal.
WAPAKONETA — Wapakoneta head coach Doug Frye put the ball and his trust in the hands of a first-time starting sophomore quarterback in the St. Marys game.
Aaron Huffman looked quite comfortable running the Redskin Wing-T attack in his varsity debut with a player like Keaton Metz catching his passes and a hulking fullback like Zach Schmerge bowling over Roughrider defenders.
Wapakoneta romped 49-14 over the Roughriders at Harmon Field on Friday night to continue its success against their Augalize County rival since Frye arrived.
