MINSTER — Wes Hegemann started more games than any other Minster football player in program history, a stalwart on the offense and defensive lines for four years as Minster retook its place as one of the Midwest Athletic Conference’s top programs.
Hegemann signed with the University of Dayton football program at a signing ceremony at Minster High School on Wednesday afternoon.
Hegemann, a 6-2, 265-pounder, said he got to grow as a player with the four years of playing time.
NEW BREMEN — New Bremen will remain a member of the Midwest Athletic Conference and field a football team in 2014, New Bremen Superintendent Howard Overman announced on Wednesday afternoon.
“After much discussion and weighing other options the New Bremen Schools will remain affiliated with Midwest Athletic Conference for all sanctioned sports,” Overman wrote in a written release.
FORT RECOVERY — The New Bremen and Fort Recovery girls basketball teams kept answering the call in a four-overtime thriller on Monday night.
A basket by Caley Schoenherr with 1:31 left in the fourth extra period and a few free throws eventually allowed the Indians to survive the Cardinals 70-66 in the marathon affair.
Both teams hit key shots to keep the game going in the overtimes.

The St. Marys junior dominated in the championship match for a 9-4 decision over Bath’s Zach Garrett to highlight a good day for the Roughriders on the mats at Kenton High School on Saturday.
