MINSTER — The St. Henry Redskins’ big comeback denied Minster a chance to wrap up a share of the Midwest Athletic Conference title on Monday night.
The Redskins roared back from a late three-run deficit with seven runs in the top of the fifth inning to defeat the Wildcats 8-6 in a MAC showdown.
ELIDA — St. Marys outfielder Tristan Becker dove headfirst in shallow center to snag a quick-sinking liner to end the bottom of the fourth inning, stranding a pair of baserunners and denying Kenton its first and game-tying run.
St. Marys starting pitcher Codie Deaton didn’t need much help in Saturday’s tournament opener, but he found it in plays on defense like Becker's and in the bats of his Roughrider teammates.
ST. MARYS — A couple of perfectly placed bunts helped turn the St. Marys baseball team’s night at the plate from frustrating to fruitful.
St. Marys scored five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to rally past Marion Local 7-4 on Thursday at K.C. Geiger Park.

Now the Wildcats are a win on Friday away from clinching at least a share of the Midwest Athletic Conference title.
ELIDA — St. Marys’ pitching and defense has the team playing its best baseball heading into the regular season’s final weeks. The latest proof was a 4-1 win over Elida at Ed Sandy Field on Monday.
Codie Deaton held the Elida offense in check for five-plus innings before Austin James finished things off for the save with two innings of one-run relief to lead the Roughriders to their second straight win.
MINSTER — Minster again sought out a young, hungry coach to lead its football program.
After a record-setting three-year run under Nate Moore, the Wildcats will turn to Urbana's Geron Stokes to keep a program that has been to the playoffs three straight seasons and became one of the Midwest Athletic Conference's most consistent winners on the rise.
Minster is expected to hire Stokes as its head football coach, pending approval from the school board at its meeting on May 20.
NEW BREMEN — Going into the final race of the day the St. Henry Redskins boys’ team trailed Sidney Lehman by one point, but in the 3200 relay the Redskins won the race to defeat Sidney Lehman 94-85 to win the 13th annual Cardinal Invitational in a sunny, sunsplashed New Bremen on Saturday.
On the girls side Russia pulled away at the end to defeat Marion Local 134-120. Spencerville was third with 88 points and Sidney was fourth with 78. St. Marys was fifth with 73 and New Bremen was sixth with 33 points. New Knoxville was 12th with 15 points.
ST. MARYS — Johnny Crawford’s bottom of the first could’ve turned disastrous. The first three St. Marys batters reached base off Wapakoneta’s left-handed ace and Roughrider clean-up hitter Mason Gross hit a screamer to the left side of the infield that had multiple runs batted in written all over it.
The ball instead landed in the glove of Wapak third baseman Marshall Gerlach, who snagged the hissing liner and doubled up the runner at third base by stepping on the bag to defuse the potentially explosive half inning.
