OTTAWA — St. Marys head tennis coach Brice Brenneman came into Friday night’s Western Buckeye League tennis opener feeling the Ottawa-Glandorf Titans were the league team most even with his team’s skillset this spring.
The two teams played a close match, with O-G pulling out a 3-2 victory over St. Marys.
“Ottawa is a good team,” Brenneman said. “It would’ve been nice to pull this one out, but the effort was good and I see us getting better at a couple positions.”
CELINA — The New Bremen baseball team had its chances as Celina pitchers walked 11 batters, but six Cardinal errors allowed the Bulldogs to stay undefeated with a 10-2 victory over the Cardinals at Montgomery Field on Friday.
“We walked a lot and left a lot of batters on,” Cardinals head coach Josh Bowersock said. “We also got picked off a lot. We had errors, we got picked off and we lose the ballgame. When you look at the errors and the times we got picked off and that was the basis of the game.”
ST. MARYS — Coldwater’s sophomores have made quite an impression on head baseball coach Brian Harlamert early in the season. Friday night was no different.
Coldwater sophomore back-up catcher Blake Spangler had a key two-run pinch hit single that opened the floodgates for the Coldwater offense while sophomore pitcher Greg Gilliland tossed five one-hit, shutout innings to lead the Cavaliers to an 11-0 win over the Roughriders on Friday night at K.C. Geiger Park.
