CELINA — Wapakoneta's Caleb Acheson never appeared to be in control on any of the four sudden death playoff holes to decide second place at the Celina Bulldog Invitational at Fox's Den on Friday.

“It’s medalist, but it could’ve been a whole lot better,” Bowman said.

WAPAKONETA — Treg Drexler watched his dad Tony compete in demolition derbies for years, so he relished the chance when the second session of Thursday night's Auglaize County Fair derby came down to just the two family members.
"He's been at it for over 27 years," Treg said. "I knew he was going to be tough to beat. I knew I had to get on him from the get-go and drive like he'd drive."
Treg, driving a black 1993 Lincoln Continental, bested his father, Tony, who drove a green 1970s Ford station wagon.
