ACME Baseball: Wapak downs St. Marys

June 8, 2012

ST. MARYS — Aside from a failed early wooden bat experiment, Wapakoneta has continued its success into the summer.

“They tried them in batting practice in the spring and they thought they might want to try them in the game,” Wapakoneta ACME coach Willie Sammetinger said, with a chuckle. “Well, they broke $200 worth of bats last night in Elida. They just fractured them. So we’re slowly but surely starting to go back to metal.”

TRACK & FIELD: Area athletes excel on first day at state meet

June 2, 2012

COLUMBUS — Not every victory need be accompanied by a rise to the top of the podium at the state track meet.

Sometimes the consistency of a three-year run of excellence like the one Kayla Wuebker completed on Friday or the perseverance to get back to the state meet and excel after a disappointing hiatus like Wapakoneta’s Megan Hayzlett displayed are achievement enough.
