KALIDA — The Minster girls basketball team sat in a 2-3 zone and dared Kalida to shoot the ball from the outside on Monday night.
When Kalida ventured to try to crack open the defense, there was a defensive force in the middle to turn the Putnam County Wildcats back.
Minster center Tara Clune swatted away a half dozen shots and scored a game-high 13 points as the Wildcats had a big second half that lifted them to a 41-26 non-conference win.

SPENCERVILLE — Victories like the one his team put up on Friday night over New Knoxville thrilled Spencerville head coach Kevin Sensabaugh a year ago as he shepherded an inexperienced group of players from a five-win team two seasons ago to a squad that was a win away from the regional tournament in 2011.
MINSTER — Minster erased a seven-point halftime deficit to defeat Botkins 56-50 on Friday night.
“I wasn’t feeling pretty good after the first 16 minutes, but our kids found a little bit of gut, grit, determination, whatever you want to call it. They stuck together, things started to go right,” said Minster head coach Mike Lee. “We hit a few shots and then it’s a matter of the confidence level raising, and we needed to see that.”
