GIRLS BASKETBALL: Rangers charged with slowing down one of Ohio's best scorers

March 7, 2012

The New Knoxville girls basketball team is back on the regional stage for the first time in five years with a match-up against one of the most prolific scorers in Ohio girls basketball history.

Hardly a stranger recently to regional basketball, New Madison Tri-Village hopes a third time is a charm for a breakthrough to the state tournament.

The two teams, both hailing from small Western Ohio villages of fewer than 1,000 people, meet in a Division IV regional semifinal on Thursday night at Tipp City Tippecanoe High School at 6:15 p.m.

BOWLING: Rider girls get to elite eight, bow out to Coldwater

March 3, 2012

COLUMBUS — The St. Marys girls bowling team qualified to the OHSAA state elite eight  before Coldwater pulled off three straight Baker Games to rally past the Roughriders on Saturday afternoon.

St. Marys, which won the state championship a season ago, won the first two Baker games against the Cavaliers to take a commanding 2-0 lead with scores of 165-154 and 192-171.

But Coldwater won the next three games to oust the Riders, 222-164, 242-196 and 236-135.

BOYS BASKETBALL: St. Henry wins 11th straight, bounces New Bremen

March 3, 2012

 

COLDWATER — The last time the streaking St. Henry Redskins lost, it came to New Bremen back on Jan. 20.

So when the Redskins figured they’d likely be playing the Cardinals again in the sectional final after the draw in early February, they knew how they wanted to attack the New Bremen Cardinals.

St. Henry wanted to control the paint.

BOYS BASKETBALL: Fort Recovery's quick start lifts Indians past Minster

March 3, 2012

 

COLDWATER — Minster hoped Fort Recovery’s seven-day layoff meant it had the advantage out of the gate in Friday night’s sectional title game.

Instead, the Indians looked like the same well-oiled machine that emerged from the regular season atop the Midwest Athletic Conference standings.

Fort Recovery’s jackrabbit starts to the first and third quarters built up a cushion that carried the state’s third-ranked to a Division IV sectional crown with a 54-35 win over Minster in the opening game at The Palace on Friday.

GIRLS BASKETBALL: New Knoxville advances, Fort Recovery stunned in fourth quarter

March 2, 2012

ST. MARYS — The New Knoxville girls basketball team has no problem waiting as long as it takes for an opposing defense to break down.

At times on Thursday night, it took a Job-like patience to get the job done.

Undersized Ada pestered and pushed the bigger, stronger New Knoxville girls basketball team for more than three quarters on Thursday night, threatening to set up what has been unthinkable recently — a Division IV district title game in western Ohio without a Midwest Athletic Conference team.

HEY, I REMEMBER THAT!: A look back at area sports 10, 25 and 50 years ago

March 1, 2012


25 Years Ago This Week – 1987
This week in 1987, Mike Kiehl’s St. Marys Roughriders concluded their regular season with a 68-57 victory over the Parkway Panthers.  The Roughriders got down to business immediately after the opening tip and thumped the Panthers 20-8 in the opening eight minutes.  Things played out a little more even in the second quarter, but St. Marys still managed to break for intermission in front, 35-22.
