New Knoxville senior point guard Haley Horstman won her third straight Midwest Athletic Conference Player of the Year award when the girls all-conference lists were released on Monday night.

ST. MARYS — The shots didn’t fall and the St. Marys boys basketball just didn’t bring the energy on a wintry Monday night.
The Riders’ five-game winning streak came to an abrupt end against the zone defense of the Coldwater Cavaliers in a 47-34 fashion.
ST. MARYS — A recently elected St. Marys Board of Education member and the district's superintendent are at opposite sides of the spectrum regarding comments posted on an online forum last week.
St. Marys senior Jared Deubler's 54.85-second time in the 100 backstroke was good enough to qualify him for a return to the Division II OHSAA state swimming championships. Deubler, who finished fifth at the district meet on Friday night at Cleveland State, will make his third trip to state in his career.
Deubler will join teammate Madison Taylor, who will compete in the girls diving meet after her second-place finish at the district diving meet at Oak Harbor last week.

“Put on a hat!” St. Marys boys basketball coach Dan Hegemier bellowed out at Nathan Wilker as the junior exited Memorial High School after a 67-59 win against the defending Division III state champ Ottawa-Glandorf.
It was the most forceful instruction Hegemier had to give out Friday night. As the St. Marys boys basketball team gains confidence, Hegemier can do less steering and let his athletes do their thing on the court.
The Roughriders improvised their way to a fourth straight win by answering every O-G rally with one of their own.

ST. MARYS — Jared Knous, who played all over the field for the St. Marys Roughriders and became the worst nightmare for every Western Buckeye League quarterback during his senior season — will now move on to the next level.
Knous announced on Tuesday he will play college football at the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne.
