The St. Marys girls tennis team closed out the home portion of their schedule with a 3-2 loss to Bluffton on Monday.
St. Marys has lost three straight home matches by that narrow 3-2 score, with a doubles match making the difference.
“It was a familiar script,” St. Marys head coach Brice Brenneman said. “That was a pretty solid first doubles team we were going up against and we had things going our way, but it slipped away from us.”

CELINA — Both teams seemed on the cusp of breaking through on Saturday night. Instead, the St. Marys and Celina boys soccer teams played to a scoreless tie for the second straight season.
Shots rattled off the crossbar, goalkeepers soared through the air to make vital saves and both St. Marys and Celina — after waiting two extra days to renew their rivalry — ended up waiting all 80 minutes for a goal that never appeared.
VERAILLES — The Minster boys golf team ran away from the rest of the field and captured the Midwest Athletic Conference boys golf title at Stillwater on Saturday.
Minster shot a 313, led by tournament medalist John Burke’s 76, to win the MAC tourney title by 20 strokes. Parkway finished second with a 333 score. Versailles, which entered the tournament along with Minster unbeaten in league play, finished third with a 341 score.
ST. MARYS — Elida used a huge game on the ground from quarterback Logan Alexander to stop a two-game losing streak in a 34-14 win over St. Marys at Skip Baughman Stadium on a deluged Friday night.
Now the Bulldogs will have to find a way to win without their sophomore signal caller next week.
SHAWNEE -- Carter Bowman knocked on the door for two years. Now the St. Marys junior golfer has been crowned the Western Buckeye League’s best.
Bowman emerged on the third hole of a playoff at the Western Buckeye League Championship meet at Shawnee Country Club to cap a big Friday. Bowman shot an even par 72, beat Kenton’s Britton Hensel in the playoff for the tournament’s medalist honors and took home the WBL’s Player of the Year award.
