Wapak wins ACME sectional crown over Minster

July 7, 2011

MINSTER — The Wapakoneta ACME baseball team showed it could make things interesting late — in both the best and worst sense  — during the Auglaize County sectional tournament this week.

But above all the Redskins revealed that they were the county's best summer baseball team.

Wapakoneta held off a late Minster charge for a 6-5 win in the sectional title game on Wednesday night to finish the tournament unscathed with a 3-0 record with comebacks and close calls throughout.

Redskins Come Back Against Cardinals

June 29, 2011

WAPAKONETA — With five runs in the last two innings the Wapakoneta ACME baseball team overcame a 5-2 lead to defeat New Bremen 7-5 Tuesday evening at Wapakoneta.

“It was an ugly game at the start,” Wapakoneta assistant coach Nick Sammetinger said. “We got it done in the end with clutch hits and got the runs when we needed them.”

New Bremen coach Logan O’Neil pointed to some mistakes late in the game but praised his team’s effort.

Athletic Director Joe Bline issued his resignation Tuesday morning, effective July 31. Bline told The Evening Leader he accepted the same position for the Marysville School District.

Cards Cruise To Victory

June 28, 2011

NEW BREMEN — A quick start and dominating pitching helped spur the New Bremen ACME team to a five-inning win over New Knoxville Monday night.

“Our pitchers really need to work on throwing strikes,” New Knoxville head coach Calib Allen said of his team’s 18-0 loss. “We gave up nine walks in the first two innings and that is unacceptable. We have to have our pitchers be competitive on the mound. They have to keep the ball low to get ground balls.”

Redskins Shut Out Riders

June 28, 2011

WAPAKONETA — Dylan Knoch didn’t take over as Wapakoneta’s lead-off hitter until midseason.

Monday night he looked more like a cleanup hitter.

Knoch hit a lead-off home run in the first inning that proved to be the only offense Wapak would need in a 3-0 win over rival St. Marys in an ACME baseball game at Wapakoneta High School.
