NEW KNOXVILLE — The St. Henry Redskins outlasted the New Knoxville Rangers 25-20, 24-26, 26-24, 25-27, 15-11, in a Midwest Athletic Conference volleyball opener at The Barn on Thursday. Haley Horstman had 21 digs, 10 kills and 22 assists for the Rangers. Meg Reineke finished the game with 41 digs, two aces and seven kills. Kenzie Schroer had 11 kills and five assists. Rachel Leffel had six kills. Madison Lammers had four kills and a block. Kalyn Schroer added an ace. Jenna Schwieterman had three kills. New Knoxville is 2-3 and 0-1 in the MAC.
This week in 1963, the St. Marys Roughriders headed north to Montpelier for a day of football scrimmages in both the morning and afternoon.
The Roughriders tallied four touchdowns in the morning session and pulled away with the 24-12 victory in the pre-season meeting. Tommy Hollman scored twice in the win with a 50-yard run and a ten-yard pass from quarterback Ralph Hecht.
SHAWNEE TOWNSHIP — The St. Marys and Shawnee girls soccer teams opened the Western Buckeye League in the wildest of fashion , a back-and-forth battle that ended in a 3-3 tie.
St. Marys had a one-goal lead twice in the match when Kristen Dammeyer and Anabela Godinho scored first half goals, only to watch Shawnee quickly tie the game. The Roughriders then turned the tables by erasing a second-half deficit with a Kami Menchoffer goal that tied the game at 3-3.
Sidney head football coach Adam Doenges built a four-win team a season ago from the wreckage of back-to-back 0-10 seasons. Now he says it’ll take a slightly different tack to make the Yellow Jackets into a winner.
That means a little less coddling and more responsibility from a Sidney team that will play host to the St. Marys Roughriders on Friday night at 7 p.m. in a regular-season opener for both squads.
