Rangers, Wildcats earn sectional titles

February 24, 2014

NEW KNOXVILLE 47, FORT RECOVERY 32

COLDWATER — When shots aren’t falling, the New Knoxville girls basketball team has a pretty good safety net in a defense that shuts down opponents and a player like Haley Horstman who can create quality shots off the dribble.

Far from an offensive masterpiece, the Rangers team again showed they’re more than capable of winning a low-scoring affair to capture a Division IV sectional title with a 47-32 win over Fort Recovery on Saturday night.

February 22, 2014

CANTON — Jared Deubler finished off his record-setting swimming career at St. Marys Memorial with a 14th-place finish in the 100 yard backstroke at the Division II state swimming championships on Friday.

Deubler, who advanced to the B Final after finishing 10th in the preliminaries on Thursday night at the C.T. Branin Natatorium in Canton, turned in a 55.06-second time on Friday — about seven-tenths of a second off his time in the prelims.

Zaerr scores 28, but Van Wert tops St. Marys

February 22, 2014

VAN WERT — St. Marys junior center Quinn Zaerr controlled everything inside the paint on Friday as he put up 28 points and 11 rebounds, but Van Wert padlocked the perimeter defensively in its 60-51 victory over the Roughriders in the Western Buckeye League and regular season finale.

Zaerr’s career night wasn’t enough to keep up with an energized Van Wert team that spit fire after losing back-to-back games last weekend to Wapakoneta and Delphos Jefferson.

Horstman wins 3rd straight MAC Player of Year

February 18, 2014

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.

Horstman is just the second player in conference history to win the award three times. Marion Local’s Maria Moeller won it in 2004, 2005 and 2006.

Coldwater halts' Riders' 5-game win streak

February 18, 2014

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 Deubler headed back to state, Minster's Borgerding will compete in three events

February 17, 2014

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.

St. Marys sizzles on offense, beats O-G 67-59

February 15, 2014

“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.
