Drew Jacobs became the 46th St. Marys National Little League player to win the Galen Cisco Award, which is given out by Cisco and the St. Marys Rotary Club.
Jacobs was given a plaque by former major league pitcher and pitching coach Galen Cisco in a ceremony at K.C. Geiger Park.
The award has been presented by the St. Marys Rotary Club since 1965 in honor of Cisco, a Memorial High School grad, an Ohio State football captain and major league pitcher who won an college football national championship and a World Series in his career.
MINSTER — Jay Eilerman and the Minster ACME baseball team did almost everything needed to move on in the district tournament in just the first inning.
Eilerman threw a no-hop strike from centerfield 275 feet away to a spot near the plate to gun down a Fort Loramie baserunner, and he then doubled and tripled in the first inning to spearhead a seven-run top of the first for Minster.
The Wildcats’ pitching took it from there in Minster’s 7-3 win over Fort Loramie on Thursday night at Hanover Street Park.
MIDWAY, Utah — Michael Schmitmeyer shot a four-over par in the second round of the United States Golf Association’s Public Links Championship on Tuesday at Soldier Hollow Golf Course.
Schmitmeyer, a St. Marys Memorial and University of Findlay grad, finished tied for 77th. His six-over part two-day total was two shots off the pace needed to qualify for the match play portion of the event.
MINSTER — Wapakoneta strolled through most of the Auglaize County sectional ACME baseball tournament without using its best available pitcher.
When top-seeded Wapak finally pulled its ace out of the back pocket, Chace Culver was unhittable.
Culver threw five no-hit innings and reliever Dominic Campos finished off the shutout with two scoreless innings as Wapakoneta wrapped up the Auglaize County sectional ACME title with a 7-0 win over Minster on Friday night.
