COLDWATER — It was a good day for the New Bremen Cardinals and New Knoxville Rangers volleyball teams Tuesday evening as both squads advanced to the Division IV sectional championship matches at Coldwater.
â€‹The Cardinals battled the Minster Wildcats in a five-set match early in the season, but Tuesday New Bremen had everything going their way as they defeated the Wildcats 25-22, 25-16 and 25-19 in the first semi-final.
â€‹In the second semi-final match the New Knoxville Rangers dominated the Spencerville Bearcats 25-9, 25-2 and 25-7.
LIMA — The New Knoxville boys soccer team has grown fond of playing on the turf at Lima Stadium. The success they’ve had there has raised expectations in the Ranger program, too.
New Knoxville’s Ryan Lageman scored three goals and K.V. Mooney added two more in New Knoxville’s 5-1 win over Lima Temple Christian in a Division III sectional final at Lima Stadium on Tuesday evening.
The St. Marys and Celina boys soccer teams will meet again — and this time someone will walk away a winner.
Celina beat Kenton 2-0 on Monday night in a sectional semifinal match at Ryan Field in Wapakoneta to advance to Thursday evening’s sectional championship game against the Roughriders.
St. Marys and Celina played to a scoreless tie in the regular season as well as a scoreless tie during the 2012 season. The two teams last played in a tournament match in 2007, when Celina won 2-0 in a sectional championship game.
ST. MARYS – When senior Kristen Dammeyer took up cross country this fall, she was joining a veteran St. Marys girls cross country team with high hopes for 2013.
Dammeyer and the Riders fulfilled those aspirations on Saturday with a second-place finish and a four-place improvement from last year’s WBL championship meet.
The senior-led St. Marys girls cross country team had six runners finish in the top 22 as the Roughriders captured second place on their home course at the WBL meet at the course near Memorial High School.
â€‹MINSTER — The Minster Wildcats didn’t waste much time Friday night getting on the scoreboard in front of a homecoming crowd. The Wildcats forced the Parkway Panthers to punt and on one 54-yard run by junior Sam Dues the Wildcats had a quick lead.
