Wabash County High School Basketball on Wabash WebTV

by Bill Barrows

I’ve been a bit of a slacker thus far in the football season. No excuses other than to say that I have been busy and failed to get back into the journalism groove.  Please accept my humble apology! I want to assure you that the Wabash WebTV crew will be on hand to bring all the action from the Wabash County teams from fall throughout the school year.

by Gary Andrews

It was a typical inter-county battle at Wabash Thursday night as the Wabash and Northfield volleyball teams went to battle. The Lady Apaches took the first two games before the Norse turned the table, winning the next three for a 21-25, 23-25, 25-18, 25-22, 15-9 win over Wabash.

In game one the Norse got off to a quick start with two kills from Tori Snyder and one from Cassidy Miller to lead 3-0 before Wabash went to work. Taking advantage of four straight Norse errors Wabash would score 10 of the next 12 points to grab a 12-6 lead. During the run Wabash got three aces from Katie Ford and a kill from Kristin Cromer. Northfield would cut the Wabash lead to 12-11 when the Apaches ran again. With two kills from Sarah Ritter and an ace from Taylor Whitaker the Apaches would score six straight for an 18-11 lead. At 20-15 Northfield would cut the lead to three with a kill and a block from Snyder, but the Apaches were up for the challenge, holding off the Norse for a 25-21 win.

by Gary Andrews

The Wabash Apache football team picked up their first win of the season on a 37 yard Hail Mary pass as time expired to defeat North Miami 37-31 Friday.

The first two quarters were exact opposite of each other as the two teams combined for 36 points in the first quarter before a scoreless second quarter.

Wabash got off to the early lead when Chase Dirig found Ben Dillon on a 10 yard scoring strike to give the Apaches a 7-0 lead. North Miami would answer the Wabash score with the extra point failing as the Apache lead was 7-6. Wabash would add to their lead when Dirig found the end zone from 13 yards out and with the Owen Yeadon kick led 14-6. Back came North Miami to score on an 11 yard pass then cap off the quarter on a 1 yard run to lead the Apaches 22-14.

Puckett headed to Indiana Tech

by Emily Armentrout

Sarah Puckett, Wabash High School senior, signed her letter of intent on Monday, Sept. 8 to play basketball for the Indiana Tech Warriors. “I love the coaches and how it is close enough to home, but far enough away that I can stay there and be a college student. A lot of my church family works there as professors,” Puckett said of her decision to attend Indiana Tech. Puckett has been playing basketball since she was a child. At Wabash, she plays center for the Lady Apaches, but Puckett will be a three at Indiana Tech. While at Indiana Tech, Puckett will major in psychology and minor in youth ministries. Puckett has enjoyed her time as a Lady Apache and looks forward to senior year with her team and new coach, Matt Stone. “To my teammates, they rock. I love growing friendships with them and I can’t wait for senior year. I’m excited just to see how everything is going to go. I was injured this summer so I didn’t get to play with my team as much as I would have liked, but watching them grow and just get to our senior, especially with Matt, is awesome. I can’t wait to be a part of it,” said Puckett.

Squires win at Death Valley

by Gary Andrews

The football field at Tippecanoe Valley is known as Death Valley to many because of the odds of winning when you play there. The Manchester football team beat those odds Saturday as they used a balanced offensive attack and hard-hitting defense to beat the Vikings 27-20.

Manchester would grab the lead on their first possession. After holding Valley four and out the Squire offense would go to work. On second and 9 from their own 6, an arrant snap that went into the end zone was picked up by quarterback Lucas Schilling, avoiding a safety and connecting with Bailey Ness for a 17 yard gain. On third and 10, Schilling would hook up with Kellan Norwood, who had broken loose down the left sideline for a 76 yard scoring strike with 8:49 on the clock. A Zach Hill extra point made it 7-0. Valley would respond in the quarter, scoring twice and led the Squires 12-7 after one.

Valley was moving to start the second quarter when Kane Gable batted down a pass to end the drive. Manchester would take over on their own 10 and riding the backs of Jacob Casper and Evan Milam, moved the ball quickly to Viking territory. With third and 10 from the 30, Schilling found Norwood to the 10 and one play later hooked up with Casper for a scoring strike to lead 14-12 at the half.
