Manchester and Northfield played a classic in the 2015 Wabash County Tournament championship game on December 30 with Chase Fierstos knocking down a jumper at the buzzer to give the Squires the win.
For three quarters last Thursday, it appeared that the county rivals were on their way to another heart-pounding finish. Manchester led 49-48 with 6:42 left in the game, but a 10-2 run gave them breathing room and led to a 65-55 win.
Fierstos also made his presence felt in this game, not only leading all scorers with 36 points, but scored his 1,000th career point midway in the third quarter.

Northfield High School senior baseball athlete Remington Monce signed his letter of intent with Jackson College on Tuesday, Feb. 2, and took another step toward fulfilling his dream.
A third baseman and pitcher for the Norsemen, Monce said he’s excited to join the Michigan college’s team on the field.
“It’s been a dream of mine since I was little and this is one huge day in my life, one of the best days,” he told The Paper of Wabash County after the signing.
Monce has dreamed of playing in college since his grandmother, Dorothy M. “Dot” Monce, interested him in the sport as a child.

Wabash County Hoops on Wabash WebTV
By Bill Barrows
After a very busy week with the girls’ sectional with boys’ regular season games mixed in, we now concentrate on the original source of Hoosier Hysteria. And it’s more like a 1970’s style schedule this week, preparation time early and games late in the week.
On Thursday one lone game, as Southwood travels to Madison-Grant. On Friday, Manchester travels to Peru and Rochester entertains Wabash. Saturday is a mixed bag of action. Lewis Cass will be at Wabash for a day game after a night game for the Apaches. And that evening, Northfield is at Bluffton and Whitko will be at Manchester where the Wabash WebTV crew will bring you that game.
