Hawks soar past Leipsic

LEIPSIC, OH – A fast paced offensive attack led by two scorers in double figures led Maumee Valley Country Day past host Leipsic Saturday night 68-44.

Zeb Jackson, a 6’2 sophomore being recruited heavily by a host of schools hit for 9 of his game high 19 points in the first period of play against the Vikings on Saturday night. When he wasn’t busy dazzling the crowd with his athletic array of shots the Hawks 17.4 point per game scorer was leading the offense into the front court and handing out assists to the likes of Jaiden Woodley.

Leading 18-6 after the first period the visitors were slowed down by the Leipsic offensive attack in the second quarter as the home team got a trio of three pointers from the duo of Quintin Bruce off the bench and starter Tyler Hiegel to pull themselves within 10 at 34-24 when the time ran out on the second period.

As good as Leipsic was offensively in the second quarter, they were unable to sustain the run in the games penultimate period as they were held to just six points. MVCD for their part turned misses by their opponent into scores from six different players as they added to their lead.

Point guard Dez Jett accounted for four of his eight points in the third quarter as he utilized his ball handling skills as well as speed up and down the court to stick in a pair of fast break layups for Maumee Valley. The Hawks finished the game with 19 points off turnovers.

“I think we did a good job of breaking the initial pressure in the full court. Their overall length and quickness led to so many deflections and we just weren’t used to playing that pace. Transition points were ultimately the difference in this game. We were able to contain them in the half court but were unable to get back and make stops in transition” – Leipsic head coach Chris Kuhlman.

With the lead having swollen to 18 points after the fourth quarter the Vikings began to turn to the long ball to get back into things but were unable to hit them as a whole, finishing 6-26 for the contest. In the final eight minutes of play however the Leipsic offense netted three of their shots from deep as Cole Rieman, Kaiden Rader, and Tyler Gillespie were able to hit from deep.

Once the contest reached the final buzzer MVCD moved their season record to 9-3 with a 68-44 victory while Leipsic saw their mark fall to 5-7.

Leipsic who had not played a home game in almost exactly a full month coming into the game will be at home for a pair of contests next weekend as they will welcome Cory-Rawson to the LHS on Friday night for a Blanchard Valley Conference tilt before seeing Kalida visit for a Putnam County League battle on Saturday.

Jay sets record, scores 1000th in Rider win

LEIPSIC, OH – Derek Jay’s first and fourth quarters not only helped propel his team to a 62-47 road victory over Leipsic Tuesday night, they also helped put the St. Marys fourth year starter into rare company at St. Marys.

When the night began Jay needed to score 10 points to become the fifth player in program history to reach the 1,000 point plateau, a feat he nearly accomplished in the first quarter alone where he accounted for eight of his teams 18 markers. On the second three pointer the 2nd team All-WBL selection from a year ago collected in the opening period he overtook Garet Fledderjohann for first on the all-time Roughrider three point made list with 156 for his career.

Early in the fourth quarter it was the long ball again that helped Jay achieve a bench mark as he came off a screen and connected on a triple from straight away to run his high school total to 1,001 and received a standing ovation from the crowd in attendance and a hand shake from Leipsic mentor Chris Kuhlman.

Outside of Jay who finished with a game high 22 points on the evening the Riders saw their scoring supplemented by Jacob Grannon who scored 15 of his 19 in the third and fourth quarters and helped his squad outpace the Vikings 37-23 in the second half.

Offensively the Vikings were led in scoring by Grant Schroeder who shot 6/14 from the field and 5/7 from the free throw line for a team high 17 points.

Turnovers were a big problem in the game for the home squad as they were forced into 16 turnovers by a hounding St. Marys defense that also held them to just 18/45 shooting and 0/7 from behind the three point line.

St. Marys improves their record to 2-3 overall and will be home for the first of three straight games at the Horseshoe Friday night as they welcome New Knoxville to town.

Leipsic has dropped two out of their last three contests and sees their record rest at 4-2 overall. The Vikings will entertain Pandora Gilboa on Thursday night in Blanchard Valley Conference play for their second of four straight home contests.

Vikings down Tigers in OT

LEIPSIC, OH – Leipsic has seen two of their first three games go to an overtime period and both times the Vikings have come out winners. Friday night the Vikings won their third straight game to open the season as they defeated North Baltimore 49-45 and improved to 2-0 in Blanchard Valley Conference play.

North Baltimore junior Chase Naugle came out hot in the first quarter scoring ten of his teams 15 first quarter points, but it was the Tigers defense that did the damage to their opponents early on as their relentless pressure forced the Vikings into a dozen first half turnovers.

Trailing 15-12 at the start of the second quarter, Leipsic took to the three ball themselves just as North Baltimore had done in the first quarter as Grant Schroeder and Grant Rader each connected with a triple to send the game to the halftime break tied 23-23.

Getting to the free throw line wasn’t an issue for the home squad in the second half as they accomplished the feat 17 times in the two periods but connecting on their attempts were as the Vikings hit on just six of those attempts and once again found themselves tied after another quarter had come and gone.

Julian Hagemeyer’s foot on the line shot from straight away in the early part of the fourth quarter was ruled a three pointer at the start of the period and helped push the Tigers ahead 33-30, but the Tigers were unable to handle the Vikings pressure in the middle part of the stanza and would cough up the ball multiple times. With forcing turnovers suddenly not a problem and their opponents unable to connect on anything from the field other than Hagemeyer’s two makes from beyond the arc, North Baltimore found themselves clinging to a two point lead late in the fourth period.

Despite missing seven straight free throws in the third and early fourth quarter, Grant Schroeder would connect on a pair from the line and send the ballgame into the final seconds tied at 43-43. North Baltimore had an opportunity with just one second remaining on the clock in regulation but were unable to get off a shot as the quarter expired.

The overtime period was all Leipsic as they outscored the Tigers 6-2 behind buckets from Rader and Jordan Berger, and a pair of free throws from Schroeder.

Leipsic improves their record to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in BVC play, the Vikings will take their unbeaten record to Miller City on Saturday night as they dip their toes into Putnam County League play against the Wildcats.

North Baltimore’s record falls to 1-3 overall and 0-2 in Blanchard Valley Conference contests, the Tigers will welcome Hardin Northern to town on Saturday night looking to get back on the winning track.

Kalida, Leipsic set to rematch in District Finals

OTTAWA, OH – Kalida defeated Miller City 3-0 in the opener and Leipsic knocked out BVC champion Arlington by a 4-2 margin as both teams claimed their place in Saturday’s District Final contest.

Kalida’s Austin Swift gave up a leadoff runner to Miller City in the form of Jackson Lammers but not much more as he struck out 10 Wildcat batters and gave up just a pair of walks in going all seven innings to pick up his sixth win of the season.

Trent Siebeneck led off the bottom of first inning for the Putnam County League champions with a single and was later driven in by Trevor Maag’s RBI groundout to put his team up 1-0.

In the third inning after Swift doubled and Jeff Knueve reached on a catchers interference call to open the stanza. Both runners would come around to score in the frame when a throwing error at first sailed high on an attempt to get Noah Lambert out.

Swift finished the game by striking out the side in the 7th inning and five of the last six hitters he faced to earn Kalida a date on Saturday with the winner of the nightcap.

With the win Kalida sees their record improve to 21-1 on the season while Miller City’s come to an end at 15-6. Lammers took the loss in the game despite giving up just three runs on six hits.

WP – Austin Swift
LP – Jackson Lammers

Game two kicked off with Arlington tagging a pair of runs onto the season count for Leipsic starter Grant Rader to end the opening half inning with a 2-0 advantage on an error and a pair of doubles.

Leipsic’s first run of the contest came in the bottom of the third inning as after reaching on an error, catcher Justin Ellerbrock was brought in to score on a single by outfielder Dylan Schroeder to cut the Red Devils lead in half.

Ross Schroeder began the bottom half of the fifth inning by being hit in the head by a pitch from Arlington hurler Zach Durliat. Following the hit by pitch the Vikings added another run to tie the game as Dylan Schroeder knocked in his second run of the game on a single. Rader helped his own cause just one batter later as he was walked to put a runner at the first two bases. Both runners were moved over a base on a Jordan Berger sacrifice bunt before being brought in to take a 4-2 lead on a 2 RBI single by Robbie Laubenthal.

Despite his defense allowing the first two Arlington hitters to reach via error in the top of the seventh inning, Rader utilized a popout, a strikeout and a pop out to secure the win.

Leipsic (17-4) avenges an earlier season loss to Arlington (20-3) and moves on to a PCL rematch against Kalida on Saturday. In their regular season meeting the Wildcats survived an eight inning game and won 3-2 to clinch the conference crown for the first time since 2012, a title they shared with Leipsic.

WP – Grant Rader (7IP, 5 H, 4 K, 0 W, 2 HBP, 2 R)
LP – Zach Durliat (8-1) – 6 IP, 8 H, 4 K, 4 W, 1 HBP, 4 R

Leipsic hires new boys basketball coach

LEIPSIC, OH – Leipsic High School announced this evening they have found their next Boys Basketball coach in Chris Kuhlman.

The 33 year old Kuhlman will inherit a squad which graduated seven seniors from a team that secured their first Blanchard Valley Conference title in 20 years and were the first class in school history to win three straight sectional championships.

When Kuhlman begins his first season as head coach this fall he will be the 34th coach in program history. Kuhlman replaces Scott Maag, who resigned last month after posting a school record 130 wins against 85 losses in nine seasons that included a Division 4 State runner-up appearance in 2013.

In addition to spending the past 9 seasons as both a varsity assistant in charge of the program defense and JV head coach, Kuhlman, a graduate of Ottawa-Glandorf High School had also had a stop up north as the freshman mentor for 3 years at Toledo Central Catholic.

Returning for Leipsic this upcoming season will be incoming seniors Grant Schroeder, a 3rd team BVC selection who averaged 9.2 points per game while handing out a team high 3.0 assists per game, and 6’1 Jordan Berger who grabbed a pair of rebounds and tallied 3.5 markers a contest.

On what the future holds for Leipsic basketball this season and beyond: “We had a very nice JV program last season and our Freshmen only had one loss, that coming in the PCL Championship game with just five boys, so I’m excited about what this season and beyond holds for our program. Anytime you lose as much production as we did you need to find a way to replace it, so this summer will be an extremely important time that a lot of kids will have an opportunity to show what they can do to find minutes”, Kuhlman said.

Kalida wins in extras to take PCL lead

KALIDA, OH – It was one of those games that was a shame someone had to lose but in the end it was Leipsic who suffered their first PCL setback, 2-1 in an 8 inning affair at Holy Name Ballpark in Kalida Tuesday night.

Kalida’s Austin Swift struck out 9 in his 5.2 innings on the mound for the Wildcats but he also walked 8 Leipsic hitters before moving to the outfield and giving way on the mound to teammate Trent Siebeneck in the sixth inning.

Swift scored Kalida’s only run of the game in the first seven innings as he was knocked in by Austin Klausing in the bottom of the fourth inning to make the contest 1-0 in favor of the home squad.

With two outs in the top of the sixth inning and following a leadoff walk to Ross Schroeder the Vikings tied the game up at 1-1 with a sacrifice fly to the outfield. Siebeneck took over for Swift on the mound three batters later and with the bases loaded but got out of a jam when Cole Rieman grounded out to the first baseman Brady Laudick to end the threat.

Neither team was able to mount anything other than a runner at second base in the seventh inning and the game progressed into extra innings where Leipsic’s Grant Rader helped his own case for a pitching victory with a single and stolen base to open the frame. Rader would be driven in following a pair of outs in the inning by the DH Ross Laubenthal to put Leipsic ahead 2-1 marching to the final half inning.

Kalida found themselves down to their final strike and out in the bottom of the eighth inning when Swift’s hard grounder to Schroeder at second base took just enough of a bounce away to allow the future Indiana Wesleyan hurler to reach base.

Catcher Jeff Knueve’s hard hit ball to third base stymied Devin Heigel just enough for throw to be off line across the diamond and give Kalida a pair of runners on with two outs.

Future Toledo Rocket Brady Laudick laced a 1-0 offering from Rader to the left side and into the infield bring in both Swift from second base to tie the game and pinch runner Grant Laudick for the winning run for Kalida.

Trent Siebeneck took the win for the Wildcats, who up their record to 13-1 on the season and take over sole possession of first in the Putnam County League at 4-0. In 2.1 innings Siebeneck gave up the only two hits of the contest for his team and struck out a batter while walking just one as well.

Despite a nice performance in his eight innings on the mound Grant Rader takes the loss for Leipsic (9-4) who suffer their first PCL loss of the year and sit tied for second place at 4-1 in league play.

Kalida is back in action at home on Wednesday at 5pm as they take on league foe Pandora Gilboa while Leipsic travels to take on Blanchard Valley Conference play against Vanlue.

Leipsic’s Maag resigns

LEIPSIC, OH – When the 2016-17 season kicks off this fall the Leipsic Vikings boys basketball program will have a new head coach at its helm.

Scott Maag, the winningest coach in program history announced Wednesday night to his team that he had submitted his resignation to the school for the position of head coach he has held since replacing Kevin Brandt after the 2007 season that saw the Vikings finish at 0-21.

Maag, who teaches in the Ottawa Glandorf school system amassed a record of 130-85, including 20-5 this past season in which he was tabbed as the Blanchard Valley Conference Coach of the Year in part for helping Leipsic to a share of the league championship, their first since 1997.

During the 2013 season Maag led the Vikings to their first Regional Championship as well as into the Division 4 State Championship game where the Vikings were defeated by Cleveland Villa-Angela St. Joseph 87-63. Despite the loss the Vikings finished the 2013 season with a school record 25 wins.

Whoever replaces Maag will be the 33rd coach of a boys program that traces their roots back one hundred years to 1916 and helm a squad that lost seven seniors, including top scorer and Putnam County League Player of the Year Jordan Brown.

Vikings down Big Green in 100th meeting

OTTOVILLE, OH – The 100th all-time meeting between Ottoville and Leipsic went in the win column for the Vikings Saturday night as they outscored the Big Green 20-7 in the final quarter to win 63-50.

Minutes into the first quarter the Vikings jumped out to a quick 10-2 lead over the home squad but saw the contest come to a halt momentarily with 5:09 remaining when Ottoville Sophomore Logan Kemper was attended to and carried off the L.W. Heckman Gymnasium floor with a leg injury. Kemper would not return to the game after being carried to the lockerroom.

Five players tossed in 20 points for the Vikings in the first period led by 7 from Jordan Brown and led 20-12 at the quarter buzzer.

Trailing 31-28 with just seconds remaining before the halftime break the Big Green’s Nick Moorman connected on a jumper from the right wing and tied the game at 31 as the ball fell through the net at the buzzer.

Moorman and Ryan Bendele were the only two players to score for the home team in the third quarter but accounted for 12 markers including a pair of triples by Bendele to tie the game at 43 all after three quarters.

Leipsic committed seven turnovers in the game but none in the second half while their opponents were forced into eight second half turnovers and 14 overall. With a strong defensive presence that allowed them to create in transition the Vikings took control in the fourth quarter and were able to get themselves to the free throw line as well.

In the last period the Vikings connected on 7 of 14 tosses from the charity stripe and held the Big Green to just a trio of buckets from the floor from Bendele, Moorman, and Dustin Trenkamp in order to preserve the games final score of 63-50.
