Girls' tennis: BHS attempts to break school record for consecutive wins

By Ron Geiser

This week is a big one for the Bluffton High School girls tennis team as it attempts to break the school record for consecutive wins.

Coach Tony Carmack"s 2002 team won its first nine matches on its way to a 15-4 season mark, the best in Pirate tennis history. Last week coach Jesse Sensenig's team matched that streak with a shutout win over Fostoria, now posting a 9-1 record.


Bluffton fails to slow Crestview's rushing attack, lose first game of season

By Bryan Kress
The banner read "Knock Out The Knights" and despite forcing 4 turnovers, Bluffton were the ones who ended up being knocked out.

Bluffton could not capitalize on any Crestview turnover, and gave up a total of 236 yards on the ground. That kind of play is a recipe for failure for any team that suits up.
