FINDLAY — The Elida boys basketball team was trying to do something that is very difficult to do in this day and age of parity: beat the same team three times in the same season.

This time, it was in the Division II District finals before a raucous, standing-room-only crowd at Liberty-Benton High School outside of Findlay.

Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, the Bath Wildcats turned the tables and eked out a 53-51 triumph.

Elida had won in its own Tip-Off Classic 54-46 to start the season and in the WBL matchup 66-62 at home Feb. 14.

Bath moves on to play Defiance at 8 p.m. Thursday in the regional semifinals.

Hope springs eternal — in spring football?

Spring practice has always been a big deal in the past in college football.

It’s always intriguing to see what Local State University has in store for the upcoming season with the veterans returning — who has stepped up in off-season workouts; has gotten bigger, faster, stronger; has developed in the scheme of things; is changing positions; etc., etc., etc. — and those fighting to replace departed stars that were either backups last fall, saw limited action, simply dressed or were even red-shirted or gray-shirted and how much they have grown and improved — or not.

Sometimes, things don’t pan out for whatever reason: a player loses heart or his love of the game, simply doesn’t want to put in the time or whatever.
