Central Catholic defeats Bowling Green; Whitmer shoots past Yellow Jackets

Four games into the season, Central Catholic basketball coach Jim Welling thinks his Irish are still a bit rusty because of the late start they got after the football team won a state championship.

If that is truly the case, future opponents should take warning.

The Irish had four players score in double figures while pushing their record to 4-0 Thursday night with a convincing 75-45 nonleague home victory over visiting Bowling Green.



Whitmer shoots past Perrysburg for win

Lost in the excitement of Whitmer’s historic 2011-12 basketball season was a revelation that belies conventions of how successful teams are built.

The Panthers could not shoot.

Buoyed by stout interior play that featured two future college football lineman, and an ample supply of suffocating defense everywhere else, the need to knock down deep shots was not a prerequisite for the Panthers advancing to the state title game. This year’s squad, which improved to 6-1 on Thursday in a 55-49 home win over Perrysburg, is constructed quite differently.
