Mason Gams got the first goal against Marcus Whitman Thursday afternoon but the Newark boys’s soccer team couldn’t hold on, losing 2-1 in what coach Sandy Bueso described “a good competitive game all-around. Whitman has a strong team and they were very good at challenging us for the ball, but we were just not in the game in te second half.

Gams scored in the on a feed from Derick White, with Whitman following with a tying goal by Gonzalvo Podgaezky and a late goal by Jim DiMartino.

Bueso, who is installing a new soccer system, admitted it’s a big learning curve for the kids, but he sees improvement every day. “We’re catghing on to what we’re aiming for; it’s just a matter of getting over the hump and doing what we’re capable of. If they could just see what I see…”

The Reds are 1-3 (1-1 league).


A young team getting experience and taking some knocks along the way is the Lady Red volleyball squad. Newark lost to Waterloo on Tuesday, 3-0, but the contest was close (15-25, 20-25, 18-25).

Yesterday, the Reds dropped a 3-0 match to Wayne (18-25, 23-25 and 13-25).

“We played a strong game against Wayne, one of the contending teams in Class B,” said Newark coach Matt May. “Our strong service game kept us in the match all night long – we served 14 aces.”


One team that is surging is girls’ tennis – they won their third-straight home courty victory Thursday night, handling North Rose-Wolcott, 5-0. Allison Wilck remained undefeated at first singles, winning 16 games in her three-set victory.

Katelyn Zonneville had her third win on the home courts at second singles (6-1, 6-1).

Meghann Dygert had the most dominating match of the evening, winning 12 straight games at third singles (6-0, 6-0).

In doubles, Elizabeth Erway and Lindsay Ochs paired up again to win (6-3, 6-1) in first doubles, and Kelsey Rossignol and Kelly Eberle took second doubles (6-1, 6-0).


The girls started their dual-meet season on Thursday afternoon, tossing North Rose-Wolcott into the deep end of the pool, 126-49.

Winners for the Lady Reds were: Chelsea Power (200 Free/2:09.84 and 100 Free/58.49), Krista VerMeersch (200 IM/2:41.41 and 100 Breaststroke/1:19.73)), Brittany Robinson (40 Free/29.97), Danielle Peets (100 Butterfly/1:17.18), Hannah Marvin (100 Back/1:13.83). Ciera Lancaster won the diving (80.85), and Newark took the 200 Medley Relay (2:12.25) and the 200 Free Relay (1:56.95).

“It was a great meet,” said coach Danielle Ohlson. “Many best times for rookies and returning swimmers. It was a great start to the dual-meet season.”
