The game stagnated until the top of the sixth when the Trojans’ bats came to life with a 14-run barrage, led-off by Shane Sturtz’ two-RBI double. Spencer Shelton, John Collentine, Nick Spiess, Jacob Verry and Mitch Boxwell all drove in runs during the onslaught.

The agreement details how water and sewer lines will be extended to the new elementary school site at the corner of US Highway 6 and Jasper Avenue, and how the estimated cost will be split, with the City of Tiffin paying one-third and the remaining two-thirds becoming the school district’s responsibility.
