Bath product honored

BLUFFTON, Ohio - Junior guard Andrew Renner (Cairo/Bath) has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for his work on the hardwood in wins over Earlham and Hanover.

Renner averaged 20.0 points per game last week as the Beavers went 2-0 in HCAC action. He tallied a career-high tying 32 points at Earlham, marking the second time in three games that Renner bucketed 32 points. The junior’s buzzer-beater propelled the Beavers to an 82-80 double overtime victory. Renner averaged 6.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game in the pair of victories.

The Bluffton men (6-2, 2-1 HCAC) will host Franklin on Saturday at 4 p.m. following the women’s 2 p.m. clash with the Grizzlies.

Zickafoose named to All-America squad

BLUFFTON, Ohio - Senior Isaac Zickafoose (Middlebury, Ind./Northridge) has been named Second Team All-America by the American Football Coaches Association following a 2018 campaign when he earned his second HCAC Defensive Player of the Year award. It marked the fourth time in five years that a Beaver defensive end has secured the top honor in the HCAC. He is the first Bluffton football player since Ryan Aelker in 2015 to earn All-America honors.

The AFCA has selected an All-America team since 1945 and currently selects teams in all five of its divisions. What makes these teams so special is that they are the only ones chosen exclusively by the men who know the players the best — the coaches themselves.

Zickafoose led the Heartland with 11.5 sacks (3rd all-time at Bluffton) and his 17.0 TFL’s were second in the HCAC and fifth all-time for a season at Bluffton. His 80 fumble recovery yards topped the HCAC and set a new school mark, while his eight breakups were tied for sixth in the HCAC and fifth all-time at Bluffton. He was second on the team with 63 tackles and his 49 solo stops led the Beavers.

Zickafoose, a four-time First Team All-Heartland Conference selection, used his four TFL’s and two sacks in Bluffton’s 34-7 win over Defiance to take over the top spot on the career lists with 60.5 TFL’s and 35.5 sacks. He also stands at the top of Bluffton career charts with 308 TFL yards, 228 sack yards, 85 fumble recovery yards and 15 quarterback hurries. The three-time All-North Region honoree wrapped up his record-setting career with five forced fumbles (tied for 5th all-time) and 193 tackles (11th all-time).
