SHELBY, OH - The Shelby Whippets started the regular season on a strong note despite a later than usual start due to the football team's playoff run, as they defeated Willard and Upper Sandusky last weekend.

"We're really happy with where we're at as far as getting caught up," said Whippets head coach Troy Schwimley. "That's one of the reasons we played last weekend. We wanted a test to see where we were at and I think it was a very positive weekend for us in both games. The guys really did a lot of good things."

Shelby (2-0) rolled past Willard on opening night 82-41 and then one night later broke Upper Sandusky's 49-game regular season winning streak by a 68-59 margin.

The Whippets will have another big early-season test when they travel to Sandusky for their only game this weekend on Friday night.
