Wabash’s varsity soccer team defeated Fort Wayne Blackhawk Christian (7-8-3) on Saturday afternoon with a final of 1-0 for the Apaches’ first-ever sectional championship.

Coming into sectional play, the Apaches had yet to score a goal in tournament play let alone when getting past the first round so for Wabash head coach Bill Benysh, the win was well worth the wait.
