St. Elmo senior Garrett Bartels had a hit in each of the first two games of the National Trail Conference Tournament, including one last Friday during an eight-inning, 2-1 win against Beecher City.

Senior Connor Beasley (6-3) struck out 11 batters over eight innings to earn the win, and Dalton Parks doubled and scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth.

On Monday, the Eagles traveled to St. Anthony and lost, 9-1.

Bartels and Beasley each had one hit in the game, and junior Levi Maxey took the loss. St. Elmo (8-10) played Windsor in the consolation bracket on Wednesday.
