  • Sports cancellations and schedule changes -- Thursday, April 28

    Vandalia vs. Christ Our Rock baseball has been canceled for today. It will be made up tomorrow.

    On May 6, Vandalia will makeup its game with Pana at home, following a scheduled game against Litchfield. Because of that, the May 5 game against Mater Dei has been canceled.

    The St. Elmo baseball game scheduled at Beecher City on Thursday has been canceled.

  • Rain soaks Vandalia at poor time for ball teams

    The continuous rainy weather that recently soaked the region came at a bad time for the Vandalia High School baseball and softball teams, canceling a combined six games at a crucial juncture in the season.

    The baseball team has lost six of its past seven games, and coach Luke Hohlt considers that stretch more as bad luck than a slump, but still would have preferred to play the missed games to try to break out of it.

  • Boys and girls track teams learned some things at Teutopolis

    TEUTOPOLIS – Coaches for both the Vandalia High School boys and girls track teams said many of their athletes can take their experiences from a meet at Teutopolis on Tuesday and learn from them.

    After finishing her leg of the 4X400-meter relay, senior Christina Pennington worked her way off the track to the infield to find her coach. She was visibly winded and said, “It hurts.”

    Veteran coach Mike Travelstead had a simple answer to that.

  • The College Report: Earnest named All-American

    Another one for the trophy case.

    For Jessica Earnest, a Vandalia grad and Vanderbilt University bowler, it was another certificate for her wall. But, this one might mean more than most.

    The Vanderbilt sophomore was named to the National Ten Pin Coaches Association All-American team. Earnest was named to the second team and was one of three Vanderbilt bowlers selected.

  • Newsom has another walk-off for Lady Vandals

    Whitney Newsom has a flair for the dramatic.

    For some reason, the Vandalia senior always seems to find a bat in her hands with the game on the line.

    Not that anyone cares, since she seems to deliver every time.

    Such was the case last Wednesday when her sacrifice fly in the bottom of the eighth inning brought home sophomore Morgan Whightsil to give the Lady Vandals a 3-2 comeback win against Greenville.

    That was Newsom's second walk-off at-bat of the season.
