  • Vandalia Sr. Legion takes down T-Town
    A consistent offensive outpouring complemented a shut-out pitching performance from Derek Harmeier, as the Vandalia Sr. Legion team defeated Teutopolis, 9-0, last Wednesday. Post 95 scored two runs in each of the first four innings and sent at least five hitters to the plate in every inning, while Teutopolis struggled against Harmeier, who did not allow a runner to advance farther than second base. “That was what I’ve been looking for,” said coach Luke Hohlt. “Obviously, we had good pitching, and we took care of him by giving him run support.”
