    GIRLS BASKETBALL

  • Lady Vandals take fourth at Mattoon

    The Vandalia High School girls basketball team placed fourth at the Mattoon Tournament last Thursday.

    Junior Amber Bruno and senior Haley Wollerman were both named to the all-tournament team. Wollerman was also selected last season.

    The Lady Vandals had a 2-3 record at the tournament, and now stand at 7-9 on the season.

  • Wrestlers get six team wins at last week's St. Thomas More New Year's Challenge

    The Vandalia wrestlers earned wins in six of nine dual meets at the St. Thomas More Challenge last Thursday and Friday.

  • Cheer Champions

    The Brownstown High School cheerleading squad recently won the cheerleading competition at the St. Elmo Holiday Tournament.

  • Flora wins Vandalia Holiday Tournament; Vandals take third

    The Flora Wolves are now eight-time champions of the Vandalia Holiday Tournament after dispatching Pana, 75-69, Thursday night to win their second title in three years.

    Tournament MVP Paul Knapp led the Wolves with 26 points during the game, and all-tournament selection Nick Painter added 17, despite having to sit on the bench with foul trouble for extended time periods.

    All-tournament selections Jared McMillen and Mitchell Beyers led Pana in scoring, with 23 and 20 points, respectively.

  • By beating Vandals, Pana to play Flora for the Vandalia Holiday Tournament championship

    It was expected that there would be plenty of upsets during this season's Vandalia Holiday Tournament, but there were just two during pool play as most teams finished pool play according to their seed.

    Third-seeded Pana earned one of those upsets, defeating No. 2 Vandalia, 63-52, Wednesday night to earn a spot in the championship game against top-seeded Flora, which beat No. 4 Wesclin, 63-49, in the final game of pool play.

    The Vandals will face No. 6 Greenville in the third-place game. The Comets upset Wesclin on the first day of the tournament.

  • Vandals 3-0 through first two days of own tourney

    The Vandals are 3-0 through the first two days of the Vandalia Holiday Tournament, and they had a showdown with Pana Wednesday night that decided who would represent Pool B in Thursday's championship game.

    The results of that game and the entire championship day schedule will be available at www.leaderunion.com by Thursday morning.

    In the first three games of the tournament, Vandalia rallied to beat Stew-Stras, 55-46, on Tuesday, while on Monday grinding out a win against St. Elmo, 48-43, and using a fast start to down Shelbyville, 57-37.

  • Vandalia grad has memorable senior season at Illinois College

    During his college career, Brock Doehring has been through a lot.

    But as he exits Illinois College, he leaves a team that is on the rise.

    This year, the IC Blueboys finished second in the Midwest Conference and qualified for the NCAA Division III playoffs for the first time in school history.

  • South Central streaky in pair of losses at Vandalia Holiday Tournament

    South Central had stretches of good play during losses to Flora and Wesclin in its first two games of the Vandalia Holiday Tournament, but until the Cougars play more consistently, wins could be hard to come by.

    Coach Rick Simmons said that there were positives in both a 55-45 loss to Flora on Monday and a 47-36 loss to Wesclin on Tuesday, but that the Cougars have yet to play well throughout a whole game.

  • Eagles fail to upset Vandalia or Pana

    For the Eagles to better their seed in the Vandalia Holiday Tournament, they would have had to had upset either second-seeded Vandalia or third-seeded Pana, but fifth-seeded St. Elmo was unable to do so.

    The Eagles did get a 67-49 win against No. 8 Stew-Stras on Monday morning, before falling to Vandalia, 48-43, that night, and Pana, 60-44, Tuesday afternoon.

    St. Elmo vs. Pana

    The Eagles led by two at halftime, but Pana used a 12-2 run in the third period to take a 10-point lead, which would be all it needed during a 60-44 win Tuesday afternoon.
