  • Bruno scores 1,000th point on 3-...

    HIGHLAND – Taking 100 or more extra shots every weekday since the summer has paid off for Amber Bruno.

    The Vandalia junior lifted a 3-pointer with about a minute left in the first quarter of Tuesday’s game at the Highland Tournament to score her 1,000th career point, becoming the 10th female in school history to reach the mark.

    Vandalia senior Haley Wollerman needs three more points to reach 1,000 for her career. Those points should be scored on Monday, during a home game against Litchfield.

    With an “emotional” team win at Litchfield last Thursday, the Vandalia wrestlers secured a perfect South Central Conference record, and the Vandals followed that with a split at a home tri-meet on Saturday.

    Freshman Ryne Lispey – who earned the clinching pin against Litchfield, during a 33-31 victory – had a chance to secure another team win against Monticello on Saturday, but he was pinned by a more-experience opponent.

    HIGHLAND – The Lady Vandals were unable to earn a win at the Highland Tournament and will not play again until next Monday.

    Hopefully, the time off will give them a chance to figure out their new offense.

    Belleville West found many open shots and grabbed plenty of offensive rebounds during a 66-40 win against Vandalia on Tuesday.

  • Vandals take two tough losses in...

    Teutopolis scored 51 points in the first half en route to an 81-44 rout of Vandalia on Tuesday.

    Senior Dathan Berning paced the Vandals with 14 points, but a consistent outpouring of offense from the Wooden Shoes could not be overcome.

    The loss was the second straight for the Vandals, who are now 15-5 on the season.

    Their next game is on Tuesday against Hillsboro.

  • Milestone Watch: Vandalia girls...

    Barring anything unusual, two Lady Vandals should score their 1,000th career point during the Highland Tournament, with games assured on Saturday and next Tuesday.

    Senior Haley Wollerman and junior Amber Bruno are both within reach of the mark, and will surpass the milestone if they score at or near their season averages.

    The two guards have been standout players for the Lady Vandals the past two seasons, and coach Michelle McNary said both players deserve to reach the milestone.
