  • Senior Spotlight: Kase the...

    ST. ELMO – A grand slam earlier this season has already given St. Elmo senior Kase Stolte something from his senior year that he will always remember.

    “Me and Ben Sperry have a thing about who is leading the team in home runs, so it was a good feeling that I tied him and hit in three other guys,” Stolte said.

    Through Tuesday, they were still tied with two apiece.

    But, if it’s up to Stolte, the grand slam and contest will be just two of many memories created this season.

  • Lady Vandals top Teutopolis with...

    As Whitney Newsom led off the bottom of the seventh inning against Teutopolis last Thursday, Vandalia coach Brian Buscher was scrambling to find a pinch runner in the event Newsom got on base.

    “I sent (sophomore) Amber Bruno to get two JV girls, because I thought, ‘All right, she’s going to get a base hit, and I have to decide whether or not to sub in a runner,’” Buscher said.

    “I got Kylie Sellers to run for her and got Lauren Wasmuth to sub in to play third. I was stressing out about that.”

  • Vandals shut out Carlinville in...

    Sophomore Leyton Godoyo was filthy after he stole two bases and dove head-first into home during the fifth inning last Friday against Carlinville.

    But he was all smiles, because his run gave the Vandals a 10-0 win in the South Central Conference season-opener last Friday.

    Good jumps allowed Godoyo to steal both second and third base, and he advanced home after the catcher’s throw to third sailed into left field.
