    The Brownstown resident and Vandalia Community High School graduate posted her entry receipt for the Ford Ironman in Louisville, Ky., where she would see it every day to remind her that the training would someday pay off.
    “The last month, I had really been getting burnt out on training,” Schuab said.
    “I was really ready for it to be here and ready to do it.”

    Patoka improved to 3-0 on the season with the win, which came on an RBI single by Dylan Adams in the fifth inning.
    Adams’s single was one of four hits in that inning by the Warriors, who took advantage of a walk, a hit batsman and an error.
    Reid McKinley got the win, and Zach Thompson picked up a save.

  • Bell's FG gives Vandals win...

    In a game in which Vandalia and East Alton-Wood River evenly exchanged touchdowns, it was two field goal attempts that made the difference.

    The second, by Vandalia’s Daniel Bell from 26 yards out, sailed through the center of the crossbars with about 4 seconds left in the game to give the Vandals a 24-21 win.
