Wooden Shoes sweep Flaming Hearts, Movin' Maroons

ALTAMONT — Teutopolis, Effingham and Dieterich ran among nature at Ballard Nature Center Thursday, and the Wooden Shoes looked right at home as they swept the boys' and girls' meets.

The Wooden Shoes won the boys race with 23 points, topping Effingham's 39 and Dieterich's 81, and the girls' 24 bested the Flaming Hearts' 32. The effort on the boys' side was paced by Lucas Probst, who won the race with a time of 17:37. Effingham grabbed the next two finishers in Jacob Donaldson (18:21) and Josh McCammon (18:26), but were no match for the Shoes. Teutopolis rounded out its day with the next four runners to cross the finish line: Scott Isley (18:37), Zach Mette (18:41), Nick Bierman (18:52) and Logan Probst (18:54). Gary Dameron came in next for Effingham in 19:20, while Leighton Lark finished in 19:56 and Kennan Mahaffey finished in an even 20:00. Dieterich was led by Dalton Flach in 19:40. Josh Kidd finished in 20:15, Reed Higgs ran the course in 20:42, Josh Campbell came in in 20:52 and Wyatt Abbott finished in 21:23. The girls race was much closer with a sprint to the finish line between Teutopolis' Kadi Borries and Effingham's Haley Fatheree. It was Borries who crossed first in 23:22, three seconds ahead of Fatheree's 23:25. Emma Repking (23:31), Lauren Jansen (24:13) and Morgan Deters (24:20) wrapped things up for Teutopolis, finishing third, fourth and fifth, respectively. Lyndsey Jansen rounded out the Shoes' day in 25:41. Jenna Bingham finished in 24:39 for Effingham, followed by Shayna Phillips's 24:50, Jamie Swan's 25:15 and Jaclyn Steppe's 25:19.Dieterich only had two girls runners, as Ashley Faught finished in 29:36 and Melody Mahnke ran a 30:33.

  • Altamont downs Charleston 6-2

    At least it’s the last year of the Ohnesorges for Altamont’s opponents.
    That’s the sister duo of Madison and Lauren that have been top athletes at Altamont High School. The pair produced once again in a 6-2 win over Charleston at Karch Field.

  • ZGard1.jpg Pitcher's duel: Gardewine leads St. Anthony over Teutopolis 1-0

    Zach Gardewine gripped the game ball tightly in his right hand and smiled.
    It’s not every day a pitcher shuts out the loaded Teutopolis lineup and he knew it. Gardewine became the first player to blank the Wooden Shoes, in St. Anthony’s 1-0 win on Tuesday, since Dieterich duo Tanner Traub and Jake Bohnhoff on March 22, 2013.

  • 4-22Ziegler.jpg Ziegler's choice an easy one

    Lake Land College’s Grace Ziegler had a choice after her two years playing were up.
    The Altamont alumna basically whittled her options down to this: continue to play basketball collegiately at a four-year institution, or transfer to a four-year institution to have a traditional college student experience.

  • Vonderheid.jpg Vonderheide, W/SS win at Charleston 12-0

    Christian Vonderheide had the luxury of choosing which was better.
    It was either the grand slam, or a complete game shutout thrown by the right hander.
    “They are both pretty equal,” Vonderheide said. “Pitching is more of my thing. The grand slam I got lucky. I swung hard, and I was lucky enough for it to go over the fence."
    The win could be more important as Windsor/Stew-Stras pounded a 12-0 win over Charleston at CHS Field.

  • czachorskimug.jpg Czachorski: Time to catch Cup fever

    I woke up early Friday morning and did something I never do these days -- I flipped on SportsCenter.
    It was the top of the 7 a.m. hour, and unshockingly, ESPN led with discussion of the playoffs.
    What left me flabbergasted was they were leading with the NHL playoffs, as I was truly unaware ESPN remembered that hockey was a sport.

  • Cutts.jpg Cutts carries Cumberland to 4-3 win

    His first three hits were no doubters, but Blayke Cutts’ fourth hit on Thursday was a high bouncer over the glove of Olney third baseman Peyton Billington to win in a walk-off.

  • McNamee.jpg McNamee: Questions about EIU's Jimmy G

    The typical phrase used in situations like this, I think, is: “He shows potential.” I may not have believed anything I was saying, but at least he was in line to be a four-year starter; at least, he had that.
