Newton makes LIC title

NEWTON — The Lady Eagles will move on the Little Illini Conference title game following their 46-42 overtime win against Olney Tuesday night.

It took a herculean fourth quarter to even force overtime, as Olney led 32-23 going into the final frame. Newton held them to just four points and forced overtime, where Andrea Cartright, Morgan Swingler and Carly Niebrugge led them past the Tigers.

It was Newton's second straight OT win in the LIC tourney.

Swingler scored 19 points to lead the Lady Eagles, and Cartright added 12 points.

Newton plays for the LIC title Thursday night against Marshall.

  • 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.

    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.
