Lady Shoes fall two spots in polls

T-Town boys still eighth

EFFINGHAM — The latest AP high school basketball polls were released Tuesday and both Teutopolis teams remained the only top 10 teams in the area.

The Teutopolis (12-3) girls dropped two spots in Class 2A, to No. 4, after a weekend loss to second-ranked Breese Central (19-0) on Saturday. Nashville (16-1) jumped ahead of the Shoes, to the third spot.

Teutopolis' boys team (10-3) stayed at No. 8 in the Class 2A polls. Newton received three votes in the 2A, which was 20 off of 10th ranked Bloomington Central Catholic (11-3).

St. Anthony boys received two votes in Class 1A, 16 off of 10th ranked Mooseheart (8-2).

The Effingham girls team (16-0) received six votes this week in Class 3A, which put them in a tie for 12th with Champaign Centennial. The six votes pitted them one vote shy of 11th ranked Richwoods and 14 short of 10th ranked Burlington Central.

  • 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.
