Lady Shoes stay in fourth

EFFINGHAM — The Teutopolis Lady Shoes are the only area team to receive an AP Top 10 ranking after the latest set of polls were released Wednesday.

Teutopolis remained in fourth place in Class 2A after moving to 15-3 last week wins over Flora and St. Joseph-Ogden.

Their counterparts on the boys' side slid out of the poll, after Teutopolis lost twice last week to Mattoon and St. Joseph-Ogden. The Wooden Shoes (10-5) received 10 votes in Class 2A for an unofficial 13th.

Newton also joined them in the 2A poll with one vote, for an unofficial 24th. The Altamont boys received one vote in Class 1A, tied for an unofficial 25th.

Despite moving to 20-0 Tuesday night, the Effingham girls still are unranked, receiving just one vote in Class 3A. That put the Lady Hearts into an unofficial 19th place, tied with two other teams.

Lastly, in Class 1A, Cowden-Herrick/Beecher City's Lady Hornerts received one vote, despite a 2-13 record this season.

  • 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.

    Makayla Walsh played the role of starter and stopper.
