Wooden Shoes win XC sectional

SPRINGFIELD — Led by Jarrett Hardiek’s winning time of 11:14, the Teutopolis Wooden Shoes won the Springfield Christ the King IESA Sectional cross country meet.

Teutopolis had little trouble winning with 39 points, followed by Christ the King with 70 and Liberty with 72. Those three teams advance to the state meet Saturday in Normal.

St. Anthony was just barely on the outside looking in, finishing with 75 points and three points outside of a trip to state.

For the Shoes, Jacob Schmidt’s time of 11:51 was good for sixth and Ian Copple took ninth with a time of 12:07.

St. Anthony’s Clayton Helmink took fifth with a time of 11:42, while teammate Dylan Guy finished 13th in 12:18. Both are headed to state as individuals, according to IESA’s website and their tentative state meet qualifiers list.

In addition to the Shoes’ team and Helmink and Guy, Cumberland’s Kort McClellan and Blake Sutherland are headed to state as well.

On the girls’ side, St. Anthony’s Ava Wegman and Cumberland’s Morgan Gerhardt are the only local runners to advance to the IESA state meet.

    But the seed was planted when the senior righty first attended the Sho-Me Baseball Camp as a 13-year-old, establishing a relationship with the college and the coaching staff over the years.
    He made it official last month, inking his letter of commitment to play for the NAIA school in Point Lookout, Mo.

  • Winn.jpg Indians edge Bombers 4-2

    Malachi Maxey was in the right place at the right time to maintain Brownstown/St. Elmo's 2-0 lead for, at least, one more inning.
    His leaping catch on a line drive to second base, started a single-handed double play to end the top of the fifth inning and an Altamont threat with runners at first and second.
