Hearts win tri-meet at Mount Vernon

MT. VERNON — The Lady Hearts track team braved the windy conditions and turned in a first-place performance at a tri-meet at Mount Vernon on Monday. Effingham scored 75 points, good enough for 24 more than the host team and 45 points ahead of third-place Salem.

There were a number of Lady Hearts that came in first in their respective events, starting with Kelly Keitel. Keitel won the high jump with her 4 foot 8 inch performance, and placed second in the 3200 meters with a time of 16:21.

Kristina Rivera also turned in a pair of top-two finishes. She won the 100-meter dash in a time of 14.01, and had a long jump of 14 feet 5 inches to finish just short of first. Shayna Phillips took home top honors in the 800 with a 2:40 showing, with Jenna

Bingham easily winning the 1600 at 5:57. Bingham’s time was more than twenty seconds faster than the closest competitor.

Jaclyn Steppe outpaced her competitors in the 300-meter hurdles, finishing nearly four seconds faster than any other runner at 51.18 In the 100-meter hurdles, Steppe placed second with a time of 21.20.

If the individual performances weren’t enough, Effingham dominated the relays as well. The Lady Hearts took home top finishes in the 4x100, 4x200 and 4x800, narrowly missing out on a sweep in the 4x400. Mount Vernon took home top honors in the 4x400 with a time of 4:57, five seconds better than the Lady Hearts.

Effingham has another tri-meet today, taking on St. Anthony and Teutopolis in Teutopolis.

    The frustrations from a tough 7-6 loss by North Clay to South Central Tuesday were relieved on the field Wednesday, as the Cardinals blasted the Sandoval Blackhawks 16-0 in five innings.

  • czachorskimug.jpg Czachorski: My own field of dreams

    A few weeks ago, I sat behind the backstop at Evergreen Park, watching St. Anthony and South Central play baseball and taking photos when I overheard a conversation.
    It was a few seven- or eight-year-old kids, just talking about the game in front of them, nearly gushing over some of their favorite players on St. Anthony.

    Since inking his pro deal, Effingham and University of Louisville alum Chad Green has donned a number of different jerseys.
    In just over a year, Green's played for the Gulf Coast League Tigers, the Lakeland Flying Tigers, the West Michigan Whitecaps and, even just for a day or two, the Detroit Tigers.

    The second inning was good to Windsor/Stew-Stras again.
    The Blue Devils scored 17 runs in the second inning of their 19-7 win against Cumberland on Tuesday, then scored 10 more in the same frame of a 16-0 rout of Ramsey on Wednesday, all while being shut out in the first inning of both games.

  • 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.

    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.
