Bulldog girls win at Charleston scramble Effingham takes 3rd, Teutopolis finishes 8th

CHARLESTON — St. Anthony coach Ben Scherzer said Wednesday he liked the Charleston Nine-Hole Scramble as a season-opening tournament for his Bulldogs.

It showed Thursday, as St. Anthony took home the tournament title with a score of 77.

Each team paired their golfers in to teams of two, with the golfers playing a best-ball format. Each school's best two scores counted for their team score.

Charleston came in second with a 79 and Salem took third with an 80. Effingham finished fifth with an 84, and Teutopolis came in eighth with an 88.

Marian and Madison Bushue paced the Bulldogs' effort for the day, teaming up for a 35, the second-best round of the day. Charleston's Lauren Chappell and Morgan Sherwood took home the medal with a 34.

St. Anthony had two other twosomes on the day, with Abby Brown and Maddie Schuette carding a 42 and Abby Schmidt and Kyla Burton scoring a 46 on the day.

Effingham grabbed the third-place medal thanks to Morgan Wilson and Alex Brummer combining to shoot a 37 on the day, with Brummer hitting the day's closest shot to the pin on the eighth hole.

Kaylee Tonn and Hope Collier rounded out the Hearts' day with a 47.

Teutopolis was led by Casey Willenborg and Ellie Ruholl, who combined for a 42 on the day. Haley Giles and Katie Thoele shot a 46 for the Lady Shoes as well.

St. Anthony is back at it Saturday, competing in the Alton Marquette Golf Blastoff at 1:30 p.m. Teutopolis hosts Salem at 4 p.m. Monday at Cardinal Golf Course, and Effingham is off until Aug. 31 when they travel to the Rochester Invitational.

  • 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.

  • ZGard1.jpg Pitcher's duel: Gardewine leads St. Anthony over Teutopolis 1-0

    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.

  • 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.
