Local roundup

EFFINGHAM — Jackson Wendling was medalist, and was joined on the all-Apollo Conference team by teammate Anthony Lechman, as the Hearts finished third Friday in the conference meet at Red Tail Run Golf Club in Decatur.

Wendling shot a 3-over 75, two strokes better than Christian Crabill (Mt. Zion) and Cordy Horn (Charleston), who shared second at 77.

Lechman finished at 79, good for sixth place.

“Jackson Wendling played a great round of golf. He has worked very hard and I am proud of his effort,” Hearts coach Jeff Schafer said. “But the rest of the day was disappointing.

“We had a great opportunity to win this and we didn’t get it done. We have some kids that are really disappointed that they didn’t perform better.”

Charleston had four players shoot 80 or better to win the team title with 315. Mt. Zion was second at 321, and the Hearts third at 325.

Jake Linders had an 83, and Anthony Barrett an 88 for Effingham.

  • 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.

  • Green.jpg Green settling into Whitecaps rotation

    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.

  • Vonderheide.jpg Windsor/Stew-Stras combines for five-inning no-hitter

    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.

  • 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.
