The Senator Baseball Team lost a tough one last night by the score of 2 to 1 to the Tornadoes of Taylorville. Neel Patel threw a masterful game on the hill, allowing only 2 earned runs in 7 innings while giving up 6 hits and striking out 5 and walking nobody. It was all for naught, as SHS could not string together its hits. Will England and Myles Peralta did manage two hits apiece, but it was not enough. The rematch is scheduled for today at 4:30 in Taylorville.

The softball team rallied for three runs in the bottom of the sixth, but alas, it wasn't enough, as they were toppled by the Crimsons of Jacksonville 5 - 3 last night at UIS. Liz Woodruff, Kristin Coniglio, Emma Anderson and Kimber Griffin all singled for the Senators. Kimber struck out 13 and allowed only two earned runs, but still suffered her eleventh loss of the season. Today, Springfield heads over to Lanphier's den to take on the Lions.

The girls soccer team opened the playoffs last night with an impressive 8 - 0 victory over Lincoln. Sophmore Kelsey Slaughter led the scoring with three goals while senior Sarah Russell added two. Goalie Amy Allison made several nice saves for the shutout. The team will play Sacred Heart-Griffin Friday night at 5 for the regional championship.
