The Lady Senator softball team went toe to toe with one of the conference leaders, Chatham Glenwood, but fell 8-5. It was a great effort all the way around. Kerrin Wantland and Veronica Brown led the way with multiple hits. Maddie Cleary pitched a great game on the loss. Tonight we will recognize the 3 seniors who have committed 4 years to the program: Sophie Burnett, Kerrin Wantland and Veronica Brown, at 4:30 at UIS.

The baseball team won a big one last night in a 4 to 2 win over Chatham and their highly acclaimed pitcher. Damian Pierce and Trevor Minder combined to pitch their tails off in holding the Titans to just two runs while Austin Alderman helped get the offense going along with help from Jacks Hyde, Tanner Eddings, and Jimmy Hollahan. Alderman had 2 hits plus a couple of huge hustle plays that made a huge difference. Hyde and Eddings got the ball rolling with a key walk and single for Hollahan to knock in a key run right before Alderman did the same to put the Senators ahead for good. Next up is a rematch today in Chatham at 4:30.

Way to go girls soccer, they made it to regionals with a 7-0 win last night.
