We only struck out once, but we swung and hit balls that we should have not have and that resulted in not hitting the ball hard. Then when we did hit the ball hard, we hit it right at them. When we got runners on base we were able to steal and get into to scoring position but then we couldn't get that hit to score the run.

"Great season though for SG Softball! 13-11 is really good! Second highest win total in a season in school history (15 - two years ago). This team overachieved and had some really good games throughout the season!

"Thanks to everyone who has covered our team and the sport this year, we really appreciate it!"

"Nice comeback win tonight!" Coach Dennis Kreitler exclaimed. "They jumped out to an early lead (3-0) in the first when their first four hitters hit the ball hard for doubles and singles. After that, Megan Huck and catcher Adrienne Webery did a really nice job of spotting pitches the rest of the game. We battled back and kept it close and in the bottom of the 7th we had the top up and they came through!

"Two hit night for Ashley Viox (2RBI's), Makayla Bader, and Regan Zerwig (3RBI's). Regan is really starting to find her swing and she's gaining more confidence right now. Big two out bottom of the 7th 2 RBI walk off double for the win!!!

"This was a much needed game for us to play before going into district play. I thought we were kind of stale from the beginning of today's game at first. Bats were slow and it looked like our game speed was slow too! Playing this game would at least keep us sharp going into to district play rather than not playing. For us, playing more games is the key. On a good note, 13 wins is really an amazing accomplishment. That's second all-time in wins for this program! We are looking forward to playing in districts on Thursday at 6pm vs the winner of Sikeston or Doniphan."

Valle Catholic shut down a powerful Potosi offense Friday night in a 41-0 romp over the class 3 Trojans.

A week earlier against PHS the Potosi offense exploded for nearly 400 yards but they managed only 55 yards on their home field against the Warriors.

It was only the Trojans second loss of the season and both losses have been to undefeated teams. Potosi fell 36-3 two weeks ago to rival Central of Park Hills. The Rebels are ranked third in class 3. Valle is ranked #1 in class one. The win over the Trojans was the 22nd straight win for the Warriors over the past two seasons.

Valle totaled 11 tackles behind the line of scrimmage Friday night. Defensive end Jacob Trautman had 2 quarterback sacks and 2 of his 10 tackles were for losses behind the line.

Koltn Schilly more than filled in for Stuppy. Schilly, a wide receiver, moved into the backfield and scored three rushing TDs. He ran for 138 yards on 10 carries.

The Warriors scored on three of their first four possessions.

Schilly's 10-yard TD run gave Valle a 7-0 lead with 9:49 in the 1st. He scored on a 21-yard run with 4:49 in the 1st as Valle went up 14-0.

The senior burst for a 47 yard TD run with 9:45 in the second and the Warriors led 21-0.

Following a Jarrod Davis interception Valle went 20 yards for another score. Quarterback Connor Basler's 1-yard TD run gave Valle a 28-0 lead at the half.

Sophomore running back Tristan Huck added a pair of second half scores. His 9-yard TD run in the third made it 35-0 and turned on the continuous clock. He scored again on a short run set up by a Nick Oberle interception. It was 41-0 with 3:55 in the third.

Basler was 8 of 12 for 106 yards in the air.

The Trojans leading rusher, Blaine Riddle, was held to only 26 yards on the night.

Valle (7-0) will entertain Herculaeum this Friday night. The Blackcats are 5-2 on the year. They have wins over Scott City (26-22), Jefferson (35-21), St. Vincent (28-14), Grandview (33-0) and Crystal City (34-14). Their losses came to Lutheran South (35-7) and St. Pius (28-20).

Good effort by the ladies today! Clutch hitting up and down the line-up for us! Megan Huck threw very well tonight pitching every inning of both games. The last time we faced Newberry we strikeout in double digits, tonight only 3 times. That's putting the ball in play and putting pressure on their defense to make plays and they had a tough time doing that tonight. And here we are again in another championship game for the second time in three years (note we did not play in last year’s conference tourney because of the death of Senior Dennis Flieg). Farmington will be a tough foe as always and we will be ready to play!

Park Hills went up 19-6 on a Jake Bridges 48-yard TD pass to Mayberry.

With 2:54 before the half a 15-yard TD run by Mayberry made it 25-6.

With time running out in the half Bridges threw a 26-yard TD pass and the Rebels took a 32-6 lead into the break.

The win gave Park Hills a 3-0 MAFC White record and they can repeat as undefeated conference champions with a win over Fredericktown this week.

PHS (2-4) is coming off a 27-8 loss at Potosi. The Pirates opened their season with wins over Sumner (13-12) and St. Pius (23-17) before losing their next four.

They were beaten by Park Hills (42-12), Fredericktown (33-6), Affton (49-16) and Potosi.

Last year Ste. Gen blanked the Pirates 67-0.

Football: Warriors Overcome Early Miscue; Beat Jefferson by 58

The Valle Warriors defeated the Jefferson BlueJays 64-6 in a Friday night affair that featured a couple uncharacteristic events; a turnover, a couple penalties, and a long TD run against.

Warrior QB Connor Basler had the ball slip out of his hands a couple times, one for an interception, but still went 14-18 through the air for three touchdowns and well over 300 yards.

The Warriors struck early and often. Koltyn Schilly scored on a 5-yard run, then just over three minutes later, Garrett Jaegers caught a 16 yard pass from Basler. Only 16 seconds beyond that, Jaegers recovered a fumble in the end zone. Valle 21, 'Jays 0, with 6:16 remaining in the first quarter.

Jefferson made a little noise after that, when QB Austin Graves exploded up the middle for an 86-yard TD at the 4:41 mark of the 1st quarter. That, however, would be the only scoring Jefferson would do. The 'Jays chances of competing got lower when Graves went down with a knee injury shortly after his long run.

Valle just kept going. Tristian Huck started the 2nd quarter scoring with a 23 yard run. Devon Kutz kicked his 4th consecutive extra point for the 28-6 lead.

Without Graves, the 'Jays offense folded quietly. Valle kept up their torrid pace with a pair of TD strikes from Basler, one to Jaegers, another to Nick Oberle. Two Logan Tucker TD rushes of four and six yards for scores brought in the Warrior subs and underclassmen to finish out the game, with a continuous clock the entire second half.

Valle would tackle a BlueJay in the end zone for a safety, and Zach Viox closed out the Valle scoring attack with a 14 yard TD run in the third. Final: Warriors 64, Jefferson 6.

Valle is now a perfect 6-0 on the year, and 4-0 in conference. They have scored a combined 342 points for a 57 point-per-game average, while allowing only 47 points total, 28 of those coming in one game (Westran).

The Warriors travel to Potosi this week, then they return home October 10th to do battle with Herculaneum.

Valle Wins State Gold!
photos provided by Cindy Vessell

O'FALLON -- The Valle Warriors finished a stellar season with a 13-2 state championship win over Hartville at a hot T.R. Hughes ballpark in O'Fallon Tuesday.

It was the second state championship in baseball for the school, and it came in a season that saw the Warriors extend their school record for wins (31).

For departing seniors Evan Lauer, Justin Roth, Bryant Vessell and Nolan Wood, it was something of a payback for their sophomore year. The Warriors finished second in that season.

The state championship will apparently be the last for head coach Judd Naeger. While his exit from the baseball program has been whispered knowledge in the Ste. Genevieve community, Naeger made it official after the game. He leaves the program after guiding the young men under his charge to two state championships in four appearances, and nine district crowns in 13 years. He will continue to lead a football program that has been red hot, with three state titles in the past four seasons. He told reporters at the ballpark that it all "...came down to spending more time with my family."

Andrew Basler went the distance, settling down after a shaky second inning. His complete game followed a gem by junior Daniel Bergtholdt in Monday's 4-0 semifinal win over Linn. Basler allowed only five hits.

Bergtholdt, meanwhile, was a red-hot hitter. He was 4 for 5 in the championship game after a three hit performance in the semifinal.

Valle stranded 14 runners and scored in every inning except the fourth.

The team placed third in 2007 in Class 1, won the Class 2 title in 2009, and finished second in Class 2 in 2012.

Cardinals Minor Leaguers Honored

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals announced their Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Month for May by honoring outfielder Randal Grichuk at Memphis (AAA) and right-handed relief pitcher Chris Perry at Peoria (A) for their accomplishments on the field.

Grichuk, 22, a former first-round pick by the Los Angeles Angels in 2009 who was acquired in a trade this past November, batted .321 (26-81) with six doubles, seven home runs and 15 RBI during the month while posting a 1.029 on-base plus slugging percentage. The Rosenberg, Texas, native ranked tied for 7th among Triple-A players with the seven home runs for the month and ranked 7th with the 1.029 OBP, despite missing the first eight games of May while in St. Louis with the Major League club. Grichuk hit home runs in three consecutive games from May 13-16, including his 7th career multi-home run game vs. Omaha on May 14th. He has crushed Triple-A left-handed pitchers this season at a .451 clip (23-51, 6 HR).

"Randal is coming off a very productive month in Memphis," said Cardinals Director of Player Development Gary LaRocque. "He’s hitting for average and power, earning him a promotion to St. Louis."

Perry, 23, the Cardinals 17th round (540th overall) selection out of Methodist University in Fayetteville, N.C., in the 2012 first-year player draft, was 2-0 with an 0.46 ERA over 10 relief appearances at Peoria. The Cary, N.C., native struck out 40 batters over 19.2 innings averaging 18.31 strikeouts/9 innings pitched. His 40 strikeouts were the most of any pitcher in Minor League Baseball who did not make a start, and tied for 8th overall in May. Perry threw over 2.0 innings in three of his relief appearances including a career-high nine strikeouts over 4.1 innings of relief versus Clinton on May 19th. The last reliever to earn the honors was current St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Kevin Siegrist in May 2013.

"Chris was impressive in May, working ahead of hitters and putting together low walks with excellent strike out numbers," said LaRocque.

Warriors One Win Away!

O’FALLON – The Valle Catholic baseball Warriors have earned the right to play for the MSHSAA Class 2 state championship!

Daniel Bergtholdt threw a complete game shutout, striking out 15, and he also helped his own cause by going 3-for-4 at the plate in a 4-0 semifinal victory at T.R. Hughes Stadium. The 15 strikeouts give him a sixth-place tie for most strikeouts in a game at state level (all classes).

The Warriors are now 30-3 on the year, and will take on defending state champion Hartville at 1 p.m. today.

Bergtholdt was in command all afternoon, despite allowing runners to reach third base on three separate innings. He threw 81 pitches for strikes out of 122.

Andrew Basler (7-1) is expected to make the start on the mound today. Internet users can catch the video live at mshsaa.tv.

Cardinals announce pitching changes

From a news release

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals announced changes to their pitching staff yesterday, recalling left-handed pitcher Sam Freeman and right-handed pitcher Jorge Rondon from Memphis (AAA). The team also announced that left-handed pitcher Tyler Lyons (left shoulder strain) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list and that right-handed reliever Eric Fornataro was optioned to Memphis.

Freeman, 26, who has appeared in 37 combined games (1-2, 4.18 ERA) with the Cardinals over the 2012 and 2013 seasons, was 0-1 with a 3.78 ERA in 13 games (16.2 IP) for Memphis this season. The 6-1, 165-pound lefty has allowed just two earned runs (1.50 ERA) over his last 10 appearances dating to April 12, striking out 16 batters in 12.0 IP.

Rondon, 26, who has spent eight-plus seasons in the minors, will be making his Major League debut with his first game appearance. The Calabozo, Venezuela native is a product of the Cardinals former Venezuelan Summer League team where he began his professional career in 2006 after signing as a non-drafted international free-agent in July of that year.

The 6-1, 215-pound Rondon was 1-0 with a 2.51 ERA in 11 games (14.1 IP) at Memphis this season. He has not allowed an earned run in his past five games (8.0 IP) since April 25.

Freeman will wear uniform no. 71 and Rondon will wear no. 68. Both players were expected to be in uniform for last night’s game against the Chicago Cubs.

Jason Motte and Cardinals partner to strike out cancer

From a news release

ST. LOUIS – On Tuesday, September 2nd, the Cardinals and pitcher Jason Motte will join forces to fight cancer during the 2014 Strike Out Cancer Theme Night at Busch.

Fans who purchase the special Strike Out Cancer Theme Ticket will receive a ticket to that night’s game (7:15 p.m. vs. Pittsburgh Pirates) as well as a one-of-a-kind Jason Motte bobblehead featuring the Cardinals pitcher in his popular "K Cancer" t-shirt. Fans may also purchase a VIP ticket for Strike Out Cancer Night which includes a pre-game meet-and-greet with Jason Motte (one autograph per VIP ticket), in addition to the game ticket and bobblehead. A portion of each ticket sold will benefit childhood cancer research in St. Louis.

"Fan support for the Strike Out Cancer effort has been amazing," said Cardinals pitcher Jason Motte. "I’m really looking forward to our night at the ballpark as it promises to be a nice way to honor cancer survivors, support those still fighting their battle, and remember those we have lost."

What began in 2010 as a small idea to provide support for cancer patients has evolved into the mission of the Jason Motte Foundation led by Jason and his wife Caitlin. In addition to the Theme Night and hosting annual fundraisers in Memphis, Tennessee, the Foundation partnered with locally-based t-shirt company 108 Stitches last year to produce a "K Cancer" t-shirt which benefits the cause. Earlier this year, Jason and 108 Stitches rolled out t-shirts league-wide in every team’s colors. Each t-shirt is promoted by a different player who agreed to join Motte’s effort. For each shirt sold, $5 will go to the Jason Motte Foundation and $5 to a charity of that player's choice.

"At the end of the day, we’re just trying to get the word out and raise money to help," said Motte. "I’m fortunate to have this platform and to be able to do my part to give back."

Tickets for the Theme Night are on sale now at cardinals.com/theme.

Strike Out Cancer Night is just one of the many unique personalized Theme Ticket promotions planned for the 2014 season. Theme Tickets are customized promotions that allow a select number of fans to celebrate a common interest while enjoying access to a unique promotional item and/or exclusive pre-game event. Targeted around different occupations, organizations, communities, celebrities and more, Theme Tickets let fans enjoy the game in a whole new way. Fans can learn more about Cardinals Theme Tickets at cardinals.com/theme.

About the Jason Motte Foundation

The mission of the Jason Motte Foundation is to provide comfort and care where there is a need for those affected, either directly or indirectly, by cancers of all kinds. The seed for the Jason Motte Foundation was planted in the fall of 2010 when Jason and Caitlin Motte asked, "what can we do to help?" At the time, Caitlin’s grandfather, Lynn Doyle, was a cancer patient at The West Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee. Jason and Caitlin saw a sign that mentioned a need for blankets and wondered what more they could do to help. That question led to the formation of the Strike Out Cancer with Jason Motte Foundation. The Motte family uses the monies raised towards research all while providing comfort and care where there is a need for those affected, either directly or indirectly, by cancers of all kinds.

Cardinals announce details for Christian Day

From a news release

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals have announced details for the 24th Annual Christian Day at the Ballpark on Saturday, August 2nd which features a post-game program with keynote speaker Marcus Luttrell, retired Navy SEAL whose bestselling book Lone Survivor inspired the 2013 motion picture of the same name.

Christian Day at the Ballpark is a day of faith, fellowship, and baseball, which begins when the Cardinals take on the Milwaukee Brewers at 6:15 p.m. Following the game, all fans are encouraged to stay for a special post-game program emceed by broadcaster Rick Horton featuring Luttrell and Cardinal players sharing their testimonies in faith. A popular event every season, past Christian Day events have included featured speakers such as Willie Robertson, Lou Brock, Mike Singletary, Kurt Warner, Tony Dungy, Mike Matheny and Adam Wainwright.

"Christian Day is a wonderful day of faith and baseball that we look forward to every summer. This year we are extremely honored to have Marcus Luttrell joining us at Busch Stadium to share his incredible story," said Joe Strohm, Vice President of Ticket Sales.

In 2005, during Operation Redwing’s mission to gather intelligence on a Taliban leader with ties to Osama bin Laden, Luttrell’s four-man team of Navy SEALs was ambushed on a remote ridge. Heavily outnumbered, Marcus Luttrell and his teammates valiantly fought for hours, displaying characteristic SEAL determination and bravery, until Luttrell was the last man standing. Badly wounded, it would be five nights after the nightmare began before Luttrell was rescued.

To honor his lost comrades, Luttrell established the Lone Survivor Foundation dedicated to honoring and remembering American warriors by providing unique educational, rehabilitation, recovery and wellness opportunities to U.S. Armed Forces service members and families.

For more information, or to purchase tickets, fans can visit cardinals.com/christianday. Both individual and group tickets are available for the event through this page. All fans are invited to stay for the post-game program, regardless of ticket-type.

Kory Faulkner signs with the 49ers!

CARBONDALE, Illinois -- Southern Illinois University quarterback and former Ste. Genevieve High School standout Kory Faulkner signed a free agent contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday and is attending mini-camp today.

Faulkner, who passed for 5,347 yards and 34 touchdowns in three seasons as SIU's starting QB, said 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh spotted him at a Pro-Day workout while scouting Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who was picked by the New England Patriots in the second round of this weekend's draft.

"Coach Harbaugh saw me throwing side-by-side next to Jimmy and liked what he saw," Faulkner explained. "He asked for some tape and really liked my tape."

Kory Faulkner with three of his former coaches Saturday after receiving the news.

Over Easter weekend, Harbaugh flew into St. Louis to meet one-on-one with Faulkner for a couple of hours. Although six teams indicated they had Faulkner on their draft board, the 49ers told him he was their number-one prospect.

"I respect Coach Harbaugh greatly and built a great relationship with him," Faulkner said. "He was honest with me the whole time on what their plans were. They're investing in me."

Faulkner was the only quarterback San Francisco added to the roster this weekend. He joins Colin Kaepernick, Blaine Gabbert and McLeod Bethel-Thompson.

"God's given me the ability and opportunity to make my dream come true," Faulkner said. "I'm going to compete and be the best player I can be."
