TROY, Ill. – The thought of last season’s 5-0 loss to Chatham Glenwood in the Class 2A girls soccer super-sectional haunted Triad. The only way to make things right was to return the favor, which the Knights did Tuesday night when they hosted the Titans, again meeting in the super-sectional....
ATHENS, Ill. – For the second year straight, the Carrollton Hawks met the Illini Bluffs Tigers in a softball super-sectional. The teams met Monday afternoon and the result was similar to last year. Illini Bluffs went on to win by a score of 2-1, earning a spot in the state tournament for...
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Last year, the Father McGivney baseball team ran into a brick wall in 2023 MLB Draft pick Dominic Voegele and Columbia in the Class 2A sectional final. At that time, the two teams were ranked number one and number two in their class. The Griffins were in an awfully familiar...
(All photos from Brad Piros) ST. LOUIS - St. Louis City SC returned to CITY PARK Saturday night to take on the Seattle Sounders in an MLS Western Conference showdown. The two teams came into the contest with similar struggles, scoring goals and winning games, but Seattle has been a bogey...

GLEN CARBON, Ill. – The Father McGivney Griffins have plenty of options when it comes to closing out a baseball game on the mound. For some time now the obvious choice was senior Ryker Keller. But head coach Chris Erwin has entrusted a new arm to try and get the job done. Junior Evan Koontz,...
CARROLLTON, Ill. – The Calhoun Warriors were looking for an upset. For the first three and a half innings, it looked like they might get one. On Monday afternoon, Carrollton High School hosted a Class 2A regional championship between the top-seeded Father McGivney Griffins and No. 4-seeded...
CARLYLE, Ill. – It takes 21 outs to win an IHSA-sanctioned baseball game. Those outs come a little harder when they’re for a regional title, but don’t tell Mason Crump that. Crump started on the mound for the Roxana Shells Saturday morning in the Class 2A Carlyle Regional championship...
