Notre Dame advances to Class 4 quarterfinals with 10-inning win
STE. GENEVIEVE, Mo. -- Notre Dame senior shortstop Ross Essner was looking for a way to amend for arguably the ugliest throw of Wednesday's Class 4 sectional against North County at Yanks Field. Essner cut off a throw from left fielder Nick Lindsey after an RBI single by the Raiders' Bryan McKenzy had tied the game in the fifth inning and looked to have base runner Drew Forney dead to rights going to third base. ...

Yingling wrapped up his complete-game, no-hit bid when he got Jackson's Braeden Dobbs to strike out swinging for the final out in the bottom of the seventh, and the junior lefty was swarmed by teammates and doused in water as he secured the Flyers' 5-0 win over the Indians in a Class 5 sectional Tuesday at Lindbergh High School...

For Saxony Lutheran soccer team, where there's a Wills, there's laughter, inspiration and a way
"Tell me about Heather Wills." It's not exactly a punchline in a stand-up comedy routine, but any time it's uttered around the Saxony Lutheran girls soccer team, it seems to evoke laughter. Not a mocking type of laughter, but a knowing type. The type that tells you a lot without you really being told anything...
