Any hope of gaining a share of this year’s Gasconade Valley Conference baseball title disappeared for the Steelville Cardinals in Belle last week with a 3-1 loss to the Tigers. The Cards are now 2-2 in GVC play and 9-7 overall.
Two Steelville High School golfers earned all-district honors at the Class 2 District 2 tournament, which was held at the Randel-Hinkle Municipal Golf Course in Mountain Grove on April 30. They both advanced to the sectional tournament.
The Steelville High School boys and girls both earned first-place team finishes at Saturday’s Class 2 District 4 meet in New Haven. This is the second year in a row and the fourth time in five years the girls have won the district meet, and the first district title for the boys since 2002.
If the Steelville High School varsity baseball team could have just gotten off to a better start at home against St. James on April 23, it might have been a different outcome. The Cardinals gave up seven runs in the top of the first and fell to the Tigers 14-12, despite three home runs from senior Garrett Marshall.
The only question headed into Saturday’s Gasconade Valley Conference track meet in Cuba wasn’t whether the Steelville High School Cardinals and Lady Cardinals would win the GVC titles for the third year in a row, but by how much. As it turned out—a lot!
