With only one senior on the team and none playing at the varsity level, it has to be considered a rebuilding season for the Steelville High School volleyball team this fall. The season officially got underway Monday, but the Lady Cardinals will not play their first home match until September 23.
The Cuba Wildcats were hoping to bounce back last week from a tough Week 1 loss at Herculaneum, a game in which they led much of the way until giving up two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. But things did not go as planned for CHS when the Houston Tigers showed up Friday night at the Field of Pride for Cuba’s home opener. The Tigers scored early and often in blowing out the Cats 48-0 to drop them to an 0-2 record.
It was a disappointing finish to last Friday night’s season football game for the Cuba Wildcats. After trailing for most of the night in the season opener, the Herculaneum Black Cats scored twice in the fourth quarter – the go-ahead touchdown coming with just over one minute left on the clock – in order to squeeze out a 16-14 victory over CHS.
The season opener was a struggle for the St. James High School football team last Friday. The opener was unplayable for the Perryville Pirates Friday.
The two teams will square off in Week 2 on Friday, Sept. 6 at Perryville. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. It will be the second varsity game in four days for the Perryville Pirates.
It’s hard to believe the Steelville High School girls cross country team could lose the greatest runner it ever had and get better, but that’s what the 2019 season is looking like as the Lady Cardinals prepare for their first meet on September 11 in Vienna. Oh yeah, the boys are also going to be great.
It was a bitter-sweet season-opening victory for Salem High School first-year head coach Dylan Wyrick. With a major emphasis on the bitter.
Despite the death of his father earlier in the week, Wyrick was able to juggle football duties with funeral arrangements and family time the last few challenging days.
