BELL CITY -- Will Bogan, 6-foot-10, 300 pound center for Bell City, has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at Southeast Missouri State University.

Bogan, who led Bell City to a second place finish in the Missouri Class 1 state tournament, averaged 22.2 points and 14.7 rebounds per game for the Bell City team that was 28-5 on the season. He shot 64 percent from the field and 63 percent from the free throw line.

A first team all-state selection for two straight years, Bogan was selected as the co-player of the year in Southeast Missouri by the Southeast Missourian.

"We are very excited about Will Bogan's decision to become a student-athlete at Southeast Missouri State," said Redhawks head coach Scott Edgar. "He has had a very accomplished high school career and we think he can have a very accomplished college career. We look forward to helping him develop and mature.

"Bogan has great hands, excellent court vision and great size. He comes from a winning program. We're excited that he is now a Redhawk."

Edgar indicated the Redhawks expect to sign a few more players during the signing period.

Notre Dame won the junior varsity match with Emily Matthews shooting 41 for the team.

CAPE GIRARDEAU - Dexter battled tough weather conditions and an even tougher Cape Central team as the Bearcats lost to the Tigers, 162-180, Wednesday at the Cape County Club in Cape Girardeau.

Dexter had posted better team scores than Cape Central in two earlier tournaments, but the Tigers "are a lot better team on their home course," according to Dexter coach Eric Sitze.

Freshman Chance Holden again led the Bearcats with a nine-hole round of 41. He was followed by Jon Bowman (44), Dillon Demaree (45), Luke Rhine (50), Matt Miller (63) and Matt Cunningham (68).

The Bearcats will next be in action April 18 (Wednesday) at home when they will try to return the favor when they host the Tigers on their own home course, Hidden Trails County Club.

CHARLESTON - When opportunity knocks, open the door.

Dexter's Amanda Dooley seized her opportunity Tuesday when she had a career day as the Lady Bearcats pounded a hapless Charleston Lady Bluejays team, 17-0, Tuesday on the road.

Dooley pitched a no-hitter, hit two home runs over the fence (one a grand slam), drove in nine runs, scored twice and had a "pretty good day," according to Dexter coach Tammy Crowley.

Dooley scored five strike-outs and faced the minimum of 12 batters in the game called after four inning. The junior right-hander also led a 13-hit attack with a 4-for-4 day as the Lady 'Cats improved to 7-1 on the season.

Stephanie Jackson also had a big day at the plate, "as all the girls were hitting the ball pretty decent," Crowley noted, with a 3-for-4 day that included a double, three runs scored and two batted in.

Other notable offensive performers included Paige Garner (3-for-3, three runs scored, 2 RBI), Alyssa Trewatha (1-for-2 with three runs scored), MIranda Davis (1-for-2 with three runs scored) and Ashley Sisk (1-for-2, two runs scored, one RBI).

The Lady Bearcats will be back in action today when they will host the Puxico Lady Indians in a 4:15 p.m. game.

SIKESTON -- The Bernie Mules defeated Scott County Central 13-3 in five innings on Tuesday.
