High School roundup

SIKESTON -- The Sikeston golf team ended the week on a high note beating Kennett 174 to 209.

"The team is starting to show some consistency in their shots," Sikeston coach Rick Oetting said. "We still haven't peaked but we have two weeks until districts."

The Bulldogs were led by Bill Green and Dakota Trevino as medalists on the day, each shooting a 42.

Clayton Mayfield shot 44 while De Bizzell turned in a 46 for the team.

"We are looking to reach the mid-60s this season for nine holes, but today's performance was an improvement over the past week," Oetting said.

The J.V. lost to Kennett 205-197. Scoring for the J.V. were Gratten Allen, Adam Launius, Sam Gleason and Austin Littleton. The Bulldogs will be off until they travel to Dalhousie next Thursday for the Saxony Lutheran Tournament.

SIKESTON -- The Sikeston tennis team improved to 3-0 on the season with an 8-1 victory against Charleston on Thursday at the SPS tennis courts.

"We've got to find some consistency," Sikeston coach Brian James said. "We've had so many matches cancelled or postponed that we can't get in any flow right now. We're only getting about a match a week at the most right now and it's almost like we have that beginning-of-the-year look every time out. We need to get some matches under our belt."

Sikeston swept through the singles competition without much of a problem. Charleston's lone victory came in doubles when David Holley and Daniel Barnes beat Logan Hampton and Charlie Jones 8-6.

Sikeston won the rest of the matches convincingly.

"We are just as consistent as I'd like to be right now up and down the lineup," James said. "A lot of that will improve by just getting some matches in. We've got some tough matches coming up and we've got to pick it up. I think we'll get to where we'll need to be, eventually. Some of the good competition coming up will hopefully inspire us a little bit."

Here are the results from Thursday's match:

Singles:

1. Sam Zhao def. David Holley 8-1 2. Logan Hampton def. Daniel Barnes, 8-2 3. Charlie Jones def. Corey Newton, 8-1 4. Justin Deere def. Nathan Peters, 8-0 5. Stuart Strom def. Todd Rogers, 8-1 6. Seth Colwick def. Clint Hess, 8-0

Chaffee 2, Dexter 0

CHAFFEE - Chaffee's Chris Hanback pitched a complete game and Bard Daugherty had two hits as the Red Devils defeated the Dexter Bearcats, 2-0, Thursday in SEMO Conference baseball action.

The Red Devils were the visitors on the scoreboard, as the game was moved from Dexter to Chaffee due to wet conditions at Dexter's field.

Hanback struck out three and walked none in the seven-inning, complete-

game victory.

"Both team's pitched well and played good defense," Dexter coach Brian Becker said. "The main difference in the game was that Chaffee got three of their five hits in the same inning and scored two runs, and we scattered our six hits out. We just couldn't put any together. But you have to give the Hanback boy credit. He pitched a good game."

Dexter's Derrick Chamberlain was tagged with the hard-luck loss. The senior left-hander went the distance and allowed just one earned run, while recording five strikeouts, two walks and just five hits.

"Derrick (Chamberlain) has pitched well for me all year," Becker pointed out. "He gutted it out against Scott City and got the win and we didn't produce many runs for him in that game and we couldn't give him any run support again. We just didn't do anything at the plate for him."

The loss was just the second of the season, and first in the SEMO Conference for the Bearcats, now 7-2 (3-1) on the year.

Chaffee improved to 8-3 over all and 3-3 in the SEMO Conference.

Daugherty was the only player in the game with a multiple hit performance.
