On the path to greatness, Bowie learns to cherish the journey

CHAMPAIGN — Alaina Bowie takes a measured approach — not just toward golf, but toward life as a whole.

Her golf coach at St. Thomas More acknowledges as much.

Alan Dodds describes the junior as "very much an intellectual" and "a deep thinker." He believes that out of the 700 to 800 shots Bowie took in the 2018 season, "there was probably only one I would have done differently."

STM volleyball rebounds, collects third place at state

NORMAL — Perhaps Stan Bergman’s athletes hadn’t quite moved beyond their most recent outing when they stepped onto the Redbird Arena hardwood on Saturday afternoon.

St. Thomas More volleyball would not be a back-to-back state champion. Pleasant Plains extinguished that dream the day prior.
