April 23 high school sports chat

Thursday, April 23, 2015 - 12:30pm

The high school spring sports season is nearly halfway done. What teams, players and coaches have impressed Fred Kroner? Our resident pre sports expert is chatting away at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday. Feel free to ask him questions ahead of time. 

Saturday's highlights: Chargers baseball dominates

Eureka move shakes up conferences

The constant on the prep sports scene, it seems, is change.

Earlier in the school year, Maroa-Forsyth announced it’s leaving the Okaw Valley Conference after the 2015-16 school year.

That conference will operate with five schools.

This week, officials at Eureka confirmed intentions to withdraw from the Corn Belt Conference following the 2015-16 school year.

Tuesday's prep highlights: SJ-O edges Unity in baseball

In baseball

■ St. Joseph-Ogden 2, Unity 0. Cole Berry fanned nine Rockets over seven innings. Zeke Eisenmenger was 2 for 2 for the host Rockets.

■ Central 8, Danville 1. Alec Barger struck out six batters, allowed two hits and did not allow an earned run for the Maroons.

Athletes of the Week: Williams and Tabb

Alex Williams
Rantoul boys’ track and field

Why he was chosen: Williams won the discus last Wednesday in a three-team meet in Danville and helped the Eagles win their first meet since 2011. Rantoul repeated as meet winner Saturday in its own eight-school invitational, and Williams was a double winner in the shot put and discus.
