SPRING SPORTS NOTES: Raiders take aim on tennis playoffs


Fortunately for the Pembroke Hill boys tennis team, the players seemingly have developed amnesia when recalling events from the Missouri Class 1 state tournament last season. Back then, the Raiders lost to Excelsior Springs in the second round, but now coach Dale Eshelbrenner said his players have not been haunted by that performance.

"We're primarily a completely different team than last year," he said. "For most of them, last year's deal doesn't mean anything. Their goal is to go as far as they can and do as well as they can in the state tournament. We are pretty good, and we have a pretty good shot at the state tournament."

The Raiders take the first step to state in the District 6 tournament that is scheduled to start at 8:30 a.m. Thursday at the Plaza Tennis Center.



When Lincoln Prep plays Pembroke Hill in girls soccer on Saturday in the first round of the Missouri district tournament, the Lincoln Prep girls should be confident after sweeping three games last week and wrapping up the Interscholastic title.

"We're doing real good, we're presently seeded seventh in district," first-year coach Jefferson Wolfe said. "Those (district teams) are going to be some really stiff competition, but the girls have been working hard, and I think we're going to give them a good run."

Lincoln Prep has youthful leaders in freshman forward Claire Mansur, who leads the team in scoring with 31 goals, and sophomore goal keeper Asriel Brown, who enjoyed three shutouts last week.

The Tigers also mix in senior captain defenders Taylor Masenthin, Alesha Thomas and Morgan Guy.


Behind senior Ethan Pace's long-distance victories and multi-talented senior Mike Winner, the St. Mary's boys track and field team took second place in the Missouri Class 2 District 7 meet last Saturday.

Pace cruised in the 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs for his pair of first-place finishes, and Winner stayed true to his name with victories in the 110 hurdles and pole vault.

Also at the meet, Hogan Prep junior Maurice Sneed won the 100, 200 and led off the Rams' first place in the 400 relay.
