The Illinois High School Association (IHSA) baseball and softball tournaments roll on toward their final rounds, while the state track and field events were held this past weekend in Charleston.

In baseball action, Freeburg dispatched of Teutopolis Monday night by a score of 3-1 in one of the Class 2A supersectionals. Freeburg had previously beaten Chester to advance. Carbondale is slated to play Salem at Troy in Class 3A sectional action.

In Class A softball play, Trico sent Goreville home and their Monday game against New Athens was moved to Tuesday due to the weather. Class 2A play had Carterville and Teutopolis slated to play Monday in the Johnston City supersectional.

Cahokia’s boy track team followed the example set by their girls in winning the cClass 2A title. Carbondale managed a fourth-place finish.

Individually, Carmi’s 800M runner Michael Brown brought home a first in Class A competition. Salem’s Tyler Jourdan won the pole vault.

Massac County’s defending state high jump champ Alex King had to settle for a fourth-place finish in his event as he continued to be hampered with pain in his “plant” foot.

King had jumped sparingly all spring and just couldn’t duplicate last year’s medal winning height.

West Frankfort’s Hunter Johnson brought home second in the event which was won by LaSalle-Peru’s Logan Zeman with a jump of 6’8”. Marion sophomore Darryl Sullivan took fifth just behind King.
