A rewind of all of the sports this year at SLHS

Saint Louis High School had many successful sports programs in the 2022-2023 school year.

In fact, fall sports were very successful this year. The football team battled through many tough losses to come out on top with a winning record of 5-4. Both junior varsity and varsity volleyball teams put up tough fights throughout the entire season and made SLHS proud. The lady Sharks golf team ended their season outstanding with being regional and conference champions. This was their first regional title in program history. Natalee Hoyt shared, “I was extremely proud of our golf season. We accomplished a lot of great things and made school history.” 

The cross country teams also did fantastic this year. The guys team took third at the state finals, after winning another conference and regional title. The girls had a smaller team this year, which made it challenging, but they did awesome and out did expectations. 

Moving into the winter seasons, the Sharks competed well. The lady Sharks’ basketball team ended with an impressive record of 13-10. Junior Josie Schrot broke the school record of most three point shots scored in a game, 13. Shark wrestlers won their second regional title in a row. They also did outstanding at the regional and conference meet along with making it to the semifinal round at team state. 

As far as bowling goes, Lilly Massaway and Madison Hartman qualified for individual bowling states.

The Sharks did well in spring sports too. Softball won its first conference title since 1998 and SLHS had enough girls to bring back a junior varsity softball team. The SLHS track team had a successful season placing high at many meets, and many students had successful individual seasons as well. Baseball played many tough games and performed great.

Additionally, SLHS also welcomed two new sports this year, equestrian and powerlifting. The equestrian team was small with only two members Bethany Bowerman and Rebekah Ross. These girls got first in their division. Bethany Bowerman expressed, ‘I loved being a part of something new at SLHS. Our season was fun.” Powerlifting was coached by new gym teacher Mr. Wawersik. The team was quite large for it being the first year. These athletes trained hard and performed amazingly in the few competitions they had.
