It was a big weekend for a couple of area high school sports teams. The Putnam County baseball team took 2nd place at State Saturday. The Panthers fell 6 to 2 to Waterloo in the Class 1A title game at Dozer Park in Peoria. Coach Dave Garcia’s squad finishes their season with a 24 and 11 record. An impromptu parade was held upon their return. The parade went thru Hennepin, Mark and Granville before returning to the school.
Then Sunday, the St. Bede Lady Bruins softball team took 4th place at the Class 2A State Finals in East Peoria. The Lady Bruins lost a 1-0 game to Nashville, last year’s state champs. Coach Bill Prokup’s team finishes the season with a 24 and 7 record and the academy’s first-ever state finals appearance by a girls team. The team received a police escort from Oglesby to Peru before reaching the school gym, where they were saluted by family and fans.
