The season did not end the way the St. Joseph's Academy Angels softball team had planned it. They ran into a hornets nest Saturday in regional competition at C&H Ballpark in St. Peter's, losing to Francis Howell of St. Charles, 10-0. Howell with a 20-8 record advances to the state quarterfinals with the victory. The St. Joe season comes to a halt at 14-9. It was still a good year for JP Cummings team with a variety of bright spots. The 13-3 win the previous game over Hazelwood West in the sectional championship was a big one. The Angel bats went comatose at the wrong moment. They managed just 2 hits in a 5-run abbreviated game. Theresa DeCosty recorded an inside the park homerun in the first inning to get the Vikings on the board. Emily …

She is a perfect one thousand percent as substitute coach, winning both games at the controls of the ship. The most recent came Tuesday night.

I found my place in the world of boys through sports.
Rhonda Weiche relocated to St. Louis a couple of years ago. She brings to our city true Southern values and a spirit of can do. Her articles will compare and contrast her life back in Oklahoma and Arkansas with her new home today. I grew up in a household where testosterone ruled and the only other female influence was my mother. Back then, I longed for someone to see things from my perspective, someone besides my mother, someone closer to my own age—someone female. Living in the Oklahoma countryside, there was nobody around except for my three brothers and their friends – all boys. My brothers played sports and my dad coached summer league baseball. And when they weren’t playing or coaching we were watching every sport on TV known to man…
