Rock Bridge pitcher Kayla Turnbull did a little bit of everything Friday night, helping the Bruins beat St. Teresa's Academy 4-2 at Rock Bridge Field.
Tracie Ford just might have found a new calling this season.
The senior, who started at outside hitter in Columbia College's 3-0 (30-26, 30-26, 30-22) victory over Lindenwood switched to setter for the Cougars' 3-0 (30-25, 30-18, 30-18) victory over the University of Illinois-Springfield.
The MU soccer team was once again the victim of a slow start, falling to the University of Wisconsin 2-1 Friday night at the Nike Tiger Invitational, with junior Jennifer Nobis scoring the lone goal.
When senior quarterback Blake Tekotte went down with an injury early in the first quarter, junior Andrew Perkins knew he was prepared to step in under center.
Perkins proved it on the field, throwing for 226 yards and two touchdowns and running for a running for a score, in Hickman’s 37-7 rout over Lee’s Summit North Friday night.
The spotlight was shining squarely on the shoulders of Rock Bridge quarterback Logan Gray on Friday, and he knew it.
The sophomore admitted he was a little nervous in his first game as a starter in the Bruins' season opener at Cecil Naylor Field in Marshall. Gray threw two interceptions in the first half. The butterflies eventually left, and Gray threw the only touchdown of the evening late in the game. The Bruins won, 7-0.
