BROOKVILLE â€”Â Junior Nathan St. Laurent was just shy of a perfect game, giving up only one hit and one walk, leading the Brookville Raiders (13-5) to a 9-0 victory over Moniteau (11-8) Wednesday night.
"It's the first one I've had this year, and it felt really nice to actually throw seven innings," St. Laurent said. "My arm still feels great, so it's definitely a good feeling."
With the victory, St. Laurent and the Raiders will face Karns City at 4:30 p.m. today at Clarion-Limestone to decide who will become the D-IX Class AA champions.
Out in the garage, there is an old box full of trophies that were given to my brother at one point or another in his athletic career.
When he moved to Canada, he didn't have room to take all of his loot with him in his pickup truck, so he had to prioritize and make decisions about which things were essential for the trip.
The box of trophies missed the cut, and he left us with the option of seeing if there was someone who might be able to make use of the trophies and possibly donating them to that cause.
