The ‘Lukes Report

By Scott Maxwell
A quick roundup of all the action from your St. Marys DCVI Salukis.
The boys baseball team played the Central Huron SS team on Monday, but unfortunately couldn’t come up with the results they were looking for, dropping the game 6-0. Central Huron pitcher Jordan Pepper was spectacular in the game, as he didn’t let St. Marys get on the board. They were also supposed to play a game on Wednesday, but it got rained out. The loss drops them to 3-4, and which ties them for fourth in the league.
The junior boys volleyball team went 1-1 on Tuesday at South Huron, losing to Listowel before beating South Huron. St. Marys won the first set against Listowel 25-16, but Listowel wouldn’t let up, winning the next sets 25-22 and 25-16. St. Marys showed similar resiliency against the home team, with South Huron winning the first set 25-22, before the Salukis came back to win two dominant sets 25-11 and 25-14. The team remains at .500 with a 3-3 record, and they are tied for fifth.
The senior boys volleyball team showed no mercy in their games on Tuesday, as they swept both games against Listowel and South Huron. Against Listowel, they won all three sets 25-11, 25-16, and 25-15, following it up by winning all three of their sets against South Huron by scores of 25-12, 25-12, and 25-14. The sweep improved their record to 5-1, and they are just two points behind the first place St. Mikes team.
The junior girls basketball team hosted South Huron and Stratford Northwestern on Wednesday. They started with a Globetrotter-like effort over South Huron, winning 58-8, before losing 51-35 to Northwestern, a back-and-forth affair that saw the road team take over in the end. Abbey Thorup got nine points in the loss, while Becca Knarr got seven. The team is 6-2, which ties them for second in the league.
The senior girls basketball team also hosted South Huron and Stratford Northwestern, but saw different results. Despite both teams having equal scoring chances, the Salukis couldn’t drive the ball to the key, with South Huron winning 36-18. Jensen Dundas scored 10 of the team’s 18 points. St. Marys rebounded in the next game, with a 40-30 win over Northwestern, with Ashlyn Maxwell getting 10 points and Laura Vink draining nine points. The win proved significant, as their 3-5 record tied Northwestern in the standings at seventh.
The field hockey team had two extremely well played games on Wednesday, with the ball usually being in their opposing team’s end. However, they couldn’t produce, as both games against Listowel and Mitchell ended in 0-0 ties. The team is 4-4-4, and they remain third in the league
