    The Breese Merchants got in the win column with a doubleheader sweep over visiting Beckemeyer in Breese on Sunday.
    Bartelso got their first game in with a 6-0 win over visiting Aviston while Trenton dropped their first game of two against visiting Germantown.  Both second games were rained out.
    Bartelso sits atop the standings with a 3-0 record while Aviston sits at 2-1.  Breese is 2-2 on the season while Germantown is 1-0, Trenton is 1-2 and St. Jacob is 0-2.
    St. Jacob will travel to Beckemeyer this Sunday while Germantown hosts Aviston and Bartelso plays in Trenton.  All three match-ups are doubleheaders.
    Germantown 8, Trenton 6:  The Reds battled back to stun the Miners before the skies opened up and washed the game out in the sixth inning.
    Germantown outhit the Miners 9-3 despite falling behind 4-1 after one inning.  The Reds scored the final seven runs of the contest to earn the victory.
    Germantown wasted no time taking an early lead when Bryce Beckmann took the first pitch he saw the opposite way for a single. 
    Two batters later, Brock Hill chased him home with a long double over the center fielder.  Hill was thrown out trying to stretch it into a triple as the Reds led 1-0.
    Trenton took the lead in the bottom of the inning with Tim Paulk leading off by reaching on an error by Hill.  Drew Frey and Paul Ritzheimer each drew walks from Trevor Kohrmann to load the bases.
    Kyle Donovan tied things up with an RBI groundout to get the game 1-1.  Cole Gobert was hit by a pitch to reload the bases.
    Kyle Eversgerd drew an RBI walk in front of a 2-run single from Ryan Meddows to stake the Miners to a 4-1 lead after one inning of play.

    How good are they? All five — father, mother, two daughters and a son — played a sport in college, for at least two years. At least four of them, two daughters and the parents continued to stay involved in the sports they loved as a coach after their playing experience was over. It is unclear if the baby of the family, Logan Kohrmann, a Breese Central graduate, will get an opportunity to coach basketball. 
    What is clear is the youngest of the children of Glenn “Big Arm” and Gigi Kohrmann recently finished a career, which took place at three different colleges, that could not be described as anything, but successful. Not only for the Class of 2020 graduate of McKendree University on the basketball court, but in the classroom as well.
    “I learned so much from my family members,” said Logan Kohrmann. “Without my parents, none of this would be possible. My oldest sister (Shelby) showed me confidence from the way she played and my older sister (Torre) reminded me that defense is still a huge part of the game of basketball.”
    Like the end of his high school career as a Central Cougar, when he garnered all-state status and helped them finish third in the Illinois High School Association Class 1A State Championships, his last year of college basketball was his best year of college basketball. 
    In his final year with the Bearcats, Kohrmann, who played in, and made 28 starts, averaged a team-leading 20.4 points per game. He averaged 35.4 minutes per game, also a team-high, and was one of two players to average in double figures. His 570 points was team-high by 253 points. He also had 150 rebounds, an average of 5.4 per game, 88 assists, 30 steals and 10 blocked shots. Kohrmann was second on the team in both assists and steals.
