Ste. Genevieve's 2018 campaign saw some positive highlights, but Post 150 also endured some trials, and its season ended on a bitter note.

Post 150 won five of its first six games before it endured a two-game bump to Festus and Perryville. Ste. Genevieve manged to stay a little above the .500 mark throughout the regular season, but its biggest roadblocks took place in the postseason tournaments.

Post 150 dropped its district opener, and was then knocked out by De Soto two games later, but had a second shot when it qualified for the zone tournament as the host team. Ste. Genevieve won its opener, but failed to get key hits and took a defeat to Festus before Cape Girardeau ended Post 150's season. 

Ste. Genevieve finished the season 16-13, and head coach Junie Basler hopes the numerous returners will be motivated to avoid a similar finish this year.

"Last year I think our expectations were higher, and we didn't achieve that," he said. "I hope there's some motivation. I know there is from the coaching staff end, and I hope there is from the players' ends because we've got a lot coming back."

Ste. Genevieve will open its season on Saturday with a noon doubleheader against Jackson, then host Potosi on Monday, June 3.
