Warriors’ Sr. Weiler walks it off to brag

A frustrated senior Mia Weiler just needed a hit. She was 0 for 3 in the game.

Valle Catholic just needed a win, having lost the last three games.

They got both in dramatic fashion last Wednesday at Challenger Park during part deux of the annual Old Settlement Showdown with crosstown rival Ste. Genevieve

Weiler walked off a double up the middle to score sophomore Addison Donze to give the fourth-ranked Warriors (12-5) town braggin’ rights until next time.

Valle came into the game frustrated after winning the regular-season title of the MAAA Conference earlier in the season, but taking fourth place in the MAAA Tournament.

Ste. Genevieve (12-7) is the one frustrated now because it could have been the winners of this game when its go-ahead run in the sixth was nullified (they would have led 3-2) on a questionable obstruction call at second base by the umpires earlier in the game.
