Flyers get two hits and two runs scored from both junior Jordan Harmon and senior Matt Feldt, but still come up short in 5-4 defeat against St. Mary's.
The emotionally thrilling and surprisingly exciting 2012 high school baseball season came to a disappointing and sudden end for the Lindbergh High School baseball team on Saturday, when the Flyers lost their first round district playoff game, 5-4, to St. Mary's Catholic High of St. Louis at LHS' Flyers Field. Lindbergh, which came into the district tournament as the No. 2 seed, was hosting the seventh-seeded Dragons, in a matchup that would earn the winner a trip to the district semifinals and a date with No. 3 seed Rockwood Summit on Monday, with the district championship game scheduled for Tuesday night at the Ballwin Athletic Association. Unfortunately for the Flyers, they won't be seeing either of those games after getting upset by St…

Lindbergh baseball also has a big week.
Depth has been a strength for the 2012 Oakville boys tennis team. Tiger coach Linda Gebauer was confident that her team would do well at the bottom half of their order in Wednesday's rivalry match against Mehlville. The Tigers did sweep the bottom matches but also did well at the top of the lineup in an 8-1 victory. Oakville improved to 5-4 for the season. "We have been competing well all season," Gebauer said. "Two of our losses have come by 4-3 scores. We used a 6-3 district format against Mehlville and knew they would be good in that format with players able to double back. Mehlville has a couple of pretty strong players at the top of the lineup and we knew those matches would be critical." Oakville senior Alex Bergman won the match of …

Eight different players have scored so far for Summit in its 3-0 start. Kali Thomas leads the way with four goals. Defense has been the key for Cor Jesu in its 4-0 start. The Chargers have three shutouts in the four games with wins over Edwardsville (4-0), Marquette (4-0) and Ursuline (3-0).

Lindbergh and Parkway South are battling for the top spot in the Suburban West baseball race.
Our weekly look at the latest news and notes from the Suburban West Conference: The wacky world of the Suburban West Conference in baseball this spring was shown last week in four games played by Lindbergh. The Flyers seemed to play themselves out of the conference race with losses on Tuesday and Wednesday to Northwest, which entered the series with a 1-8 mark. Ryan Roth had two hits and two runs batted in and pitched two scoreless and hitless innings while striking out four in a 6-3 Lions win on Tuesday. Northwest came from behind the next day, scoring six runs in the final three innings in a 7-5 win. But Lindbergh righted itself on Thursday and Friday with a two-game sweep of Oakville, which had been in second place in the conference. …

Roundup: Lindbergh is not out of the conference title hunt, although the Flyers’ hopes were hurt by a 5-4 loss to Fox.
An unbeaten record at this point of the high school baseball season is indeed a rarity. Parkway South has yet to taste defeat in 2011, after winning a pair of tight games over Lafayette last week. But Lindbergh is not out of the picture for a conference title, although the Flyers’ were hurt by a 5-4 loss to Fox last Wednesday. That snapped a seven-game Lindbergh winning streak. The seventh win for the Flyers was last Tuesday in a 10-0 win over Fox as Jordan Harmon and Conor Irwin combined for a two-hitter while Kendall Helbert had a home run and drove in five runs to pace the offense. Lindbergh is 6-2 in the league and 10-4 overall. The Parkway South Patriots were coming off of a sweep of Mehlville over the weekend to stay undefeated. …

The Flyers are 6-1 in one-run games, and hope to make a run to a Class 4 state championship.
The target for the Lindbergh baseball team is clear this season, and that is to win the Class 4 state championship in Springfield, Mo. during the first weekend in June. After winning eight of their past nine games, the Flyers certainly look poised to remain a title contender deep into the 2011 baseball season. Lindbergh defeated Eureka on Thursday night, 6-5, to improve to 10-3. “We were tested right away this season, and that’s the way you want it to be. You want that adversity, and it helps give you a sense of how to set your lineup for later in the season,” Lindbergh coach Darin Scott said. Even more impressive is the Flyers’ 6-1 mark in the elite Suburban West Conference. In fact, if you talk with Scott, what happens during the …
