Washington High School took three teams to the Missouri Fall Academic Tournament on Saturday, Oct. 22. There were 32 teams from 20 different schools on hand.

The WHS A team went 12-0, winning the final over second place Ladue A for the second week in a row, and defending its title from last year. 

The A team set several records for the program.

“We track a statistic called ‘powers’ - where if you buzz in early enough and are correct, you earn 15 points instead of 10,” said Washington Coach David Dennis. “Our previous high for that last year was 71 back in March. At Eureka last week, we earned 96.  This tournament, we earned 115. Joe Stitz personally earned 81 of those, more than we'd had as a team last year.” 

Team members for WHS A were Spencer Johnson, Joe Stitz, Matt Dew and Cole Phinney.  Stitz finished the day as the top overall scorer with over 110 points per game. 

The WHS B Team, made of 3 juniors and a sophomore, finished fourth overall.

Team members for WHS B were Jonathan Amlong, James Collier, Carrie Derner and Ryan Hill.  Amlong placed as the seventh leading scorer. 

The WHS C Team, all freshmen, went 4-6 on the day, finishing 26th.  

Team members were Zoe Godefroid, Marcy Lampe and Elise Thierbach. Lampe finished the day as the 11th highest scoring player. 

Team photos are below.

Part of the purpose was for the students to learn how math and other skills play an important role in the construction industry.

Click here for the Class 4 softball bracket.

Washington’s Taylor Hendrix pitched all nine innings to earn the win in the quarterfinal game.

The Lady Jays broke a 1-1 tie with three runs in the top of the ninth inning to make the score 4-1. They scored two of those runs on bunts by Libbie Harrison and Sarah Becszlko.

Seckman made the score 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth inning and had the tying run on second base with no outs, but couldn’t push that run across.

Washington stopped a squeeze bunt attempt to retain the lead.

The Lady Jays played great defense in the game, particularly in the bottom of the fourth inning, where Seckman had the bases loaded with no outs.

Becszlko, a freshman, caught a fly ball in left field and fired it home to nail the Seckman runner at the plate, who was tagging up from third base. Washington catcher Jessica Miller applied the tag to complete the double play.

The next batter lifted a short fly ball to center field, where Washington’s Nichole Brinker raced in and made a diving catch to save two runs and end the inning.

Washington Head Coach Phil King and players Grace Evans, Libbie Harrison, Brinker and Hendrix talked about the game on video following the game. Click here to see the video.
