2104 Fall Sports Preview

Lady Bulldogs have lofty goals
Head Coach Carrie Hewett has led the Stover High School varsity volleyball team to five straight seasons of 18 or more wins, including 20 or more the last three years. Lady Bulldog fans have come to expect a winning program.

Soccer Bulldogs building from the back
This year's edition of Stover High School varsity boys soccer will have something to prove to Head Coach Roy Poynter. He does not doubt their talent, but their lack of experience is self-evident reason for him wondering what he will see when the season kicks off.

Jensen and Coach Brad Bauer
Jensen Bauer and her father, Coach Brad Bauer, will once again be the Stover High School varsity girls golf program. Jensen, a junior, will be trying to make the state tournament for the third time in three years.

Lady Bulldog golf still
a solo, but a class act
Jensen Bauer has gained a reputation for being an outstanding student and a better citizen of Stover High School. If there is anything her fans would think she might as good at, it would be hitting a golf ball.

Stover harriers rebuilding
The Jordan French era is over. Stover varsity cross country coach Jerry Fagg has spent years watching French, as well as Amy Schroder and Jacob Carver, keep orange and black thin jerseys at the front of the pack of meet after meet. But French, a three-time all-state performer, and Carver, a two-time state qualifier, graduated last year. Schroder, a two-time all-state star, left two years ago.

Battling for a good cause
Stover Police Chief Trampus Jackson endured a flat tire on the last lap Saturday, Aug. 9, at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland. Racing in the Battle of the Badges series, Jackson fell from near the front to 11th place, but managed to finish and help the law enforcement officers' race bring in about $3,000 for Missouri Special Olympics.Stover police officer Kevin Lutjen, left, was his pit crew chief.
