Gabe Worthington • Sophomore • Hannibal baseball
Hannibal sophomore Gabe Worthington played the role of hero not once but twice this week. He smoked a walk-off RBI single on Monday to top Boonville before delivering a two-out, two-run single in the seventh inning Tuesday to cap a 13-12 road victory over Mexico. As coach Daryl Zessin put it, “He’s on fire.”
Chloe Ebers • Junior • Hannibal soccer
Hannibal junior Chloe Ebers tallied four goals during the Lady Pirates’ three wins at their home tourney over the weekend, including a pair against Macomb. The defensive standout entered the tournament with just one goal on the season. “It was good to get the goals but it was because of my teammates,” she said.
