Friday, December 9, 2005

St. Vincent's Waylon Richardet picked up his second football honor this week.

St. Vincent senior Waylon Richardet made his second all-state team in less than a week, as four area players made the Missouri Football Coaches Association all-state list.

Richardet, a first-team defensive lineman, was joined on the Class 1 all-state team by teammate Ben Buchheit. Buchheit, also a senior, was a first-team offensive lineman.

The Indians finished the season 7-3 and fell to eventual district champion Valle in Week 9. Richardet finished with 81 tackles and six sacks, while Buchheit helped St. Vincent gain more than 2,000 yards on the ground.

Jackson senior Cole Jansen, the SEMO North Division lineman of the year, made first-team on the defensive line in Class 5. Jansen finished with 50 tackles, 13 for loss and five sacks.

Central senior Ty Craft was the other area all-state member. Craft was chosen as a first-team defensive back in Class 4. For the season, Craft finished with more than 100 tackles and added 34 receptions for 453 yards.

Central finished 22-6-1.

All-state softball

The Southeast Missourian last month reported three players from the state runner-up Notre Dame softball team recently earned first-team honors in Class 3.

Chaffee senior Mindy Hendrix, who was a second-team all-state infielder in Class 1.

From Notre Dame, junior pitcher Beth Schnurbusch, junior first baseman Kristain Burger and freshman outfielder Erika Reinagel were first-team choices.
