OCT. 20 — St. Teresa senior twins Amy and Tracy Kuhle were focused on one goal — not finishing out of the top four at the IHSA Girls Tennis state tournament. To assure top four, the Kuhles had to beat the team that knocked them out in semifinals last year — LaGrange Park Nazareth Academy’s Alysa Straub and Lexi Petrovic. The Kuhles had no problem with Straub and Petrovic, beating them 6-2, 6-2 on their way to a second-place finish.
NOV. 1 — In what may have been the most dominating individual performance in 2012, St. Teresa’s Marie Less had 31 kills — at least half of them from the back row — in the Bulldogs’ 25-17, 23-25, 25-18 win against Downs Tri-Valley in the sectional finals. Less had just one hitting error.
NOV. 3 — It’s no surprise that the St. Teresa girls cross country team won its third straight championship, but Bulldogs senior Ivy Handley hadn’t even been the team’s best runner this year going into the state meet. She proved what she was capable of by blowing away the field to win the Class 1A state championship.
DEC. 7 — St. Teresa’s Ross Anderson had 26 points on 11-of-17 from the field and grabbed seven rebounds to lead the Bulldogs to a 58-49 win against Central A&M in the finals of the Macon County Tournament.
MAY 1 — In a matchup of the Okaw Valley Conference’s top teams and top pitchers, St. Teresa’s Aaron Michel won a duel with Monticello’s Jacob Williams when the Bulldogs’ Kyle Leckrone grounded a two-run single up the middle off Williams to give St. Teresa a 3-2 win and the inside track on a conference title.
Shae Genenbacher became the first St. Teresa athlete to make state in the pole vault, set a school record for digs with the Bulldogs and is one of the leaders of the basketball team.
