Charleston takes on Mt Zion in cross country this afternoon.

It’s rematch day as three of the five events taking place feature familiar faces. In cross country, the Charleston squads travel to Mount Zion, while both Charleston girls golf and tennis get to take a crack at notching another win. 

CHS girls golf @ Teutopolis, 4 p.m.

Charleston is coming off a triangular match with Effingham and Sullivan. Last week, the Lady Trojans were 24 strokes ahead of Effingham at the Olney Invite. Hannah Harpster shot a score of 40, while Stacey Zerbst shot a card of 41. Rileigh Babbs (47), Taryn Pearson (51), Madeline Sanders (51), and Malia Hodges (58) rounded out the team’s third-place finish. 

Averie Bushue was the medalist with a score of 41 last week in a win over Shelbyville, while two other golfers scored in the 50s. Teutopolis is 5-7-1 on the season. Charleston defeated T-Town last week when the two teams played last Thursday. 

MHS girls golf vs Mahomet-Seymour, 4 p.m.,

The Green Wave play host to the Bulldogs at Meadowview Golf Course. Mahomet is led by Ainsley Winters, who shot a 10-over 46 at Blue Ridge at Lake of the Woods Golf Course earlier this season. Mattoon has not played since last Thursday. 

CHS tennis @ Robinson, 4:15 p.m.

Robinson placed third overall at the IHSA Teutopolis Sectional last year despite having no members on the team move onto state.

MHS tennis vs. Flora, 4 p.m.

This will be a great test for the Green Wave. Flora placed second in the IHSA Centralia Sectional last season with 19 points, losing to Highland’s 32. Flora lost Sonae Shelton to graduation. Shelton was the Sectional’s single’s runner-up. However, Flora had two members from the team move onto state as sophomore Lanie Carder was the third-place finisher. Carder figures to be the team’s No. 1 singles player. 

CHS boys and girls XC @ Mount Zion, 4 p.m.

Charleston is just coming off an appearance at Mount Zion on Saturday. The team will get to run at Fort Daniels Conservation Area for the second time in five days. 

For the boys, Luca Carcasi took sixth overall with a time of 18 minutes, 25 for three miles. Adam Rudibaugh clocked in at 19:25 while Eugene Ohba ran a time of 20:17. Mount Zion was led by Julian Baker’s time of 17:40, which netted him third overall. Byron Gallardo was next with a time of 19:00, while Isaac Carpenter ran a time of 19:31. It should make for a fun dual meet. 

As for the girls, the Trojans have not trumped the Lady Braves yet. Megan Garrett ran 20:13 last week after having run under 19 at the CHS Invitational. Garrett’s time was still faster than Mount Zion’s No. 1 runner, Renee Ballard, who ran a 20:38. Grace Spoonhour took fourth at 21:11. Mount Zion’s top 5 all ran below 22:30 while Charleston’s Illa Richter (21:46) was the only other to run below that time. Lilly Long was in 22:40.
