          RECOGNIZING THE TEUTOPOLIS HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL TEAM

                                 ______
                                 

                           HON. JOHN SHIMKUS

                              of illinois

                    in the house of representatives

                         Tuesday, June 4, 2019

  Mr. SHIMKUS. Madam Speaker, I rise to congratulate the Teutopolis 
High School baseball team on winning the 2019 Illinois Class 2A 
championship. Teutopolis defeated Pleasant Plains 12-6 for the title, 
capping a 28-8-1 season for the Wooden Shoes.
  The team's dedication and hard work were evident again, as the Wooden 
Shoes advanced to the state championship game for the third straight 
season and added a second title to the one captured in 2017. Head Coach 
Justin Fleener formed a team with both high production in the batter's 
box and resilient defense in the field.
  I extend my sincere congratulations to the entire team: Mitch Hemmen, 
Mitch Hardiek, Brady McMahon, Trenton Schwerdt, Tyler Runde, Andy 
Niebrugge, Justin Hardiek, Derek Deters, Evan Addis, Hayden Ruholl, 
Dawson Smith, Evan Wermert, Brock Deters, Matt Deters, Clint Weber, 
Brayden Will, Luke Ungrund, and Dylan Overbeck.
  Madam Speaker, the players, coaches, and the entire community of 
Teutopolis should be very proud of their accomplishments. I wish the 
graduating seniors the best in their future ventures and good luck to 
those who will return for a chance to make it back-to-back 
championships next season.

                          ____________________
