Midwest Members Eagles of the Month
Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year Hannah Meiser of CM
BETHALTO – Hannah Meiser’s junior season with Civic Memorial Eagles girls cross country reached its No. 1 goal with all-state honors.
That target was hit when Meiser placed 19th at the Class 2A state meet at Detweiller Park in Peoria to become one of 25 all-staters in 2A.
With 14 of the 18 runners finishing ahead of Meiser at state in 2021 also returning for the 2022 season, her senior goal seemed overly ambitious. Full Article
Boys Cross Country Coach of the Year: Jacob Peal
BETHALTO – It was one small step for Civic Memorial athletics, one giant leap for the Eagles’ boys cross country program. At least it felt that way for CM coach Jake Peal. “There was always goals,” Peal said of his ambitions when taking over as cross country coach in 2016. “In any sport, you want to win your conference and you want to get as far as you can in the postseason. But considering in Bethalto, it was like being in the ‘60s and Kennedy saying, we’re going to send astronauts to the moon. Full Article
Large Schools Boys Soccer Coach of the Year
BETHALTO - When Derek Jarman talks about his 2022 Civic Memorial boys soccer team, his eyes light up.
Those same eyes also glisten just a little as he bites his lip and gazes in his mind's eye back at the Eagles' season. It was a record-setting campaign with Jarman at the helm for the 24-5 run, the best in CM soccer history.
For that, and for the life lessons he helped his players learn, Jarman is The Telegraph Large Schools Boys Soccer Coach of the Year.
Large Schools Girl Soccer coach of the Year
BETHALTO - The 2023 season was chock-full of memories for CM girls soccer coach Eric Zyung. His team had the best season in CM girls soccer history. But despite the Eagles' 16-9 record, Zyung had a pretty noteworthy accomplishment as well. Even though he would rather talk about his team's success, some of the spotlight shone on Zyung, who became the winningest girls soccer coach in CM history during the season. Full Story
It is estimated that just one in every 2.6 million people grow to be 7-foot tall. Sam Buckley is in that exclusive club.
With it comes the expectation to be a basketball player.
“If I was 6-foot, I’m not going to lie,” Buckley says, “I’d probably be a golfer. Buckley achieved that goal this spring and will play NAIA college basketball at Arizona Christian in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale. The Civic Memorial Eagles graduate goes to the desert as the 2022-23 Telegraph Large-Schools Boys Basketball Player of the Year. Full Story
Large-Schools Baseball Player of the Year Bryer Arview of CM
BETHALTO – Randy Cherry in 2004. Devin Caldwell in 2010. Corey Price in 2017.
Some of Civic Memorial’s greatest baseball players that got to play on some of the Eagles’ greatest baseball teams.Cherry hit .419 with 38 RBI in a 28-9 senior season. Caldwell hit .475 with 30 RBI in a 28-6 senior season. Price hit .455 with 50 RBI in a 28-11 senior season. All three of those 28-win springs share the school record for victories and all three produced a Mississippi Valley Conference championship. Full Story
Boys Cross Country Runner of the Year Jackson Collman of CM
BETHALTO – Jackson Collman completed the greatest season in Civic Memorial Eagles boys cross country history with an all-state run on the first Saturday of November. But all the great did not without a bit of disappointment.
“It was a good season, but I didn’t quite get everything I wanted,” Collman said. “I wanted to dip into the 14s. But sadly, that didn’t happen.” Full Article
Large Schools Boys Soccer Player of the Year Bryce Davis, CM
BETHALTO - Bryce Davis feels scoring goals as his job. He's become pretty adept at it.
So much so, in fact, that he pummeled area nets for 61 goals, while adding eight assists in 2022. The CM senior earned All-State honors along the way, led the St. Louis area in scoring by a whopping 30 points and earned a college scholarship
And he's The Telegraph Large Schools Boys Soccer Player of the Year. Last year, he shared the honor with CM teammate Parker Scottberg. Full Article
Wrestler of the Year Abe Wojcikiewicz of CM
BETHALTO – While most college freshmen will depart for school next month, Abe Wojcikiewicz has been at Stanford since mid-June.
There may be much that the Civic Memorial graduate misses while being away from home and living off Northern California’s San Francisco Bay in Palo Alto. Even the Bethalto summer heat.
“A little bit, believe it or not,” Wojcikiewicz said. “It’s a little cooler out here. I don’t miss the humidity as much. But, every once in a while, it would be nice to have a hotter day.” Full Story
Large Schools Girl Soccer Players of the Year
BETHALTO - Individually, either Abrianna Garrett or Aubree Wallace would be considered a formidable threat on a soccer field.
Combined, the Civic Memorial duo was lethal in 2023. Garrett, a junior, set the area on fire with a St. Louis area-leading 54 goals and 14 assists, while senior Wallace provided steady leadership at midfield, scored 23 goals and dished out 28 assists in helping the Eagles to their best season ever.
The Eagles ran just beyond the realm Saturday, but broke eight minutes for the first time and set a school record with a third-place finish at the Class 2A state meet at Eastern Illinois’s O’Brien Stadium in Charleston. Senior Jackson Collman and juniors Lucas Naugle, D.J. Dutton and Justice Eldridge finished in 7 minutes, 57.54 seconds to produce CM’s best state performance and third state medal. Full Story
