Seven errors derailed the Quincy High School softball team in its 12-2 season-opening loss to Alton on Monday at Jacksonville.

Alton pitchers Morgan Butler and Jordyn Roady combined to limit the Blue Devils to four hits. Dani Damon had two of QHS's hits, including a triple.

Damon and Johnna Goudschaal, who singled, had RBIs during Quincy's two-run third inning, which trimmed Alton's lead to 7-2.

Cooper heads down the hallway in Baldwin West for another day of school. He's focused. He's friendly. He's furry. Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
