Stover, Missouri, has no professional sports teams or NCAA college teams. The only professional sports teams in the state are in Kansas City and St. Louis. The closest NCAA teams are the Missouri Tigers(Columbia), and the Missouri State Bears(Springfield). In Stover, the Stover Bulldogs high school sports teams, are the highest form of athletics. Stover High School—also known as MCR1—offers sports for both boys and girls. For girls, Volleyball, Golf, Soccer, Softball, Basketball, Track & Field, and Cross Country. Boys sports include, Soccer, Golf, Basketball, Baseball, Cross Country, and Track & Field. Both the Stover Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs, have never won a State Championship. In any sport. They came closest with a Volleyball team that lost in the State Quarter Finals. There have been state qualifiers in multiple sports. In the 2013-14 school year, Cross Country runner, Jordan French was named All-State. The boys soccer team has improved over the last few seasons. The class of 2017 made a big improvement and contribution to the teams succes this past season. Featuring many starters from the class highlighted by striker Tristin Dixon and Goalkeeper Alex Haag. The team lost in the second round of the District tournament and didn't qualify for the State tournament. The girls golf team, is made up of only Jensen Bauer, she is an All-State golfer. The volleyball team, has been a mainstay as the top sport in Stover for a long while. This year was no different. Again, the class of 2017 had an impact on the starting line ups. The team wasn't as successful as it has been in the past, but still had a loud crowd every night. Which is more than we could say for the basketball teams. With only 9 wins in the 13-14 season, the boys team saw improvement from the previous year. Coaches Schwartz, Dunnaway, and Baker coached up the team to a 7 seed in the district tournament. The boys team was highlighted by the Seniors and Juniors(classes 14&15). With Brock Nolting and Garrett Goetze making All-District teams. The Lady Bulldogs girls team, had a better year than boys did, managing a 4 seed in their district tournament. Coach by Ernie Haag and Jared Bellis, Mallory Uptegrove, Carley Nolting, and Ashley Schroder led the team to a great season. Along with three ballers Hunter Miesner and Jensen Bauer, the Lady Bulldogs mustered big wins at home, and on the road. The town is hoping the girls soccer, baseball, and Track & Field teams can do the same. Once again, the class of 2017 has made a huge contribution to these 3 sports. In particular, baseball. In the past two-years, the Bulldogs baseball team has only won twice. With the new freshman class, the expectations are higher than they been in a long time. The freshman have Pitcher/Third basemen Tristin Dixon, Short Stop Ethan Callahan, First basemen Triston Harms, outfielders Clayton Mathis and Brady Smith. Joining already established great players Danny Johannsen and Jordan French, the team has high hopes for the spring. So does the Track & Field team. Junior High high jump record holder Alex Haag is looking to break the high school record. The boys golf team, has returning stars Brock Nolting and Garrett Goetze, along with some promising first timers on the course. The golfers chances of winning are looking fairly good.
