It's a win-win scenario for Antioch

Returning all-area senior Katie Phillips picked up the win in both games against Class 4A opponents, as Antioch defeated Lincoln-Way Central 4-3 and then host Jacobs 6-4 in the District 300 invitational in Algonquin.
"For our first time out, it was excellent," Sequoits coach Anthony Rocco said.

Phillips struck out six, walked two and allowed 2 earned runs in a complete-game effort.
