It was the fourth straight victory for Wauconda (4-1, 2-0).

Grant led 4-0 after two innings and 6-0 after four. But Kayla Wedl's third triple of the season knocked in a run in a 2-run fifth that helped get Wauconda's offense going.

Then in the Wauconda sixth, after two were out, the hosts got consecutive singles from Alex Kinnamon (2-for-2), Brooke Sefcik and Emily Holub (RBI), before LePage delivered her big hit. A couple of errors helped push across the tying and go-ahead runs.

The freshman Wedl earned the win in relief, striking out the side in the sixth.

Warren 20, Stevenson 10: The host Blue Devils received 2 hits apiece from Selaina Coronado (3 RBI), Jill Fox and Amy Ricci (double, 3 RBI) and captured the North Suburban Lake contest in five innings.

Jenna Wagner earned the win, pitching 3 innings and not allowing an earned run. She struck out seven and walked four.

Warren (3-3, 2-0) overcame 10 walks.

Stevenson (0-1, 0-1) got 2 hits apiece from Taylor Koenigs (double) and Jordan Cortesi.

Antioch 22, North Chicago 0: Sage Keyes homered, doubled twice and knocked in 4 runs, and Kaytee Keefe struck out 14 batters and helped herself at the plate with a double and 5 RBI, as the host Sequoits cruised in North Suburban Prairie action.

Antioch also got 2 doubles from Taylor Schiltz. Other doubles came off the bats of Kaylee Karpiel, Jessica Pedersen, Kristen Chivers and Hannah Skoog. Kaylene Ressler had a triple and 3 RBI, while Chivers added a pair of stolen bases.
