Success - Article sent! close

Here's a list of numbers for softball fans: 16, 16, 15, 27, 21.

No, those aren't your weekly lottery numbers.

Those are the number of runs the Barrington softball team has scored in its last five games.

So far, the Fillies have been the equivalent of that certain local basketball team that finished second in the Class 4A state finals last month.

Yes, the Fillies seem to be scoring runs this spring like the Rolling Meadows girls basketball team was scoring baskets this winter.

Barrington's most recent scoring barrage came Friday at The Ballpark at Rosemont where they blanked Leyden 21-0 in five innings.

The Fillies' 21-hit attack included Loren Krzysko's 3-run fifth-inning blast that sailed out of the park over the left field fence.

The senior third baseman barely missed her 29th career homer later in the inning when she tripled to finish the game 2-for-5 with 3 RBI. Both of Krzysko's shots were into the wind.

Hitting wasn't the only highlight for Barrington (6-0).

Sophomore Keenan Dolezal (3 innings, 4 strikeouts, 1 walk) and senior Cassidy Kraimer (2 innings, 2 strikeouts, no walks) combined for a no-hitter. Dolezal is now 4-0.

Top hitters for the Fillies were Krista Moore (3-for-4, triple, 4 RBI), Raegan Fingerman (4-for-5, double, triple), Tess Bolger (3-for-3, 2 triples, 2 runs), Katie Dehnert (2-for-4, double, 2 RBI), Maggie O'Hara (2-for-2, 2 doubles, 4 RBI) and Erin Ward (2-for-4, double, RBI).

Conant 17, Resurrection 0 (5 innings): The two-time defending Mid-Suburban League champs (3-0) had their bats ready to go in Chicago, led by sophomore Dee Dee Durr, who went 3-for-3 with a home run and 5 RBI.

Other top hitters were Sarah Thompson (2-for-4, 3 RBI), Elisa Ambrose (2-for-5, 3 RBI, 2 runs), Rachel O'Malley (1-for-2, 3 RBI) and Hailey Rothstein (1-for-2, 2 RBI, 2 runs, 2 stolen bases).

Sophomore Kim Zaucha earned the win, striking out one with a 2-hitter.

Palatine 4, Wauconda 3: Host Palatine improved to 2-3 as senior Megan Hedstrom (2-2) not only threw a 5-hitter (7 strikeouts, 1 earned run) for the win but also belted a home run and triple while going 2-for-3 with 3 RBI.

Pirates senior Lauren Logan was 1-for-1 with 2 walks, 3 runs and a stolen base.

Prospect 6, St. Viator 3: Michelle Korf (1-3) threw a 5-hitter with no earned runs and 3 strikeouts as the host Knights earned their first victory.

Prospect's offense was led by Casey Lenski (2-for-4, 2 doubles, walk and 2 RBI). Cassie Poulos also doubled for Prospect (1-4).

Krystal Harris, pitcher Sam Hogan (3-2) and Michelle Presslak all went 2-for-3 for the Lions (3-2).

"It was great to get our first win," said Prospect coach Jim Adair. "We didn't play defense as well as I want but the kids stepped up when they needed to and got out of some tough situation and the girls are starting to believe in themselves.

"Michelle Korf (1-3) was tough and we're getting better every inning but 3 errors is too much. I'm happy with the win."

Rolling Meadows 7, Libertyville 3: Sophomore Lane Winkler's grand slam in the top of the fifth inning gave the visiting Mustangs (3-2) the lead for good as senior Sara Brunlieb (3-2) threw a 7-hitter with 5 strikeouts.

Winkler ended up 2-for-4 with 4 RBI. Other top hitters for the Mustangs were senior Sam Anderson (2-for-3, triple), senior Hannah Whidden (2-for-2) and junior Jenny Watson (2-for-4, 2 RBI).
