Burlington Central junior right-hander Angie Morrow has enrolled at Kaneland High School her father, Bill, confirmed Thursday.

Bill Morrow said his daughter, who has verbally committed to play for Wisconsin, has enrolled at Kaneland as the family anticipates the sale of its home in the Central school district and the purchase of a new home in the Kaneland district to be complete Sept. 9.

"I'm a plumber and plumbing hasn't been the greatest the past few years," Bill Morrow said. "We had to reduce our property taxes and get a smaller home."

After going 15-4 with a 1.62 ERA and helping the Rockets to a regional championship and a 28-9 season as a freshman, Morrow sat out her sophomore season and most of the summer season after undergoing shoulder surgery March 29. She also hit .390 with 21 RBI her freshman season.

"I never really got an opportunity to coach her because she was injured but I enjoyed the time I had with her and she's a great kid," said BC coach Wade Maisto. "From Day One I said I had three No. 1 pitchers, and now I still have two."

That would be senior Brooke Gaylord and sophomore Emily Kisch, who combined for 23 wins last spring, leading the Rockets to a 27-4 season and the Big Northern East title.

At Kaneland, Morrow will join a team that finished 23-4 last season and won the Big 12 East championship. Both Central and Kaneland are Class 3A schools.
