Daily Herald report

Paige "No Hit' Alt did it again.

The Schaumburg sophomore threw her third straight no-hitter on Thursday with a 10-0 shutout over visiting Wheeling in five innings.

Alt (5-1) has not given up a hit in 17 innings.

Her previous two no-hitters were against the Prospect and Hoffman Estates softball teams.

Alt struck out 11 of the 18 batters she faced in Thursday's gem.

"Paige pitched another great game," said Saxons coach Ellen Abreu, who threw her share amount of stellar games as an all-area hurler for Fremd.

Alt also sparkled with her bat, going 3-for-3 with 2 RBI, 2 singles and a home run.

Also leading the Saxons offense was Elaine Walker, who belted a grand slam while going 3-for-3 with a triple.

Other hitting leaders for Schaumburg were Roxanne Kakareka (2-for-2, home run), Lindsay Leiber (1-for-2, triple) and Shannon Felde (1-for-2).

The Saxons improved to 12-4 and 5-0 in the Mid-Suburban West where they are a half game behind Conant (9-0, 6-0).

Wheeling junior shortstop Nikki Mikosz sparkled in the field.

"She was solid," Abreu said. "She had a great diving catch to keep the ball in the infield and made a nice catch on a foul ball."

Fremd 12, Hoffman Estates 8: On Tuesday, Fremd coach Jim Weaver said Tracy Welninski's grand slam over the center field fence against Fenton was probably the longest blast he'd seen on the Vikings' diamond.

Apparently, Welninski hasn't had enough.

She has hit two more the last two days, one against Schaumburg on Wednesday and another against Hoffman in a 3-for-4 performance with a double, 4 RBI and 3 runs.

Other top hitters for Fremd were Holly Straup (2-for-4, 2 runs, RBI), Leigh Farina (2-for-4, 3 runs, double), Julie Josten (3-for-4, 2 runs, RBI), Kayla Kaufman (double) and Lauren Vanhavermaet (double).

Joanna Josten (4 strikeouts) went the first 5⅓ innings while Lea Barrett (3 strikeouts) finished the final 1⅔ innings and picked up the win for Fremd (11-4, 3-2).

Hoffman (6-7, 2-4) was led by Sam Acosta (2-for-5), Jordyn Fera (4-for-5), Andrea Wolinski (4-for-4, home run, double) and Tracy Osimowicz (2-for-4).

Palatine 9, Rolling Meadows 8: Courtney English went 2-for-3 with a home run, double, 2 RBI and 2 runs as the Pirates rallied from a 7-1 deficit.

Other top hitters for Palatine (4-12, 1-4) were Nora Walsh (3-for-4, 2 runs RBI), Grace Rohrwasser (2-for-4, RBI), Victoria Parrot (2-for-4, triple), Jamie Haze (double) and Emily Griffin (double).

Winning pitcher Jules Udoni, Dominique Boisvert and Erin Davis shared time on the mound for Palatine while Lydia Schultz and Lauren Hattory each threw for Meadows.

The Mustangs (3-13, 0-5) were led on offense by Chloe Prodanovic (4-for-4, 3 RBI, 2 doubles), Maddie Morgan (2-for-4) and Eliana Psarros (double, 3 RBI).
