Daily Herald report

Ever since Stevenson's softball team earned coach Larry Friedrichs his 500th career win, the Patriots have been on a roll.

Stevenson swept a nonconference doubleheader from host Prospect, 15-2 and 6-4, Saturday to improve to 11-12 and cap a 5-0 week. Once 3-11, the Patriots -- who entered the season 4 wins shy of Friedrichs' milestone victory -- have won eight of their last nine.
