Daily Herald report

Barrington's undefeated softball team did nothing to harm its 8.5 margin-of-victory average on Saturday.

The Fillies (6-0) recorded a pair of five-inning wins in its own quadrangular at the Fields of Dreams -- 11-1 over Huntley and 16-4 over Mundelein.

Catherine McMahon (4-0) threw a complete game against Huntley (3-2) with 2 strikeouts and 1 walk.

Leading the Fillies' offense were Carly Kordich (2-for-3, double, RBI), Abbey Jacobsen (2-for-4, 2 doubles), Jenna Patino (2-for-3, double, 3 RBI), Haley Luczak (2-for-3, RBI), Tori Meyer (2-for-3, 2 RBI) and Leyden Atlas (2-for-3, 2 runs). Kendall Peterson also had a double.

Starting pitcher Caroline Hoppe (1-0), who went three innings, and Meyer combined for a 4-hitter against Mundelein. Each had 2 strikeouts.

The offense was led by Kordich (3-for-3, 3 runs), Rachel Krzysko (2-for-3, RBI), Jacobsen (2-for- 3, double, 3 RBI), Atlas (2-for-3, RBI), Patino (2-for-4, double, 2 RBI) and Luczak (2-for-2, 4 RBI) as the Fillies' margin of victory, now in six games, increased to 10.5.

Elk Grove wins two: The Grenadiers improved to 4-0 with a 10-3 win over Mundelein and a 7-6 win over Huntley at the Barrington quad.

Leading the Grens' 11-hit attack against Mundelein were Jaimie Klicka (2-for-3, home run), Haley Itzenthaler (2-for-4), Leilani Rivera (2-for-3) and Christina DiMaria (double).

Sabra Morton (2-0) earned the win by tossing a 4-hitter with 7 strikeouts.

Sophomore Brook Baldassarre picked up her first varsity win against Huntley. She went the middle three innings (replacing starter Klicka) before Morton came on in the seventh to earn the save.

Freshman Katia Pendowski belted her second homer of the season for the Grens, who were led by senior Amy Pietruszynski (2-for-4, 2 doubles), Jessica Kearns (2-for-3), Keely Cronin (2-for-2), Hayley RathmelI (2-for-4) and Morton (double).

Grens coach Ken Grams is hoping all-area pitcher Kylie Thomsen can return to the mound by Saturday.

The St. Cloud State recruit suffered a broken finger while facing the first batter of the top of the second inning against Resurrection last week. She took a line drive on tip of her fourth finger on her pitching hand, suffering a fractured knuckle. Thomsen played first base and batted for the Grens on Saturday.

Hersey 4, Glenbrook South 2: Senior shortstop Katie Wingerter belted her fourth home of the season as the visiting Huskies improved to 4-1.

The Northern Illinois recruit (2-for-4) raised her school-record career home run mark to 26.

Sophomore Brianna Luciano (2-1) struck out eight in the first five innings to earn the win while classmate Sarah Bailitz threw the final two innings to pick up the save.

Other top hitters for Hersey were Makayla Tsagalis (2-for-4), Jodie Hermann (2-for-3) and Remy Gerew (2-for-4). Adrianna Malina also had a double for the Huskies.
