Koesser and Co. connect, and Carmel advances
Jun 2, 2015 10:13 PM -
For Carmel Catholic slugging first baseman Sarah Koesser, reaching double-digit homers required double the work and effort. The result was twice the fun. Funny thing is, the senior had a feeling the payoff would be in Tuesday's Class 3A softball sectional semifinal against Lakes at Grayslake Central. "I came in here and I was like, ‘I haven't hit a home run in a while,' " Koesser said. A pair of 3-run homers later, Koesser was all smiles. She helped top-seeded Carmel win a 12-8 slugfest, while hiking her season home-run total to 11, second-best on the team behind Jenny Behan's 17.
