Wauconda thunders past Richmond-Burton
May 30, 2013 11:06 PM -
In the grand scheme of things, an hour delay for a lightning sighting was no big deal. After all, the Wauconda baseball team had already been waiting and waiting and waiting for years, if not decades, for the chance to play in a sectional championship game. So the Bulldogs weren't thrown off by having to sit inside Grayslake Central High School on Thursday afternoon for what seemed like, in comparison, a blink of an eye, to wait out some bad weather. In fact, the extra time only seemed to sharpen the Bulldogs' focus even more. Wauconda jumped all over Richmond-Burton in the semifinals of the Grayslake Central Class 3A sectional. The Bulldogs went from sitting to hitting, and hitting a lot. They scored 4 runs on 6 hits over the first two innings alone and rolled up 14 hits overall en route to a 9-1 victory.
