  • Caliva, Glenbard North oust Conant Jun 7, 2014 10:05 PM
    Glenbard North’s Alex Caliva broke her bat at practice on Friday. But for the first time in three years, the senior second baseman did not have a broken heart after playing in a Class 4A sectional championship game. Caliva and the top-seeded Panthers turned the tables from the past two years when they lost 1-run games. This time, it was Caliva’s game-winning double to left that scored Stephanie Campos with the winning run in the bottom of the seventh for a 6-5 victory over No. 2 Conant (26-6) at Bartlett High School.

     
  • Heck, yes: Wauconda’s still playing Jun 7, 2014 6:38 PM
    Call that a heck of a finish for Jena Heck. Not that the Wauconda senior’s softball season is over.

  • MacDonald drives Barrington through to supersectional Jun 7, 2014 10:51 PM
    Rachel MacDonald is living the dream. Just a couple short weeks ago, MacDonald was playing on Barrington’s JV team. Now she’s the Fillies’ latest hero, and not just once but twice in the same week. MacDonald, who had the game-winning hit in Barrington’s sectional semifinal win on Wednesday, did it again Saturday. The sophomore designated player hit a solo home run in the fourth inning, then drove in 2 more runs with a double in the sixth as the Fillies beat DeKalb 6-4 to win the Class 4A Jacobs sectional championship in Algonquin.

     
  • Warren’s hit parade continues against Lake Zurich Jun 7, 2014 5:33 PM
    There was enough action packed into the Class 4A Stevenson softball sectional championship to fill up two games Saturday in Lincolnshire. No. 3-seeded Warren jumped out to a commanding 11-0 lead over No. 2 Lake Zurich after 3½ innings only to see the Bears battle back to cut the lead to 11-8 after five innings in this wild title game between two North Suburban Lake Division rivals. But when all was said and done, the Blue Devils (24-9) were able to hold on for a 12-9 victory over Lake Zurich (27-5) to advance to their second supersectional championship game in a row Monday at 7 p.m. in Barrington.

  • Heraty’s homer gets Grayslake Central going Jun 4, 2014 11:01 PM
    Grayslake Central’s softball team seemed to searching for energy until Brandy Heraty walked to the plate in the fourth inning. With one crack of the bat, she woke her team up during Wednesday’s Class 3A sectional semifinal at Ridgewood. Her home run pulled the Rams even on the scoreboard against Lakes. She added a bases-loaded walk in a 10-run fifth, as second-seeded Grayslake Central went on to beat the third-seeded Eagles 12-4. The Rams (23-12) will take on No. 1 Wauconda (28-8) in the sectional final at 11 a.m. Saturday.

     
  • Lake Zurich outslugs Libertyville Jun 5, 2014 10:34 AM
    There were 5 triples. Also two inside-the-park homers by Libertyville’s leadoff hitter, Tayler Oberman. Two girls, Lake Zurich’s Maria Schroeder and Libertyville’s Madi Bembinski, each drove in 4 runs. Five pitchers took part in this sectional semifinal game at Stevenson. In the end, Lake Zurich used back-to-back triples from cousins Mallory and Carlee Parsons to put across 4 runs in the visitor’s seventh inning. And sophomore relief pitcher Katie Malek made those runs stand up in a 12-9 slugfest win over the Wildcats.

     
  • MacDonald, Dolezal put Barrington in sectional final Jun 4, 2014 9:58 PM
    The postseason is all about making the most of your opportunities. Sophomore Rachel MacDonald and the Barrington softball team sure did that on Wednesday in Algonquin. In her first start and with just six varsity at-bats under her belt, MacDonald delivered the biggest hit of her young career, a two-out, two-run, first-pitch rocket shot double to the fence in left field in the top of the fourth inning that scored sophomore Kelly Katis and senior pinch-runner senior Jenna Privatsky with the only runs junior Keenan Dolezal would need as the Fillies beat Rockton Hononegah 2-0 in the semifinals of the Class 4A Jacobs sectional.

  • Montini even better the 3rd time Jun 3, 2014 10:55 PM
    It’s usually difficult to beat a team three times in a season, but Montini is making softball look easy these days. The Broncos defeated Suburban Christian Conference rival St. Francis for a third time this season, winning 11-1 in five innings in Tuesday’s Class 3A Glenbard South sectional semifinal. The Broncos will meet either Lemont or Glenbard South in Saturday’s sectional final.
