Schneider, Guercio have it covered for Lake Zurich
May 6, 2014 1:07 AM -
Just remember that just one softball season ago, tall Lake Zurich catcher Amanda Guercio was playing softball for Lake Zurich Middle School South's team. And actually, that team was pretty good, only falling in the end to Prairie School. The Bears (15-4, 5-2) also have a senior pitcher in 5-foot-1 Olivia Schneider. And a considerably taller freshman catcher in Guercio. Schneider did her job on Monday, limiting visiting Zion-Benton to 2 runs in 7 innings. And Guercio provided the offense for her new Bears with a 2-run homer and 2-run double. Lake Zurich avenged an earlier loss to the Zee-Bees with this 4-2 win.
