About this Article

The South Elgin softball team made a convincing statement Friday that it has every intention of fighting for the Upstate Eight Conference Valley Division championship this season. The Storm used a gutty pitching performance from junior Paige Allen and a 2-run home run from standout junior catcher Alyssa Buddle, as well as a strong 3-for-4 day from senior shortstop Kara Rodriguez, to beat Northwestern recruit Sabrina Rabin and St. Charles North, 4-1, in a UEC crossover game at North.
