  • St. Charles East’s bats deliver against Burlington Central Mar 30, 2015 5:47 PM
    It would be just fine with St. Charles East softball coach Kelly Horan if every player on her team ended up wearing a Fluer-dis-lis on their helmet this spring. That would likely mean the Saints would have another banner — and fun — season. The Fluer-dis-lis is the official name for the Saints’ symbol and even though Horan’s team played its first game on Monday, two Saints — juniors Katie Kolb and Kelly Rinker — already have earned the right to wear it, which comes by way of nomination from their teammates for being a good teammate. Kolb had a big day for the Saints Monday, going 3-for-3 with a double, a triple, 2 runs scored and 2 RBI as St. Charles East opened its 2015 campaign with a 9-5 nonconference win over Burlington Central in a game that was moved to St. Charles when BC’s field was deemed unplayable.

  • Batavia rallies by York in season opener Mar 30, 2015 7:42 PM
    Blending some new talent with familiar faces, Batavia’s baseball team began the 2015 season Monday morning the same way it did throughout much of last season — with a win. Senior left-hander Evan Acosta (1-0) pitched 5 innings of 3-hit ball with 1 walk and 5 strikeouts while senior right-hander Nick Rogalski tossed a couple scoreless innings of relief during the Bulldogs’ 6-2 nonconference triumph over York (0-2) at Pfund Field in Carol Stream.

  • Pociejewski, Maine West are in their element Mar 30, 2015 10:03 PM
    After not living up to her own high standards last week at the Barrington Softball Spring Fling, Kayla Pociejewski was itching to get back into action on Monday. “I didn’t have my right timing at Barrington,” said the Maine West junior catcher. “We’ve had some really good practices since then and did some real intense hitting.” Pociejewski (3-for-4, 2 RBI) carried that intensity into Monday’s home opener. The Warriors’ leading home run hitter in 2014 belted her first one this spring and just missed the cycle by a double as West topped visiting Rolling Meadows 14-2 in five innings.
