KANELAND—It’s not the spring athletic season, but there’s still things to play for if your Kaneland High School baseball.

The Knight boys played a 26-game summer season before entering regional action, hosted by St. Charles East High School.

Things are looking up for the KHS lineup, as the ninth-seeded local outfit earned a 6-1 win over Machesney Park’s Harlem Huskies on Monday—a win over the eighth seed.

Kaneland followed that up with a 6-5, nine-inning win over the the top seed Rock Island Rocks on Tuesday afternoon.

It was set to lead to a battle in the summer regional semifinal at St. Charles East High School on Wednesday against the host Saints.

St. Charles East is the fifth seed and had victories over Marmion Academy and Geneva as notches in the belt.

Matt Limbrunner and Blake Sowell earned the wins this week.
