Kaneland softball steers clear of Tenn. trouble
CLARKSVILLE, TENN.—With the struggles of most area teams in northern Illinois to get softball games in, Kaneland went with a tried and true formula: get out of the state.
Visiting Clarksville, Tenn., for the Play It Again Classic and set in the gold division, the Lady Knights lost to Union County of Kentucky by a final of 4-0 in six innings, and also dropped a 4-2 matchup in five innings against Christian County of Kentucky on Saturday. KHS also lost to Peoria Notre Dame by a 3-2 margin on Friday.
Kaneland is now 3-3 on the season. KHS was set to host Oswego on Wednesday, April 9, with results unavailable for press, and hosts non-conference rival Marengo on Friday, April 11, at 4:30 p.m.
Toward the end of last week, the Lady Knights learned of their postseason assignment, and compete in the Class 3A Burlington Central Regional along with rivals BC, Genoa-Kingston, Hampshire and Sycamore. The winner of the regional moves on to the Marengo Sectional.
