Softball handles late-season stretch

By on May 22, 2014

KANELAND—A slashed schedule this week meant it was as spotless a seven-day stretch as you could get for Kaneland High School softball.

With the regular season gradually coming to a full stop, Kaneland’s lone game this week was in DeKalb, ending with a 4-1 win along the Dresser Road campus.

Kaneland now sits at 15-11 on the season, with a 6-3 record in Northern Illinois Big XII conference play. At this point in 2013, the Lady Knights were 23-3 behind a stellar senior core.

Other games scheduled were shelved completely or postponed, bringing the total to five of the last seven contests. Friday’s game against Southwest Prairie Conference school Plainfield North was cancelled, while a home matchup with Morris set for Saturday was postponed to Wednesday. Monday’s contest with Plano in Maple Park was cancelled, as well.

The win over DeKalb took place in eight innings, with three plated in the top of the frame for the win. Burlington Central transfer Angie Morrow got the win, and Paige Kuefler’s RBI double broke the tie.

After Morris’ encounter, the Lady Knights head to Aurora to face Rosary in a doubleheader.
