LeBeau responded with a rope down the right-field line for a two-run double. Jenkins followed with another two-bagger to make it 3-1.

“It’s all about confidence for me,” Jenkins said. “I know that I can do it, and I go up there swinging every time. Bri is an excellent hitter. Sometimes it’s hard to follow her, but I try to rise to the challenge and I usually get it done.”

St. Edward 7, Rosary 3
Tarah McShane (18U-SS) had 2 hits, including the game-winning grand slam, and 5 RBIs for St. Edward (1-6). 
 
 Andrew 10, Joliet West 2
Sam Staisiunas (18U-SS) was 2-for-3 with a double and 3 RBIs

Player of the week
Mollie Lindeman (18U-GOLD), Hebron, In.  She went 4-for-4 with two doubles, a triple and four RBI in a victory over Gavit on Thursday a day after having a home run in a victory over Merrillville.

 Stagg 3  - Homewood Flossmoor 1
After Kleinhow walked the opening two batters of the second inning, Vikings’ coach Katie Rice-Hoger replaced her with junior star (Sarah Burke (16U-SW). The junior star quickly nullified the Chargers’ attack, striking out 11 and allowing just one hit in the final six innings.
 Rice-Hoger did not second-guess her decision to not start Burke. “You can’t pitch her every game, and that’s hindsight,” she said.

 Richards 20, Crete-Monee 5: Hannah Jenkins (18U-SS)  powered Richards (9-0) to victory going 4-for-4 with a homer and 4 RBI.

 Hannah Jenkins (18U-SS) (2-for-4, 3 RBI) led an active offense as Richards improved to 8-0 overall, 6-0 in conference. “We’re all pretty solid hitters,” said Jenkins, who walloped a two-run home run in the seventh. “We always focus on the ball first, and we get in the runs when we need to.”LeBeau got some breathing room in the fifth thanks to a two-run outburst that featured RBI singles by Jenkins and Kaminski. LeBeau drew a walk in the seventh and was sacrificed to second by Kappel (16U-FY) before Jenkins launched an 0-and-1 pitch over the left-field fence.

Lincoln-Way East 5, Marist 3: Kaycee Hart (16U-SB) (6-0) pitched a complete game in the Lincoln-Way East (7-0) victory. She also hit a 3 run homer and scored two runs.

 ◊Lincoln-Way East 19, Thornridge 0: Nicole Miskowicz (16U-SB) hit a home run and a double and racked up four RBI for Lincoln-Way East (5-0).

 Richards 11, Bremen 0: Winning pitcher Brianna LeBeau (5-0) struck out seven in the win for Richards (7-0, 6-0 South Suburban Red). Sam Kusta (16U-SW) went 2-for-2 with an RBI and two runs.


Oak Forest 13, Lena -Winslow: Calie Delisi (14U-JT) had three RBI in the victory for the Bengals.
◊Last year Lake Central (Indiana) easily beat LaPorte 13-0 and advanced to the Class 4A semistate game, losing to eventual state champion Hamilton Southeastern 5-3. The Indians return all of their top five hitters -- Jess Haskins (18U-GOLD), Sam Terry (18U-GOLD), Kaitlyn Ranieri (18U-GOLD) , Nikki Adams and Marissa Maluchnik -- from 2010, and this high school version of Murderer's Row should spend much of the 2011 season knocking the ball around the yard. "Of these six girls, every one of them could be someone else's No. 3 hitter," L.C. coach Jeff Sherman said. "But they're great teammates. They understand that a couple of them might have to bat No. 6 or No. 7 for us. "It takes a special kind of person to put the team ahead of themselves." To think a team that scored 235 runs last year could be even better is frightening. Most offenses last spring rose up when the pitching rubber was moved from 40 to 43 feet away from the plate, but at Lake Central, it was like a rocket ship caught fire. "Last year, we didn't think we'd go as far as we did," Ranieri (18U-GOLD) said. "Now, our expectations are a lot higher. We want to win state. We have a lot of people back and we were not that far away from winning it last year."

Lincoln-Way West 12, Eisenhower 0: Meg Fahrforth & Erin Miller(14U-GK) combined on a one-hitter for the Warriors.
◊Evergreen Park 8, T.F. South 3: Sophie Kessler (18U-SS) (3-for-4) had a home run and two RBI for T.F. South (2-4, 2-3).
  

Lincoln-Way East 7, Minooka 1: Kaycee Hart (16U-SB) was the winning pitcher, striking out six and going 2-for-3 from the plate with an RBI.

◊No. 10 Richards 3, T.F. South 2: Breanna Kaminski’s double in the bottom of the sixth scored  Danielle Kappel (16UFY) with the winning run for host Richards (2-0, 1-0) in the South Suburban crossover.  Kappel (double) and Brianna LeBeau (triple) also had RBI for the Bulldogs.

◊No. 10 Richards 11, Oak Park-River Forest 8: Danielle Kappel (16U FY) contributed two hits and three RBI for host Richards (1-0).
 ◊Jarrell, Hart, Ernat, 16U SB Shine for LWE  in victory over OakLawn Batting in the nine-hole in Lincoln-Way East’s lineup, Nikki Jarrell (16U-SB) realizes chances to knock runners in may not be as plentiful as they were Friday. But playing in her first varsity game, the sophomore second baseman took advantage at the plate with runners on base, going 2-for-4 with four RBI in East’s 11-1 nonconference win over Oak Lawn in Frankfort in six innings.

Jarrell’s four RBI led Lincoln-Way East (1-0) in its season opener while Kacyee Hart (16U-SB) earned the win in the circle. The junior threw four innings, striking out six and allowing two hits and two walks with an earned run. Heading to the dish for her first varsity at-bat, Jarrell could not have asked for a better situation. With her team trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the second with the bases loaded, she roped an offering that split the outfielders in right field. The ball rolled all the way to the fence for a bases-clearing triple, and Jarrell later scored on Jill Reid’s sacrifice bunt.

“Down 1-0 like that, I was just trying to get the job done and put the ball in play,” Jarrell said. After surrendering a run in the top of the first (an Allison Palhegyi RBI single), Hart went into cruise control over the next three innings. The junior did not allow a hit over the next three innings.

“I just had to focus on what pitches I could and couldn’t throw just based on the batters,” Hart said. “(The first inning) was those first-game jitters, and it’s easier once you get that first run in from your team.”

2013 HIGH SCHOOL HIGHLIGHTS

4/3/13

OAK FOREST TRIO COMES UP HUGE IN WIN
Kylie Powers (16u CSD), Taylor Sterkowitz and Shannon Coyle drove in a combine nine runs in Oak Forest's 12-5 win over Homewood-Flossmoor Wednesday.

Sophomore Kylie Powers (16u CSD), freshman Taylor Sterkowitz and sophomore Shannon Coyle
occupy the three through five slots in the Oak Forest lineup. So far this season, they've been the Bashin' Baby Bengals.

In Tuesday's 12-5 victory over Homewood-Flossmoor, the trio was a combined 8-for-11, with two home runs and nine RBI. It's been a trend for Oak Forest, which improved to 6-0 behind their power hitting and the eight strikeout pitching of senior Emily Larsen (18u SS).
"The thing that I've been very impressed with a lot this year is their ability to execute and string those hits back-to-back," Bengals coach Katy Dammer said. Sterkowitz was responsible for eight of their runs on Tuesday, going 3-for-4 with five RBI and three runs scored. Her two-run bomb to left field off of H-F starter Angela Roberts in the second inning was her second home run of the season. "I'm just trying to make contact with the ball, do whatever I can to help the team score runs," Sterkowitz said. She wasn't alone.

Powers was 4-for-4 with a pair of doubles and four runs scored, while Coyle blasted a two-run home run in the bottom of the first to cap off a four-run start for the Bengals. Oak Forest has socked seven home runs in six games. And although all eight hits in their latest win came from the three through five batters... "We've been hitting throughout the lineup," Powers said. "And when somebody makes a mistake, we just have each others' backs."

With a 7-0 lead through two innings, Larsen was pretty much able to cruise. The fireballing left-hander had a couple of rough spots, most notably surrendering a two-run home run to H-F cleanup hitter Katelyn Shereyk in the top of the fifth. But there were no signs of the wildness that occasionally plagued her in 2012. "She knows that however she performs is how everybody is going to perform around her," Dammer said of Larsen. "She's got to come out strong. And, especially when we're at home, when she starts off and gets the three up and three down, it gets the energy rolling for us."

Kasey Nemitz (16u JP) was 3-for-4 and Roberts 2-for-4 for H-F (1-3).
Lincoln-Way West 17, Bremen 3
Haley Sawa (16u JP) and Emily Ray hit back-to-back home runs for West.

4/2/13 Hodges' homer lifts Lincoln-Way East  
By Tony Baranek tbaranek@southtownstar.com



Juell Hodges launched a game-winning home run in the bottom of the eighth as Lincoln-Way East edged Andrew 7-6 on Tuesday.

When Lincoln-Way East’s Juell Hodges faced Andrew reliever Hannah Theilmann in the sixth inning of Tuesday’s SouthWest Suburban crossover, she was fooled badly by a changeup and took it for strike three. When Hodges faced Theilmann again in the bottom of the eighth, the climactic pitch wasn’t a changeup. Hodges wasn’t fooled, either. The senior took a full cut at a 3-and-1 fastball. She got all of it, launching an opposite-field home run over the fence in right field to lift the host Griffins to a 7-6 victory over Andrew.

Nikki Jarrell (18u SS) also cleared the fence for East (3-1), while Carissa Ernat (18u SS) (two doubles) and Jorgi Calombaris both were 3-for-4. Griffins pitcher Chrisi Mizera (18u SS) improved to 3-0, striking out nine while allowing eight hits. She was a survivor, to be sure. 

“They’re a really good team,” she said of Andrew. “They’re a strong team, and probably the best we’ve faced. I just couldn’t give up.”

The back-and-forth battle saw Andrew jump out in front 2-0 in the top of the first, the key hit an RBI single by Migawa, only to have East strike in the bottom half with a three-spot against Thunderbolts starter Madison Sherwood thanks mostly to a pair of doubles by Ernat and Calombaris. 

RBI hits by Beatty and Christner allowed Andrew to score single runs in the third and fourth, but Jarrell tied it at 4 with a one-out home run in the bottom of the fifth that KO’d Sherwood. A double steal, with courtesy runner Sarah Esposito on the scoring end, put East up 5-4 through five. 

“Both teams came up with big hits at key moments. They just had one more than we did,” Andrew coach Jim Holba said. “There were too many flyballs on our part. Mizera is a good pitcher. We just need to keep learning and getting better.”
