KANELAND—KHS softball was able to get itself into a groove at the late juncture of the regular season, and just in time.
Navigating its way through numerous cancellations and postponements two weeks ago, the Lady Knights were able to see action against Morris on May 21, winning 6-0 and facing off against host Rosary in a doubleheader to put a final note on the regular season, sweeping both morning contests on Saturday before beating West Aurora 1-0 in the afternoon.
KHS sits at 19-11 and finishes the Northern Illinois Big XII conference season at 7-3.
Angie Morrow won the game over the Morris Redskins, who dropped to 18-9, and allowed just two hits on the afternoon.
Courtney Davis excelled in the pitchers’ circle for the Game 1 win over the Royals, while Shannon Herra took the Game 2 win.
In the win over the Blackhawks, Morrow earned his second win in four days.
Up next for Kaneland was the Wednesday, May 28, meeting as part of the Burlington Central Regional as the No. 2 seed against No. 3 Genoa-Kingston. The Lady Knights-Cogs matchup was for the right to face BC, Hampshire or Sycamore in the Saturday, May 31, championship at 10 a.m. Results weren’t available at press time.
A year ago, Kaneland’s six-run rally against Rosary fell short in the final inning in the Rosary Regional title game.
