Prep roundup: Spartans’ three HRs not enough

The Sycamore baseball team hit back-to-back-to-back home runs on Monday against Morris, but lost, 12-7.

Davey Scholz, Alec Kozak and Mitchell Jordan hit home runs one after the other, but on a day with 30 mph winds blowing out, the game featured seven home runs. Sycamore (7-6, 1-3 Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference) starter Matt Godinsky gave up four home runs in the loss.

“We had chances in all the other innings,” Sycamore coach Jason Cavanaugh said.

Royals win easily: Dutch Schneeman picked up his first win of the season, shutting out LaMoille and striking out 11 in a 15-0, five-inning victory for Hinckley-Big Rock. Mitch Ruh led the Royals (8-9, 5-0 Little Ten Conference), going 4 for 4 with two doubles and four RBIs.

Bobcats upend T’wolves: At Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva, Somonauk beat Indian Creek, 9-2. Jake Morsch got the win for the Bobcats (13-2, 5-0 LTC), striking out eight and allowing one hit in six innings. Indian Creek fell to 5-11 overall and 3-4 in LTC play.

Hawks win in 6: Will Corn was a triple shy of the cycle and added four RBIs in an 11-1, six-inning Hiawatha victory against Earlville. Tyler Burger picked up the win on the mound for the Hawks (5-9, 3-3 LTC). Nick Doolittle had three hits and two RBIs.


Hawks fall to Earlville: Despite 14 strikeouts from pitcher Ashley Tamraz, Hiawatha lost to Earlville, 4-2. The Hawks (5-9, 2-4 LTC) were led at the plate by Tatiana Spung, who was 2 for 4 with a triple, a double and an RBI.

Bobcats defeat IC: Somonauk defeated Indian Creek, 8-2. Indian Creek is 3-14 and 2-3 in the LTC.

Indians win in 5: Sandwich got five RBIs from Hannah Prucha in a 12-1, five-inning victory against Plano. Morgan Murphy struck out six in the win (7-11, 3-2 Interstate Eight Conference). Delaney Voss added two RBIs for Sandwich.


Cogs blank North Boone: Genoa-Kingston defeated North Boone, 6-0, allowing only one shot on net. Shannon Schumacher had a hat trick for the Cogs (6-5, 2-2 Big Northern). Ariel Rylko scored twice and Ashley Grimm added a goal.

“We did a good job controlling the game today,” G-K coach Randy Tate said. “Ariel Rylko played well in the midfield along with Ashley Grimm. They were able to push the ball forward and our strikers were able to get several shots on frame.”

Taylor paces Knights: Katie Taylor scored twice and had an assist in Kaneland’s 3-0 win against Marengo. The Knights (4-3-1) also got a goal from Taylor Opperman.


Barbs win huge: DeKalb lost only three games the entire meet in a 14-1 defeat of Larkin. Straight-set winners in singles included Brooke Wilson, Jaci Nguyen, Sandy Merales, Tristan Draper and Shistine Peterson.

“We played very aggressive in singles, and that’s what you need to do,” DeKalb coach Duane Cowley said. “That was a pleasure to see.”


The Indian Creek boys and girls track meets at Stillman Valley were postponed to 4 p.m. today because of high winds.
