DeKALB – Kaneland junior pitcher Angie Morrow threw a one-hitter against Batavia on Monday as the Knights softball team topped the Bulldogs, 4-0, in an indoor game at the DeKalb Sports and Recreation Center.
“I just thought she hit her spots real well today,” Kaneland coach Brian Willis said of Morrow. “She kept Batavia’s hitters off-balance all day long. They got one single off her, so I think that was key, just hitting her spots.”
Kaneland’s Lanie Callaghan went 2 of 3 with a double and an RBI and Willis credited Hayley Contorno with a couple key bunts.
Kaneland (3-0) has played three indoor games – also sweeping Riverside-Brookfield in a doubleheader – and now turns its attention to a spring break trip to Tennessee. Willis said the Knights are guaranteed four games in the tournament and could play as many as six.
“I think everybody is excited all the way from the coaching staff down to to the last player, we just want to get outside, and it’s supposed to be nice weather out there according to the weatherman,” Willis said.
