MARENGO – As a freshman, Hannah Theobald played in the Class 3A State Tournament as part of the Kaneland softball squad that finished third.
Three years later and now a senior, Theobald and the Knights are one win away from a return trip to state.
Kaneland (25-7) will face Vernon Hills (18-18) at home in the Class 4A Maple Park Super-Sectional, 4:30 p.m. Monday.
"I think this is the perfect year to go to state," Theobald said. "I think we have a lot of talent and I think this group of girls is going to make us super proud."
