Back To Front Page


The Chesterton softball team improved to 3-1 on the season after pounding out 18 hits in a 15-0 whitewash of Hanover Central on Friday.

It was great to see everyone hitting tonight,” Chesterton coach LouAnn Hopson said.

The Trojans got things going right away with a leadoff home run from Shelby Grimm. Kristi Stevenson followed with the first of her three doubles and Lexi Benko singled.

Stevenson scored on Micaela Iacovetti’s sacrifice ahead of a single by Lauren Anderson. Benko scored on Cassidy Grimm’s RBI single.

Courtesy runner Noelle Nichael scored on a single by Faith Matta. Cassidy Grimm scored on a double steal and Matta finished the scoring on an RBI single from Kari LaFreniere for a 6-0 lead.

Stevenson reached on an error in the second as the lead grew to 7-0 when she scored on Anderson’s RBI single.

In the third, Matta and LaFreniere singled. Shelby Grimm’s sacrifice fly plated Matta. LaFreniere scored on Snemis’s sacrifice.

Stevenson doubled and scored when Benko doubled for a 9-0 lead.

We got a lot of production from the eight and nine spot with Matta and LaFreniere tonight,” Hopson said.

The Trojans put the finishing touches on the win in the fourth as Edmonds, Matta and Michael all singled. Edmonds scored on Shelby Grimm’s sacrifice fly.

Matta scored on a double by Snemis, while Michael scored on Stevenson’s double. Anderson plated Stevenson with the game’s final run.

Matta, Anderson (2 RBI’s) and Stevenson (3 doubles, 3 RBI’s) all had three hits to lead the offense, while LaFreniere and Benko each added two hits.

Anderson picked up the victory with five innings of work, allowing just one hit and striking out eight.

It was good to see Lauren have a good outing on the mound,” Hopson said.

Chesterton returns to the field on Tuesday when they travel to Crown Point for a 4:30 p.m. first pitch.
