CHS Softball blasts South Bend Washington

Back to Front Page


With all the rain outs last week, the bats for the Chesterton Softball team must’ve been itching to come out.

They certainly did on Saturday as the Trojans pounded out 17 hits and scored 11 runs in the fourth inning on their way to a 15-3 win at South Bend Washington.

The Trojans built a 3-0 lead with an offensive outburst in the second inning led off by a Mallory McKee double. Jeannette Sosnowski singled to left and Sammie Howard’s bunt single loaded the bases.

A two-out single by Heather Overla plated the first two runs and Sydney Cooley’s RBI single made it 3-0.

That was minimal damage compared to sending 16 batters to the plate in the fourth inning and scoring 11 runs thanks in part to seven Chesterton hits and three South Bend Washington errors.

McKee, Megan Matheny and Cooley all had three hits. Matheny and Overla each had three RBI’s in the win.

Taylor Harlow got the win after striking out four and allowing seven hits in five innings of work.

Junior Varsity

Michigan City 8, Chesterton 7

A few costly errors doomed the Chesterton junior varsity as they dropped an 8-7 decision to Michigan City last Thursday.

The Trojans had the bases loaded in the top of the seventh inning, but couldn’t push the game-tieing run across the plate.

Olivia Gonzales, Braelyn Molenda and Lisette Martinez had two singles each, while Alexis King had two doubles and an RBI.

King worked the complete game in the circle for the Trojans and struck out two.

CHS 13, SB Washington 0

The Trojans had little trouble in picking up a 13-0 victory on Saturday.

Jessica Stacy pitched for the Trojans only giving up three hits and no walks in getting the win.

Amanda Dujmovich tripled and had two RBI’s, while Kayleigh Dover had a single and reached base three times. Also getting a hit and rbi(s) were Shelby Carter and Sierra LaFreniere.
