Back To Front Page


The Chesterton softball team scored four runs in the sixth inning to pick up an 11-6 non-conference win at New Prairie on Saturday.

The Trojans opened the scoring in the top of the first as Lexi Benko singled and moved to second on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Micaela Iacovetti. Lauren Kobialka’s RBI single to left plated Benko for a 1-0 lead.

New Prairie answered back with four runs in the second off of Chesterton starter Kobialka, but the Trojans responded with three runs in the third to tie the game at 4-4.

Benko reached on a fielder’s choice and Iacovetti singled ahead of Kaitlyn Carr’s three-run home run.

In the fourth, Marney Sisson double to start the frame and moved to third on Jenna Vagner’s ground out. Maddie Snemis reached on an error as Sisson scored.

Following a walk to Benko, Iacovetti doubled to plate Snemis for a 6-4 Trojan lead.

New Prairie answered with one run of their own before Chesterton got the bats going again in the sixth.

Vagner reached on an error to start the inning and Snemis hit a misplayed ball into left field that brought Vagner all the way home. Iacovetti hit a two-out pop fly that was dropped in the infield that scored Snemis.

Kobialka took full advantage with a two-run home run to center field.

Another run by New Prairie was followed by a solo run from the Trojans in the seventh to set the final score. After a leadoff walk, Snemis would eventually score on a sacrifice fly from Iacovetti.

Benko picked up the win for the Trojans in the pitching circle with three innings of work (3 strikeouts). Kobialka worked the first three innings (5 strikeouts) and Kaitlyn Carr tallied one inning of work.

Chesterton returns to the field on Tuesday when they host Lake Central beginning at 4:30 p.m.
