It’s been a while, but the Chesterton softball team picked up right where it
The Trojans pounded out 15 hits and made short work of South Bend Washington
in a 16-3 five-inning victory on Saturday.
“It was very cold, but it just felt good to be playing again instead of
being inside,” Chesterton coach LouAnn Hopson said.
After Mallory McKee and Sydney Cooley reached in the top of the first, Megan
Matheny’s two-run single plated both for the game’s first two runs. Matheny
later scored on a Megan Tymorek sacrifice fly.
In the second, the Trojans sent nine batters to the plate and garnered five
hits en route to four runs. McKee and Sarah Richards each recorded doubles
in the frame.
The onslaught continued in the third as Chesterton sent 13 batters to the
plate to the tune of nine runs on six hits and four walks. Tymorek had a
two-run double to end the scoring.
“Offensively, we did what we wanted to - hit the ball hard,” Hopson said.
“It was nice to blow a little of the dust and rust off our game and we had
an opportunity to let other people play.”
Offensively, McKee, Cooley, Matheny and Tymorek each had three RBI’s. Cooley
worked all five innings for the Trojans and garnered the victory by
scattering five hits.
