Trojan Softball stays perfect in DAC

Back To Front Page

Mother Nature let up just enough on Tuesday night for the Chesterton softball team to improve to 4-0 in Duneland Athletic Conference play with a 6-0 victory over Valparaiso.

“We looked a little rusty with the bats,” Chesterton coach LouAnn Hopson said. “We haven’t been outside with live pitching in a week. I thought the girls did a great job of staying focused and things eventually came around.”

The Trojans opened the scoring in the second inning when Megan Tymorek reached on a fielders choise and Jill Bohnert walked. Amanda Dujmovich’s single plated courtesy runner Bailey Slivka with the game’s first run.

“Amanda had a great night at the plate,” Hopson said. “Because of all of the rain, the field was very soft. A lot of the stuff we hit hard that normally goes through on the ground, slowed down and became playable.”

Sarah Richards reached on an error to score Bohnert for a 2-0 lead.

The final touches offensively came in the sixth inning as Sierra LaFreniere reached on an error. She went to second on a sacrifice bunt and third on a Shelby Carter infield single.

Sydney Cooley’s single scored both runners before Megan Matheny singled. Tymorek’s double scored Cooley and Matheny scored on Bohnert’s single.

Tymorek went all seven innings to get the win allowing just two hits and striking out eight.

“Megan had another nice night on the mound and the defense made the plays we needed them to make,” Hopson said.
