SB advances to semis before falling

NFV freshman Zaida Moore learns the hard way what is meant be a “hard tag” – even if the fielder doesn’t have the ball – during Wednesday’s Class 3A playoff game against Union. The TigerHawk dropped a pair of sacrifice bunts during the game. She was safe on his one, and the other brought fellow freshman Alyssa Bohr home all the way from first for NFV’s final run of the 4-2 win. (Jerry Wadian photo)

NFV softball barely hung onto its UIC lead last week, but rallied to sweep Clayton Ridge.

The Eagles threw a scare into the TigerHawks on Monday, June 24.

The visitors jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first inning while the first five NFV batters went down in order.

Abby Reichter broke the string when she clobbered a pitch over the fence in left for her third homer of the season. A tall fan had to stretch his hand up to grab the ball as it sailed for parts unknown.

CR came right back for a run in the third to lead, 3-1. NFV had closed to 3-2 on an RBI single by Julie Mackey when lightning was spotted to the north.
