The Chesterton softball team dropped its first Duneland Athletic Conference
decision in a 9-0 defeat at Crown Point on Friday.
“We could probably make up a million valid excuses, but the bottom line is
they hit the ball hard and we didn’t,” Chesterton coach LouAnn Hopson said.”
Megan Tymorek picked up two hits and Megan Matheny got one hit for the
Trojan offense. Tymorek worked four innings and struck out three before
being replaced by Sydney Cooley (2 innings, 0 strikeouts).
“It was a long week for sure,” Hopson said. “This week is going to be just
as long. Tonight (at home against Portage) will be a test for our girls to
see if they can rebound. They are tough and determined.”
Miranda Elish allowed just three hits by the Trojan offense and struck out
five for the Bulldogs. Elish also tallied a 2-for-3 day at the plate with a
204 030 x - 9 13 1
