Trojan Softball returns with a win in South Bend

Back To Front Page

It’s been a while, but the Chesterton softball team picked up right where it left off.

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.
