Comets Cruise to Regional Final

Stew-Stras/Windsor softball (19-6) didn’t let St. Elmo/Brownstown sneak up on them in the regional semi on Tuesday. The Comets cruised to a 6-1 win.

Stew-Stras/Windsor scalded St. Elmo a week ago, 10-1. Becca Schlechte threw that win. Then they lost to St. E/B on Tuesday, 8-3, with Schlechte on the mound.

This time they sent Kendall Knop to the circle. Kendall Knop ran her record to 12-4, allowing five hits in seven innings, but just one run, while ringing up three.

St. Elmo drew first blood with a run right off the bat in the 1st, then held SS/W scoreless in the 1st. But, the Eagle couldn’t contain the Comets in the 2nd. SS/W doubled up St. E/B and came back for another run in the 3rd.

After that early Eagle run, the Comets shut down St. Elmo, keeping them scoreless in the final six innings. Meanwhile, leading 3-1 in the 5th, the Comets added another insurance run. In the 6th, they extended to the 5-run lead with another two runs.

Senior Courtney Schultz, headed to college on a softball scholarship, led the attack hitting 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs. Lindsay Burton was 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Madison Quast drove in two more runs and Bayleigh Tabor was 1-for-2 with another double.

Stew-Stras/Windsor (#2) plays Altamont (#1) in the Altamont Regional final on Saturday at 11 a.m.
