Megan Keegan is hitting bombs! In her last game, the Elk Grove junior showed off her power, going 2-2 with a 3-run home run! Nice job Megan!
Donny “Donny Kong” Kwasigroch is a new man! After trying his hand at track and field for St. Isaac’s last spring and running a 7 minute mile, Donny has shaved almost a full minute off his time- down to a 6:06! Next time he’ll be under 6! Great work Donny!
Nick Burdi and Matt Wivinis are a two-headed monster for the pitching staff of DGS high school! The team is in Arizona for spring break and they are putting on a show! Burdi threw 5 innings today with 10 k’s, gave up 1 run and hit 97 mph. Wivinis got the win yesterday against the #1 team in the nation with 7 innings, 6 k’s and 1 run. These guys are untouchable!
The Downers Grove Outlaws knew they had a player in Emily York, they just didn’t know how good. In last weekend’s U14 softball tournament in Ft.
