Travelers Go 3-1 in Cats Classic


The Wheaton Travelers 14-and-under softball team competed in the Swinging Cats Classic in West Chicago last weekend. The Travelers posted a 3-1 record with one game yet to be played.

The Travelers opened Saturday's pool play with a 9-6 win over the Palatine Panthers. Kelly Cosgrove pitched a complete game, striking out 3 and walking 5 over 6 innings. Stacie Frey scored 4 of the team's 9 runs by going 2 for 2 at the plate with 2 walks and 2 RBIs.

Katie Wiesbrook reached on an error in the first inning and later scored. Wiesbrook also recorded 7 putouts on defense. Sarah Kinsella went 1 for 3 with the bat with 1 RBI.

Becky Gonzalez went 1 for 1 with 2 walks and scored once. Christie Stock and Romberg were both hit by pitches and each scored once. Meredith Schweitzer coaxed 2 walks and scored both times. …
