As the 2014 high school softball season began in March, one thing still haunted Crown Point pitcher Miranda Elish: The last game of last season.
He may have been only a first-year head coach, but Richard Sobilo knew plenty about Bishop Noll softball, thanks to his daughter, Elena, being a player on the team.

CEDAR LAKE | The last game of last season still lingers in the back of Ashley Yoways’ mind.

WHEATFIELD | To call the Kankakee Valley softball team and the athletic community resilient is quite an understatement.
LAPORTE | It’s hard for high school kids not to look ahead when the biggest game of the regular season is still coming up while the toughest loss of the season is fresh in their memories.
