Bill Harrison from the Sun Times gives a note about Lane Softball

"No. 2. Lane has turned the corner. George Stavrakas’ team has won 17 in a row and is expected to have a dominant showing in this week’s Public League playoffs. After starting 0-5, the Indians have amassed a 23-9 record. Junior Emily Espinosa (.529, five home runs, 21 RBI) and freshman Kayla Garcia (.510, eight home runs, 48 RBI) have led the way offensively. “I have never had a 1-2 punch like this in my lineup,” Stavrakas said."
