Open Bike Night:
Tomorrow night kids can head over to Safety Town for their first Open Bike Night of the summer. The Naperville Police Department and the Naperville Junior Woman’s Club sponsor the event to give children between the ages of three and 10 the chance to practice their riding, follow signs and signals, and even get checked for proper helmet-fit. Open Bike Nights will be held every Wednesday in June, as well as July 12, 19 and 26, and August 2.
Benet vs. St. Viator:
Benet Academy and Neuqua Valley were both playing in the supersectionals last night, hoping to advance to state.
The Redwings took on St. Viator just down the road at North Central College. The game was scoreless after the first two innings, but the Lions offense roared to life in the third, putting eight runs across the board. Benet would not give up, scoring three runs in the 6th, but it would not be enough. St. Viator will head to state for the 2nd straight season after a 13 to 4 win. Benet finishes its season with 25 wins and its first sectional title since 1989.
Neuqua vs. St. Laurence:
Neuqua Valley hoped for better luck as the Wildcats faced St. Laurence in the Crestwood supersectional. It was a pitchers dual for the first five innings as the game was knotted up at one, but the Vikings broke through in the 6th, scoring four runs off of Neuqua’s ace, James Kulak. The Wildcats were unable to get anything going off Angel Sandoval, as St. Laurence moves on to the state semi finals, winning the game 5 to 1. Neuqua Valley ends its season with an incredible record of 35 and 2, tying a program record for wins in a season.
