Lady RedHawks enjoy four-win week
Marist was nearly perfect last week.
Only a loss to Bishop McNamara spoiled an otherwise successful week for the Lady RedHawks, who also defeated the Lady Fightin’ Irish while recording wins over Lockport and New Trier as well. The latter was swept in a Saturday doubleheader.
The week opened with a wild 15-12 victory over Bishop Mac. Spearheading Marist’s potent offense were Madison Naujokas and Brooke Wyderski, who combined to go 7-for-8 with seven RBI and six runs scored. Naujokas included a pair of homers among her five hits, while Wyderski went deep once.
Wyderski slammed her 10th homer of the year on Thursday and also belted a pair of doubles, which lifted the Lady RedHawks to a 5-1 triumph over the Lady Porters. Also aiding Marist’s cause were Vanessa Villasenor (two hits), Brooke Wilson (RBI triple, one run) and pitcher Zariya Gonzalez, who fired a four-hitter to enable Marist bounce back from Tuesday’s 6-2 loss to Bishop Mac.
Wyderski was an unstoppable force versus New Trier as she was retired just once in seven at-bats. Four of her six hits went for extra bases — two homers and two doubles — and she ended the day with eight RBI and five runs.
With Wyderski leading the way, the Lady RedHawks (20-7-1) beat the Lady Trevians 4-2 and 10-7. Villasenor knocked in the tiebreaking run in Game 1 with her eighth-inning single.
