MAPLE PARK – Hannah Theobald was a light-hitting freshman first baseman for the Kaneland softball team in 2015, but she started for the Knights in the Class 3A state tournament.
On Friday, Theobald and the Knights are back in the state tourney. This time, the senior first baseman is anything but light-hitting.
“It’s really hard to get back,” Theobald said. “The past couple years we’ve had girls come and go, so I knew that it would be tough. But I’m ecstatic. I think it’s awesome.”
