ST. CHARLES – St. Charles North’s Riley Coomes reached base three times and Tim Misner had a two-run double Monday as the North Stars baseball team knocked off South Elgin, 6-4, in Upstate Eight Conference crossover play.
North (8-7, 4-3 UEC River) prevailed despite being outhit, 11-8. The North Stars threw three pitchers at the Storm, with PJ O’Brien (12/3 IP, one unearned run) earning the win in relief of Sawyer Chambers.
The makeup game, which had been rescheduled for May 3, was moved to Monday when North’s original foe for Monday, York, had to reschedule, North coach Todd Genke said.
The York game will be played today in St. Charles, weather-permitting.

IHSA Shabbona Lake Sectional: At Shabbona, a boat from Indian Creek caught the lone keeper of the day in a frustrating tournament that included seven Chronicle-area schools. Batavia caught a “short fish” – shy of the 12-inch minimum – earlier in the day, Marmion coach Joe Large said, but only Indian Creek earned a berth to the state tournament in May.
This marked the first time in five Shabbona Lake sectionals that fewer than three boats moved on.
