Kaneland, Softball, Junior
Why she was selected: Threw a no-hitter in Kaneland's 3-0 win over Geneva on Saturday
Kaneland junior pitcher Angie Morrow arrived in Maple Park with quite a reputation after committing as an underclassman to play collegiately at Wisconsin. Morrow, a Burlington Central transfer, delivered on the buzz in Game 1 of a doubleheader against host Geneva on Saturday, firing a no-hitter against the Vikings. Morrow, who also threw a no-hitter as a freshman at Central, is the Kane County Chronicle-St. Charles Bank & Trust Athlete of the Week. She spoke with Chronicle sports editor Jay Schwab after Saturday's gem. The following is an edited transcript:
Do you feel fully acclimated to your new team by this stage of the season?
Yeah, definitely. We're really close outside of softball so I think it helps because we bond really well with the whole team.
What did you consider your go-to pitch [Saturday], and in general?
My drop-ball definitely has been working really well for me and that's what's been creating the ground balls, so that's my go-to.
If you had to pick one teammate to help you with some difficult homework, who would it be and why?
Lexi Roach because I think she would make me calm down and just figure it out, and she's really smart, too. She's always smiling and she's always happy, too, so she'd definitely be the one I'd pick.
