Vikings beat Prairie Ridge 5-2
NAPERVILLE – Jack LaManna admitted it was difficult to stay focused as he sat on the bench last season.
LaManna, a rising senior at Geneva, sat behind graduated center fielder Jackson Chase on varsity this past spring.
"You don't know when you're going to get in or what opportunity you're going to get [on the bench]," LaManna said following Geneva's 5-2 victory over Prairie Ridge in the Phil Lawler summer state tournament on Monday.
The Vikings advanced to play at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at North Central. The top two teams from each four-team pool advance to the state tournament semifinals Wednesday.
