Tremont High School advanced to IHSA Class 2A State Finals with a 6-3 victory over the Peru (St. Bede) Lady Bruins. Tremont gave up its first run of the postseason when Lainie Schweickert’s RBI infield hit ended Jaycee Craver’s streak of 35 consecutive scoreless innings. The sophomore pitcher  (22-0) struck out five, walked six, scattered five hits, and gave up two earned runs. Senior Kali Sanders put the Turks ahead for good with a two-out RBI double in the second. Briley Spencer then followed Sanders with a two-out, RBI double of her own for a 3-1 lead. Tremont added three more insurance runs over the next two innings. Brooke Bolliger gave Tremont a pair of RBI extra-base hits in the third and fifth innings. The junior outfielder’s double scored Haley McCloud, who reached on a hit-by-a-pitch and stole second. The Turks (29-0) will meet Kankakee Bishop McNamara (34-0) at 1:00 p.m. Sunday.
