Inaction the primary action for Benet softball

LISLE — What would Sir Isaac Newton say about this?

The man who wrote that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction might have to revise his theories after looking at Benet’s softball team.

For most of the season, the only constant for the Redwings has been inaction. They’ve had seven games canceled or rescheduled so far this season, and as of Monday they hadn’t played a game since April 9.

“It’s getting to the point now that if we have to cancel games we might not be able to reschedule them,” Benet coach Jerry Schilf said.

Last Wednesday, Schilf and his players got 50 minutes of time in Benet’s gym. There was no practice and no game the next day. When Friday’s game against Plainfield Central was canceled the Redwings, currently sporting a 6-1 record, practiced for a while on their outfield grass, and when Saturday’s doubleheader with Joliet Catholic was called off, Schilf declined to practice since so many players were already occupied with ACT testing.

“Right now, with the weather, it’s conceivable we won’t play again until Saturday,” Schilf said Monday. “The thing is we’ve had so much practice the kids are getting bored since we’ve had to practice inside all the time.”
