Hinsdale South's 2013 spring sports highlight reel
Baseball conference title, softball regional title top list of spring's memorable moments
The spring sports season saw a slew of memorable moments for Hinsdale South athletes. Here are some of the biggest highlights for the Hornets.
16-2: Hornets' West Suburban Gold record this spring. They swept their opponents in five of six WSG series.
Highlight: Winning a conference title in any sport is never easy, and defending a conference title is even harder. Yet that's precisely what Hinsdale South's baseball team did this spring. With conference pitchers Mike Rizzo, Mike Marrera and Matt Reschke leading the way, the Hornets defended the West Suburban Gold title they won last spring by scoring 10 or more runs in seven of their 16 wins in the conference.

4: West Suburban Gold all-conference players for South: Jessica Buckridge, Lauren Cairo, Sabrina Kuchta and Emily Mihalkanin.
Highlight: It wasn't a great start to the season for the Hornets, who got out to an 0-5 start and were 3-8 after falling to Downers Grove South in mid-April. But that rocky start was long forgotten by the time the postseason rolled around. After falling to Lyons Township late in the season, the Hornets turned around and outlasted the Lions 5-3 in nine innings in a regional semifinal game, then went on to win a regional title with a 2-1 victory over Mother McAuley.
