The OPRF softball team wrapped up its own regional last week by annihilating two Chicago Public League schools by a total score of 19-0. The victories advanced the Huskies (29-6), last year's State runner-up team, into the St. Ignatius Sectional where they'll face Elmwood Park today (Wednesday, 4:15 p.m.) at UIC.
The OPRF girls' soccer team battled through injuries and shutout Lincoln Park 3-0 with a depleted roster on Saturday in the Huskies' first game of sectionals. They were led with goals from Laura Bach, Sarah Bunch, and Jenny Donley.
