For sophomore Hailey Malito, hitting in the number two spot in Lincoln-Way East’s lineup makes for a pretty simple mission: get on base, and someone will drive her in.

“It boosts my confidence when everyone is hitting,” Malito said. “I know if the people in front of me hit and the people behind me hit, we can keep it going.

“We’re putting the ball in play and we’re moving runners. We don’t leave many people on base, which is huge.”
