Softball: Jacobs drops season opener to Palatine

Golden Eagles’ senior Taylor Stennett hits home run in 1st at-bat of season

Palatine’s Grace Adame beats the tag of Jacob’s Isla Vicari as she dives back into second base during a non-conference softball game Monday, March 20, 2023, at Palatine High School.

My first at-bat, I was really excited. I tried to take a nice easy swing, and it just kind of cracked off [the bat]. The wind helped a bit, but that was nice.
