That, Emily Schultz didn't need reminding of.
As a sophomore, she and many of this current group led Oswego East to its first regional title, but lost to Bolingbrook in the sectional semifinal. This win puts the Wolves in a regional final at 11 a.m. Saturday with top-seeded Plainfield North.
"I just wanted to win this game, no matter what," said Schultz, a Stanford recruit.
She made sure of it.
Leading off the third inning, with the Wolves (25-5) already ahead 2-0, Schultz hit a low liner that just cleared the fence in center for a solo homer off Downers Grove North's Savannah Rodriguez.
