Gimme 5: Oak Forest's Norton Heading to Radford
Bengals' senior pitching standout will leave with many awards and accomplishments tucked safely under her softball belt.
Oak Forest senior pitcher Emily Norton has piled up the awards and accomplishments over her career as a Bengal. Most prominent among those include being a state champion and the Illinois Gatorade Player of the Year in 2009.
“It was awesome," Norton said. "That doesn’t happen to a lot of people, so it was definitely an honor."
After leading her team this year, she will play at Radford University in Virginia. She is thinking she wants to study interior design, but still has options open.
