Waubonsie Valley graduate and Saint Xavier University senior Aly Kelley had five hits and two RBIs on Thursday, helping her team win two games to advance to the championship game of the NAIA Region VII tournament.
Kelley was named to the All-Region VII team on Thursday. She was previously named the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference tournament MVP and the CCAC player of the year.
Saint Xavier must beat Olivet Nazarene twice on Friday to win the tournament. Last weekend, Olivet Nazarene swept Saint Xavier in the finals of the CCAC tournament.
