Roney thrilled to be back playing the sport she loves

Roney focuses in on throwing the next pitch.

MERIDIAN, Ill. (WAND) -- Calla Roney hasn't had the easiest season.

It all came to a halt when she collided at first base.

She thought it was a torn ACL but it turned out to be a torn ligament in the back of her knee.

Roney, who will play softball at Illinois next year, has battled her way back and is making an impact for Windsor/Stewardson-Strasburg.

The Hatchets are looking for their second straight state championship.
