Cobras baseball starts march to national title

CHAMPAIGN — Parkland baseball has imposed a 24-hour rule following big wins late in the season.

The Cobras allow themselves to celebrate the win for one day. Just 24 hours. Then it’s on to the next goal.

'Never a dull moment' with Parkland's Stokowski

Cody Sedlock, a junior right-hander for coach Dan Hartleb’s program, took home the honor on Tuesday, becoming the fifth pitcher in Illinois history to do so.
