Softball Wraps Up
by Anthony Scurto on Friday, June 7th, 2013
Milton Academy’s varsity softball team wrapped up their season on last Tuesday at Nobles, falling to the Bulldogs in a hard-fought 3-6 loss. The game resumed after heavy downpours suspended action on Friday, May 25th. The team finished the season once again with a winning record and picked up where last year’s powerhouse left off. This team, poised for success, had 5 seniors returning and numerous other players from the previous season.
Captains Delany Flynn (I) and Sophia Tsanotelis (I) led the Mustangs this year both offensively and defensively . Both players had batting averages well over .500, with Flynn at .588 for the season while Tsanotelis had an equally impressive .514 batting average. Combined, these two captains hit 11 home runs. Delaney had 29 runs batted in and also notched 7 homeruns for the Mustangs, while being a mainstay at shortstop throughout the season. Tsanotelis played the hot corner at third base and proved to be a versatile player. She occasionally pitched when the team was in the need of an arm. She led the team through a walk-off thriller versus Lawrence Academy.
Anna DiGravio (IV) carried the pitching staff this season. DiGravio, though new to the team, was consistent every time she took the mound. She will be even better next year after all the experience she garnered this year. The team has a number of freshmen and sophomores so this young core of player makes a bright future for the Mustangs.
