Varsity Softball Headed Down the Home Stretch
by Caroline McCammond on Friday, May 16th, 2014
The 2014 Varsity Softball season has been a rebuilding year for the Mustangs. Despite a record of 2-5-0, the team is ready to do what it takes to strongly finish out the season and set a competitive tone for next spring.
After graduating five starters last year, the Mustangs welcomed many new and talented players onto the team for the 2014 spring season. What the team lacks in experience it undoubtedly makes up for in determination. Head Coach Amy Hickey describes the squad as “dedicated, hard-working, enthusiastic, and eager to reestablish themselves as a force in the ISL.” Illness, injury, and inconsistency on the mound have proven big hurdles for the Mustangs this season, but these challenges have not stopped the tidal wave of energy and optimism on the team.
Each game demonstrates the resolve of the softball team, whether the score reflects it or not. A highlight of the season was the recent game against Governor’s. Despite the final score of 0-11, the Mustangs played a great defensive game. Ashley Adelberg (III) leaped over a fence to catch a grand slam ball, proving that not even a literal, physical barrier can stop the ‘Stangs from giving their all in every game.
With the end of the season almost here, the Softball team looks forward to applying what it has learned to the remaining league games and to the Big East tournament on May 17th at Andover. Whether it is stealing a base or diving over fences, the Milton Varsity Softball team is determined to make its mark.
