Acton Boxborough Youth Softball 2015 Open House
Swing into Spring Events !!
February 27th & March 6th - @ AtBats
Spring is right around the corner. Once again, we look forward to a great year of softball. To get the year started, we invite you to our free annual Open House sponsored by AtBats and led by the A-B High School Varsity team. This is a great opportunity for returning players to get ”back into the swing” and for new and potential players to get a chance to see what youth softball is all about. League registration is not required, and all Acton-Boxborough girls are welcome to attend. We encourage your daughters to bring their friends!
The young 2014 Acton-Boxborough U10 Lightning team had a great summer season. The girls started the season against a very experienced Littleton team; impressed by their opponent’s performance the Lightning team quickly learned how the game was to be played. At the following game the Lightning picked up their first win against Lexington. The team worked hard and continued to play good softball but falling short a few runs early on in the season led to some close loses. By mid-July the confident Lightning team found their stride as they went undefeated in the last 5 games of the season. The team’s pitching was led by Taylor Flannery, Michelle Mazzu, and Maya Benway. Together the three girls logged 115 strike outs in the books. Rebecca Kniker, Lily Newcombe and Jessica Fredricks controlled the game with strong protection behind the plate. Cailey Ryan and Elsa Grant managed the corners of the field at 1st and 3rd while great infielding by Sarah Verner, Kathleen Mazzu, Song Leav, Jenny Baum and Lauren Baum closed the gaps. All of the girls were making contact with the ball towards the end of the season, driving in runs with excitement and stealing bases with pride. Congratulations to our young Lightning team for an impressive season!
