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!
