Season End Recap

Senior Strong

The 2019 Varsity Softball team had a successful season when using win/loss metrics, finishing 8-4 and earning another trip to the Western New England Class B Tournament. Anchored by a strong senior class, including Sarah Fallon ’19, Gabby Garcia ’19, Liz Helmin ’19, and Cecelia Petrarca ’19 who combined gave 18 years to the program, the team defeated Founders League opponents Taft, Kingswood-Oxford, and Loomis-Chaffee.

Throughout the season, the team suffered four losses in the last inning, including a tournament semi-final game at Cushing. The manner in which losses occurred were character-building defeats, and arguably character is developed more so in losses than through wins. “Watching this team grow as individuals and as a group was an experience I wish everyone could share,” said Head Coach John Monagan. “You can get caught up in the way we lost our games, which certainly were devastating, but instead I look at this group and what they put into their positions. I couldn’t be more proud of them.”
