Varsity Head Coach Ralph Miranda shared some thoughts about his graduating senior players:

Lauren Civello: Lauren is always there to pick up her teammates when they're down, and acts as a role model for the younger players coming up.

Sarah Glaser: Sarah is a tremendous competitor who is always calm, cool, and collected regardless of the situation at hand.

Danielle Barbarito: Danielle's positive attitude allows the team to stay relaxed even in tough situations.

Melissa Triolo: Melissa's knowledge of the game is an asset for our team. She always has a plan in mind, whether she is in the field or at the plate.

Taylor Epstein: Taylor kept us in every game she pitched in this season. Not only does she knows what to pitch in each scenario, but she is able to execute her pitches when necessary.

“This group of seniors will be greatly missed for both their on and off the field contributions to the softball program. We wish them the best in the their future endeavors.”
