Stimson Softball Posts Undefeated Season

It would be remarkable enough for any team to end their season 10-0, but perhaps what’s most remarkable about the Stimson softball team is that they are made up almost entirely of seventh graders. “This is a great group of girls,” said Coach Andrea Orlando. “Besides the obvious physical talent, this group possesses great attitudes, which makes for a fun season.” 

Stimson’s team is led by captains Laura Altieri, who alternates between second and third base, and Melissa Triolo, who alternates between shortstop and third base. Alexa Del Colle, playing first base and at times right field, had an incredible season at the plate.

Other players who really stepped up big were Taylor Epstein, one of the strongest pitchers Coach Orlando has seen; Danielle Barbarito, playing right/center Field; Sarah Glaser, the team's catcher; and Amanda Glaser, who alternates between second base and shortstop.

Coach Orlando and Assistant Coach Joe Arcuri would like to thank the girls' parents for showing so much dedication and support. With only one team member graduating to Whitman, next season looks very promising for Stimson softball.
