St. Stephen's Lady Eagles Softball Team Has Incaredible Undefeated Season - June 2012

Click photo for larger view.

    What a year. What a team. The St. Stephen’s softball team won the division after an undefeated season. Going into the season without an experienced pitcher, things were not looking promising. But hard work and determination turned the 2012 season into one to remember. It all started with the leadership of 8th graders Laura Bierbrauer, Hannah Panzica, Emily Westfall and Brigid White who not only played great defense and were strong batters, but came ready to play hard every game. Eighth graders, and third year players Grace and Alexis Fredricks (A.K.A. Twin Towers of Power) also had outstanding seasons including hitting home runs in almost every game including several grand slams. Seventh graders included Rachel Colan who played flawlessly in her usual position as catcher, but also became extremely valuable as a pitcher this year; Nicole Castiglione was the stealing machine who ran so hard and fast that she was often called Forrest Gump. Ireland Kramer who showed her versatility and athleticism by playing several positions, including pitcher. Miranada Nemeth was a new addition to the team this year and made a huge impact. She showed how tough she is after a pre-season injury that didn’t slow her down at all. Another first year player, 6th grader Isabella Panepinto was a pleasant surprise. She is not the most talkative girl on the team, but she let her awesome playing speak for her. One time, when she was at bat, she told coach, “they better move back”, referring to the outfielders. Congratulation ladies.
