The summer all-star softball season is still going (with Brewster majors playing in the state championship), but before I forgot, I wanted to congratulate all of the girls in Districts 18, 20 and 33 for their summer seasons, especially the respective champs:
Haverstraw senior softball for another outstanding season. Even though the season ended on a controversial note (How does the umpiring staff allow a coach to talk them out of a call?) Haverstraw had another fine summer.
The New City majors softball team emerged from the losers bracket to beat Stony Point, 4-3 in seven innings (an excellent game) then beat Stony Point in the ‘IF’ game to win the District 18 title.
The Eastchester majors softball team which won the District 20 title and reached the Section 3 final, where it fell to Brewster. Eastchester varsity coach Skip Walsh will be smiling when many of these girls get to varsity.
The 9-10-year winner will be crowned this week as Pearl River takes on South Orangetown. These teams will play Wednesday.
The 11-year-old title will also be decided this week with Nanuet and South Orangetown squaring off, beginning Tuesday (tonight) at Lake Nanuet. This should be a good one as Nanuet features a pair of fine windmillers in Danielle DiModugno and Janine Mackey.
Before I forget I wanted to thank the organizers of the Alicia Brady softball tournament. My daughter, Elena, was fortunate to be selected to Nanuet’s 9-10-year-old team that participated, and she and her teammates enjoyed playing in it. It was well run and the tournament directors did not lose sight of the fact that the intent was for the girls to have fun and enjoy themselves.
