Here’s a look at Kennedy Gaels who are coached by Andrew Entwistle:
Coach: Andrew Entwistle, first year
Key returners: Rachel Entwistle, Patrice Grande, Kaela Fields, Nicole Alleva
Newcomers: Jen Jamieson, Ashley Whitson, Julia Bauer, Katelynn Ryan, and Emma Weider
2013 Outlook: “This year we return 5 seniors to a team that won the league 2 of the last 3 years and narrowly missed last year finishing second by a game. We are hoping to avenge last years semi final loss in the section. Our seniors include our 4 senior co-captains, Rachel Entwistle, Patrice Grande, Kaela Fields and Nicole Alleva. Each of the four are four year varsity starters and have won various league and section accolades and give us a lot of punch at the top of the lineup. Rachel Entwistle is headed to DePaul University to catch for Coach Eugene Lenti’s top 25 program. Rachel hopes to help DePaul return to the WCWS for a fourth time.
Also returning is senior second baseman Gabby Rosado, sophomore pitcher Molly Feeney who had a great year with us as a freshman last year and sophomore Jasimine Velez. Key newcomers include junior 3b Jen Jamieson who will start for us at 3b and freshman Ashley Whitson who will start in the Of. New additions also include sophomore catcher Julia Bauer, sophomore 1b/of Katelynn Ryan and sophomore Of Emma Weider each of whom we expect to be major contributors this year.”
