EHS Softball Team Looking Forward to 2022
The Everett High softball team, which is set to open its season this Monday against Greater Boston League rival Malden at Glendale Park at 4:00, has high hopes for a successful 2022 campaign.
“I think this season will be a great one,” said long-time head coach Stacy Schiavo. “This group of girls, we feel, can play in any position we put them in. We had infielders working in the outfield and outfielders in the infield and they all looked great. There is really great depth on this team. “
The 2022 edition of the Lady Crimson Tide will be led by senior captains Celeste Fuccillo and Kaylin Seward.
Other members of the varsity include: junior outfielder Julia Curran, sophomore outfielder Arabela Cvitkusic, freshman outfielder Jayla Davila, sophomore infielder Emma Longmore, freshman catcher/outfielder Emilia Maria-Babcock, sophomore first baseman Bryanna Mason, sophomore shortstop Gianna Masucci, junior catcher/infielder Kayley Rossi, freshman infielder Ashley Seward, junior pitcher/outfielder Kristi Skane, and freshman infielder Alexa Uga.
Among the key players returning from last year are Fuccillo, Longmore, Rossi, Kaylin Seward, and Skane.
Schiavo and her crew will be playing a scrimmage tomorrow (Thursday) against Masconomet at Lafayette Park at 4:00.
“I think our offense has always been a little bit behind,” noted Schiavo. “That’s going to be really key to our success. We need to focus on having all nine batters get on base. On the pitching side, we have two great pitchers (Fuccillo and Skane) who will rotate throughout the season. We have a lot of new talent this year, and I think we’re going to have a good season.
“One thing I can say about this freshman group, not just the ones on varsity, they are much more skilled than we have seen in awhile,” Schiavo said. “I feel that is due to the coaching staff in the youth program. They have really prepared these girls for high school ball. I think we all have more of an appreciation to be able to play a full season this year. The girls seem excited and I think the chemistry will only build as the season goes on.
“Our goal is to have a winning season and go further into the playoffs than in years past,” Schiavo added.
After Monday’s opener, the Lady Crimson Tide will make the short trip across the Parkway to Chelsea next Wednesday.
