Team Information: Varsity Softball is a Spring sport at MHC Academy, coached by our Athletic Director, Mrs. Davida Gotha-Ostrander.

 

Season Summary: The Blue Jays continue to grow and become more competitive from season to season. Our 2018 season has been our most competitive and successful season yet. Junior pitcher, Bryonna Richburg, led the team both offensively and defensively this year. This being Richburg's third season as the Blue Jays' starting pitcher, you could see her confidence and strength on the mound. Richburg's hard work earned her a spot on NJIC's First Team All-League and All-Passaic County Honorable Mention.

 

Following closely behind Richburg in stats, was Freshman Savannah Susen (1st/P), who led the team in RBIs and earned her first win on the mound in the final game of the season vs top team in the league Glen Rock. Susen also earned herself a spot on NJIC's Second Team All-League and All-Passaic County Honorable Mention.

 

Junior Natalie DeCindio (CF/SS) led the team in runs and had a scoring % of 0.903. Freshman Alyssa Cogdell had the third highest fielding percentage, along with being the third highest in RBIs following closely behind Richburg and Susen, which helped Cogdell to earn herself a spot on NJIC's All-League Honorable Mention Team.

 

Looking ahead to the 2019 season the Blue Jays have graduated four seniors, including starting catcher, Natalie Lamendola, which will be a big spot to fill. We are looking to not only our returning players to step up into open positions but also some of our incoming freshmen as well. We have been working hard to improve our program every year and next season will be no different.
