Paige Masiello, one of the team’s captains, also the pitcher, ended the game with a strikeout. Masiello has had a superb season,  already having over 115 strike outs in May.   Other star players this season include senior centerfielder, Jessica Utter, and sophomore right- fielder, Natalie Marzalik.  Coach Nikki Gwinnett told northjersey.com reporter Chris Iseman after the county semi-finals, “[I said to the team] Listen, we just need to be cool and calm and just do what we need to do and we’ll get it.”   And that they did.   With a final record for the season of 21-8, the  Girl’s Softball Team showed  determination and dedication to the sport.  Good luck, seniors!
