26 SPORTS & RECREATION JUNE 13-19, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER The GALLAGHER MIDDLE SCHOOL SOFTBALL TEAM recently repeated as Northern Division regular-season champions by post- ing a 12-0 record that was two games better than second-place Ricci (10-2) in the standings. Gallagher, which was also unbeaten last spring with an 11-0 mark, outscored its 12 opponents by a 143-32 margin. The members of the team are, in front from left, Lily Riggin, Lily Ford, Ella Desjardins, Madison Kennedy, and Sydni Gelsomino; in middle row, Cristina Tortolano, Anna Costello, Lily Vendittelli, Brenna Lawrence, Sadie DeMaggio, Alyssa Carroccio, Skyla Oliveira, Madison Leboeuf, Madison Gelsomino, and head coach Mario Vendittelli; in back, Morgan Schelling, Lauren Boyd, Ella Bose, Savanna Morrow, Lauren Falls, Claire Boulanger, Haley Ellis, Lily Roumelis, and Nicole Fisher. Julia Cavanagh and Suzanne Laflamme are also members of the team. Unbeaten again: Gallagher Middle School softball team repeats as Northern Division regular-season champions and a run-scoring single by Costello, but they left the bases loaded. In the bottom of the inning, the Rebels scored twice with two outs, as Faith Hutchins dashed home on a wild pitch and Julia Bollentin socked a double that drove in Keaira Richardson. In the sixth, the Spartans col- lected three of their five hits in the game off Sam Hutchins, but only managed to score one run, as Lexi Parker raced home on a two-out wild pitch to knot the score. But in the home half of the inning, the Rebels regained their lead on a run-scoring triple down the right-field line by Faith Hutchins that scored Maciocio, who had led off with a walk. Hutchins later came home on a wild pitch. Despite the defeat, Venturini was again brilliant on the mound, as she ended up with a four-hitter that saw her strike out 11 batters. Smithfield High senior Anna Orticerio at the national meet, which will take place at North Carolina A&T State University's BB&T Stadium. Ezeama and Orticerio will compete in the hammer throw.
