Last week, spring sports began practicing and preparing for their seasons. One of the ironies of “spring” sports is that players have gotten used to them starting in the dead of winter, where they are battling snow, cold, and being stuck in the gym for practice.

But in the last week of March, the girls softball team get the chance to escape the cold and go to Florida!

This will be the fourth year in a row the softball team will be heading down to Orlando, Florida to play at ESPN’s World Wide of Sports Complex. They will be playing multiple games every day for three days against schools from other states. They will be staying in one of the resorts in Walt Disney World, and when they aren’t playing in softball games, they will be going to the parks of Disney World. This tradition was begun by Coach Angela Salisbury and is being continued by Coach Trish Hemsley-Cartotto, who has taken the helm of the softball team this year after Mrs. Salisbury stepped down.  The trip has becomes most of the girls’ favorite part of the softball season.

Senior captain Kate Ryan says, “I am beyond excited to travel to Florida with the team. We are so grateful for this opportunity because it allows us to bond and have fun while also playing softball every day. Even though it is difficult to get outside due to the recent weather, we have been working very hard during practice inside. I’m looking forward to playing in warmer weather down in FLA!”

Team captain Christina Colon was also asked about preparing for the trip and she said, “We have been working hard as a team and our coaches have been working very hard to get us ready for Florida, and the girls are doing really well. The team overall has a good bond, and it has been so much fun getting to know each other. I’m excited to go to Florida to play teams from all over the country and to get a tan!”
