5th Grade Lady Patriots Complete Perfect Season!!!!
The Williston Park 5th grade Lady Patriots worked hard all season long and achieved an undefeated 12-0 season while competing against teams from all across the North Shore.
The highlight of the season was the championship game on June 26th when the Lady Patriots hosted visiting East Williston in front of a sold out crowd at the friendly confines of Kelleher Field. Our girls jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the 1st inning and tacked on 4 more runs over the next 4 innings. Stellar pitching by Annie Nutley, Riley Gildea, Luci Sellerburg, and Mackenzie Fitzgerald held East Williston to 2 runs until the 6th inning. East Williston came storming back to shrink the lead to 8-7 and had runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out. Mackenzie Fitzgerald caught a popup behind the mound and was able to pick the runner off second base to complete a game ending double play!!!! It was a great team win, as the Lady Patriots got timely hitting up and down the lineup.
This team was coached by Joe Gildea, Mike Nutley, Terri Valentino, and Mike Nolan. Players pictured are
