New Faces Lead MHS Softball



The Milford High girls softball program has been

a powerhouse in recent years, capturing district and state championships along the way. But with 10 seniors graduating from last year, head coach Steve DiVitto said his new cast will have to find their own path.

"I think it's important for all of our girls coming in this year not to try to live up to past expectations, but to be themselves," DiVitto said. "They've got to set their goals, but they can't try to compare themselves to others. They need to be true to themselves and their teammates and just compete at the highest level."

The Scarlet Hawks have several players returning with varsity experience. Amanda Wenckus, a junior who transferred into the program a year ago, played shortstop at the end of last season and will likely start in that spot this year.

Sophomore Carly Ferreira returns as a corner infielder and Megan Hart, a junior, could take over as the team's pitcher. "She is going to have the opportunity to seize the moment in the circle," DiVitto said.

April Swain will play in the outfield for the Hawks this spring. A junior, she could also see time in the circle, DiVitto said.

"They have experienced it at the varsity level and some of them have played an extensive role," the coach said. "Having that experience and being on the varsity team last year is important. For the girls who are coming up and do make the varsity roster, just because they have been there and experienced it."

DiVitto pointed out the difference in speed between the varsity game compared to junior varsity or summer softball and said that will be a point of adjustment for his team, but hopes the quartet returning will ease the transition. "I think those four are going to be great leaders for us," he said.

Milford began spring practice last week and the head coach said he is pleased with what he has seen so far.

"Our energy has been really good and I know the girls have been working hard with their offseason programs," DiVitto said. "We are trying to get better every day, that's what the message is going to be and what it's always been. If we can keep getting better every day, we are going to be alright."
