MHS Softball Trusting in the Process

On a team with so many newcomers this spring, the Milford High softball team is seemingly borrowing a mantra from the Philadelphia 76ers of the NBA, "trust the process."
The Scarlet Hawks dropped their season opener 12-7 against Sharon but head coach Steve DiVitto said his group has an understanding of what it's going to take to get his newer group up to speed.
"There is a process, that's what happens when you have an entire starting lineup that graduates and girls that do not have a ton of varsity experience, you have to learn on the fly and learn quick," DiVitto said. "But they have been open to constructive criticism and suggestions and they are working at it, and working hard."
DiVitto said his players know not to get discouraged when things are not going their way, recognizing the potential in the newest incarnation of a program that has proceeded three state championships this decade. "We know it's going to take some time to get to where we want to be," he said. "But we need to continue to stick with it and stick to the process."
A few players have already stood out through the preseason and the first game of the campaign, including junior catcher Katy Watson. "She has worked really hard and she is someone who entered the season competition for playing time and has taken feedback and used it to better her game," DiVitto said.
Lucy Creedon added a hit and two runs scored in the opener and her coach said she has done well to get back into top form. Megan Hart tripled and scored a run in the first game of the season, while Taylor Waldrup added a pair of hits.
Both Hart and Olivia Morelli saw time in the pitching circle. "They all have done an excellent job," DiVitto said. "They really and truly have."
This year's group of girls is a fun one to be around, DiVitto said. They have brought a positive energy and an inward focus on getting better as opposed to worrying about what other teams are doing.
"They make every day at the field enjoyable," he said. "We are trying to be better today than we were yesterday and better tomorrow than we were today, we need to continue that mindset. Our main focus is on ourselves, just 'be you and get better every day.'"
