THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, April 12, 2019 Page 7 Youth and Teen Memberships – Only $14/month – BE ACTIVE BE HEALTHY BE YOU Tide softball team opens up the season with convincing win over host Melrose By Joe Mitchell O n a day that was certainly not conducive to play softball or any other spring sport, the Everett High School softball team was still able to persevere to beat host Melrose at Pine Banks, 17-8, on April 9. Coach Stacy Poste was proud of her team with the way it battled through the frigid elements to secure the first win of the year right on Opening Day. “It was extremely cold and raw outside, and it was only the second time that we played on dirt and real grass. We have been practicing on turf,” Poste said. “Coach Nigro and I knew how cold the girls were, but they did an unbelievable job stepping up to the plate and making contact.

It is very hard to pitch in these conditions, but she really did a great job, and her defense backed her up when Melrose did make contact.” Garay, only a junior, pitched all seven innings, recording eight strikeouts to go along with six walks, six hits and four earned runs. Offensively, the Crimson Tide sprayed the ball around the diamond up and down the lineup. Freshman Haley Oteri went 2-for-3, along with junior Veronica Bento. Bento’s classmate Maddy Duraes recorded two hits, a single and a triple that knocked in a total of four runs. Senior Kaylee Nearen collected two singles and a triple, driving home three more runs. Garay MyRWA, MIT CEHS and Gradient Corp. provided in-kind support. “The Human Health Risk Study on the Malden River is a prime example of an important collaboration initiated with an idea from our community,” said Karen Buck of the Friends of the Malden River. “Since 2016, together with MyRhelped her own cause with three singles and three RBI. Junior Elizabeth Peach contributed two singles to the winning effort. But it was not all offense and pitching; the Tide also made many spectacular defensive plays. “We had great innings until the sixth, where we made some errors and gave up a few hits. The infielders did a great job diving for balls and stopping them from getting into the outfield,” said Poste. The Tide was scheduled to play Latin Academy next at the Northeastern Center Playground on April 11 (after press deadline). They will then head to Revere’s St. Mary’s Park on Monday, April 15, Patriots’ Day, to take on the Revere Patriots, starting at 10 a.m. WA, we formed partnerships that overcame the funding shortage. This collaboration created a meticulous, independent, and unarguable study providing the community with assurance that yes, it is safe to boat on the Malden River. The sense of relief and joy is palpable. Now, the work begins!” AUTOTECH 1989 SINCE Is your vehicle ready for the Spring Season?!! AC SPECIAL Recharge your vehicle's AC for the warm weather!
