Page 18 THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, April 12, 2019 The lineup is set for Friday’s softball opener at Chelmsford Patriots will then take on Everett at home Monday morning to begin NEC season By Joe Mitchell he Revere High School softball team was supposed to begin the 2019 season on Tuesday against nonleague host Chelmsford, but because of inclement weather it was postponed until later today (Friday, April 12), starting at 4:30 p.m. The delayed start gave coach Joe T Ciccarello an opportunity to conduct some more practices to give his players one more shot to earn a spot in the starting lineup in the early going. But nothing’s etched in stone, and the lineup is always subject to change from game to game. But as of Thursday morning, April 11, pitcher Olivia McManus will start against Chelmsford in the circle in the aforementioned Friday game. She will be throwing to Alexis Iacoviello, who is scheduled to be behind the plate. Danielle Dion will be at first, Adrianna Keefe at second, Eve Lescovitz at shortstop and Erica Anderson at third. Adrianna Fusco (left field), Lynzie Anderson (center field) and Joli Giuliano (right field) will patrol the outfield. The Patriots finished up with a 14-8 record last year after losing a heartbreaker to Methuen in the bottom of the seventh inning in a secondround game. While McManus gets the nod to start the opener in the circle, Adrianna Fusco will also be given a chance to start the game in the circle this year. In last week’s Revere Advocate, Ciccarello mentioned in the preview story that both his hurlers have contrasting styles. With that in mind, it will provide him with options depending on the opponent’s lineup. After Friday’s game against nonleague host Chelmsford, the Revere girls will return home for the Northeastern Conference opener against Everett at St. Mary’s Park on Monday, April 15, Patriots’ Day, beginning at 10 a.m. ~ Obituaries ~ Colleen (Cacchiotti) Gaeta 6 2 years of age, of Revere, formerly of East Boston, passed away unexpectedly on March 30, 2019.
