THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, May 31, 2019 Page 19 Softball team makes tourney off strength of 5-1 stretch By Greg Phipps t one stage this season, the Saugus softball team stood at 6-6 and a playoff bid looked like a diffi cult task. As it turns out, the Sachems were very much up to the challenge, as they proceeded to win fi ve of their next six games – a stretch that landed them with 11 wins and a spot in the Div. 3 North tournament. The streak concluded with a 12-0 rout of Stoneham in the team’s Senior Day contest last Friday at Belmonte Middle School Field. The game ended in the sixth inning as the Sachems offense exploded with the help of Emma Howard’s three doubles and RBI. Kirby Dalton also drove in a run with a hit, and Nystasia Rowe and Kyleigh Dalton added singles. Pitcher Caitlyn Wood, who has been stellar both on the mound and at bat over the last two weeks, helped herself ofA Senior catcher D.J.

Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow), the sponsor of the amendment. “These incidents are meant to intimidate some people in our communities, and they tear at the fabric of who we are as a country based on the equal right of everyone to participate in our democracy. With these security grants for synagogues, mosques, community centers and other organizations, we have made clear that hate has no place in our commonwealth.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $500,000.) Sen. Brendan Crighton Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matSenior Ashley Shaw prepares to lay down a bunt last Friday against Stoneham. er in the year. Once again, Wood was a key fi gure, going the distance and giving up just four hits and striking out six. She smacked three hits, including a home run, and drove in five runs. Getting in on the act were Cat Schena with a homer and three RBI, Alexa Ferraro and Howard with three hits each, Alessia Salzillo with two hits and Sadie Diters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of May 2024, the House met for a total of one hour and 28 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 32 hours and 51 minutes. Mon.
