With new members and an increase in players, the summer softball league has remained popular within youth sports.
With the start of summer and longer days comes the start of summer league athletics across the area. The Hockomock Girls’ Summer Softball League is off and running as 78 teams compete in seven divisions across four age groups. With very few undefeated and winless teams left, the parity that exists makes every game count in the battle for playoff spots. Playing only 10 games over five weeks gives extra importance to each game. “We don't have too many undefeated teams and not too many teams left without a win, so that is good,” league President John Bench said. “The playoff spots are tough to earn in this league and we like to see competitiveness remain throughout the season and across the league.” Despite competition from other sports such …

Kathy Remick led the way for the Lancers going 2-3 with a run. Marisa Dole went 1-3 with two RBIs.
For the Norton Lancers’ softball team, all it took was one inning of offense to beat the Westwood Wolverines in a Tri-Valley league matchup. With both team’s pitchers performing well, the third inning of the 3-1 win over the Wolverines was all the Lancers needed to get their record back to .500. “Good defense, timely runs, just putting the ball in play and pressuring them to make the plays,” Lancers’ coach Brian Clemmey said of his teams’ performance. Small ball was the key to the Lancers’ success as all the team’s hits resulted in no more than a single for the batter. “That’s what we’ve been working on a lot,” Clemmey said. “To make them (the opponent) make the play.“ A hit by Ashley Cibotti in the bottom of the third inning started …
