Livingston Varsity Softball Team Prepares for 2014 Season

March 29, 2014 at 6:55 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Livingston High School (LHS) Softball program is expecting a successful season as they prepare for the upcoming spring. Last year, the varsity team ended its season with a record of 25-4, while also winning the Super Essex Conference-American Division, as well as a second consecutive Essex County Championship with their victory over Mount St. Dominic.

Varsity coach Jason Daily, along with assistant, Dave Mead, said they refuse to let their victories from last season blind them from the work that needs to be accomplished to succeed this season.

Despite the loss of talented seniors Jess Peslak, Rachael Waslack, and Jazzy Pignatello, who were important assets to the success of the team, the coaches have said that the talent seen at this year’s practices shows that the team has the mentality and the skill to be as successful as last year. In addition, this year’s seniors, who will collectively be leading the team, are quite competent as they have long been part of the program.

"Although our softball program graduated a couple of key seniors last year, a solid core nucleus of players has returned this spring,” said LHS Athletic Director Patrick Genova.

This season, the LHS coaches have said that they expect nothing short of perfection from all of their players, old and new.

“We are looking for leadership on and off the field combined with battle-tested experience in pressure situations,” said Coach Daily.

“We will play a very difficult independent schedule (Five Top-10 NJ teams plus top in Delaware) to go with a highly-competitive conference schedule,” added Coach Daily. 

With multiple practices and scrimmages now under their belt, the Varsity team is ready to prove themselves this year.

Their first game will be on Tuesday, April 1, at West Essex High School at 4:00 p.m.

Waze.

Ever since bridge repair closed a major thoroughfare near my house, the traffic on my sleepy street has increased dramatically.  And it is not by accident that commuters have figured out ...
