EAST HANOVER, NJ- Hanover Park’s ladies softball had an outstanding season with a 23-4 record along with a 11-1 record that tied for first place in the NJAC-Liberty conference.

The offense scored 210 runs and had a team batting average of .360 with seven hitters hitting .351 or better. Hanover Park pitchers also chipped in allowing only 44 runs in 27 games and recorded seven shutouts. The starting line-up had  four seniors, two juniors and three freshmen who scored 10 or more runs nine times and had an eight and 10 game winning streaks during the season. Head coach Jamie Galioto was also able to use the team speed as an advantage with their 102 stolen bases.                                                                                                                                                                 Junior Amy Petrovich who collected her 100 career hits during the season led the team with hits (36) and RBIs (39) with half her hits going for extra bases. Senior Maddie McLaughlin batted .492 and hit safely in all but two of the games she played. Freshman lead off hitter, Arayana Galioto, had 34 hits and scored 28 runs and another freshman, Nicole Miller, was second on the team with 26 runs batted in. A third freshman, Dara DiMaiolo, handled the hot corner and had four home runs in the 20 hits she collected. Seniors Amanda Bermel, an outfielder who had a .394 batting average and 20 stolen bases,  Nikkiann Giamio, a catcher who handled the pitchers and chipped in 16 RBIs, and DH Melissa Zweigbaum who had 16 hits, provided the leadership that Coach Galioto needed to keep the team focus.                                                                                                                                 The pitching was in good hands with junior, Jessica Miller, and senior, Brittany Monahan. Miller was 19-4 with 106 strikeouts in 128 innings. Jessica also led the team with six home runs and had 24 runs batted in. Monahan only allowed three runs and recorded four wins. The team made it to the North Jersey Section 2 Group 2 finals and should be even stronger next year with the returning underclassmen.
