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.

Do You Know Amanda? She’s got Children’s Learning Concierge Services Down Pat

If you have a little one at home, chances are, you have to make an obscene amount of decisions on a daily basis.  Little ones…big ones….little ones that seem like big ones…and everything in between.  You probably even reserve some time in your week by now to pull a few strands of hair out in frustration while facing all these decisions that will affect your little ...

Some Like it Hot

“Oh boy!” exclaimed my husband. “There’s a hot sauce shop in town!”

We were away antiquing for the weekend in a quaint village populated by Bed and Breakfasts, art galleries, and apparently, a hot sauce shop. For my husband, this was like discovering that someone had bought you a lottery ticket and you won… if the lottery prize was a fireball that would ...

Going for Brass

I get all teary-eyed watching the Olympics on TV.  You  know, the human drama, the sacrifice, the dedication, the thrill of competition, the athletic lip sync murmur to the national anthem on the podium.  

 

This year I discovered that there are many other Olympic champions besides the usual cadre of spring-wound gymnastic pixies and ferociously wedged, hairless swimmers ...
