BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - This would have been senior Alisabeth Fiamingo's year to take over first base for the Gov. Livingston softball team. "I was confident she would transition into this varsity role with ease.  Liz was also going to be a strong player at the plate as she hits for power," said Highlander head softball coach Erin Lanigan.  

Fiamingo's favorite high school highlight was her first grand slam on home field. 

Wearing the GL uniform represents "the culmination of my softball years from kindergarten to current," said Fiamingo. "I reflect back fondly on the practices, late games, dedication from coaches and support from parents and community."
