The New Hyde Park Athletic Association Girls 14U Team Intensity swept a doubleheader against the Brooklyn Cyclones in the highly competitive HBQBV Travel Softball League. The ladies had a tough task - facing a flame throwing windmiller who has been routinely clocked in the upper 50 mph range yet the NHP girls played their way to a gut wrenching 4-3 victory.
Jillian Sakowich (5 hits) was the offensive star of the day excelling from the left side of the plate. Sakowich, (who also had 5 stolen bases and scored 2 runs) has been taking a cerebral approach to the game, carefully analyzing the defense before deciding to bunt, hit, or slap her way on base.
