April 25– The Mineola Lightning Girls Softball Team improved its record to 5-0. The Lightning have been led by the strong pitching of Tierney Fitzgerald and Shannon Durham and solid fielding by Hannah Hoyt, Kellie Cassidy and Courtney Scheuer. They are also swinging their bats well with timely hits by Sara McCarthy, Valerie Cobos, Stella Davis and Kayla Orefice. The Lightning’s offense has been averaging more than 10 runs per game. Christina Benintendi, Angelina Filpo-Toscano, Samantha Marcia, Angelina Morelli, Victoria Ondris and Lyndsey Reuther round out the squad, which since forming in January has improved significantly because of the dedication of the girls. All of their hard work is now paying off.
