The Roslyn High School girls’ softball team has been playing their best ball in years. On Monday, they finished the regular season with an 8-4 record in League II Conference 4 play and a 10-6 record overall.
The regular season ended on May 7 with a convincing 14-1 win over Friends Academy. And once again, Nicole Lang was both the pitching and hitting star for Roslyn. In the win, Lang hit a grand slam, her first home run of her career. She had five runs batted in and only allowed one run as the winning pitcher.
Starting on April 20, the Lady Bulldogs ran off a five-game winning streak, defeating Friends Academy, Locust Valley, Lynbrook, Hewlett and West Hempstead.
During that streak, the pitching star has been Lang, who has won nine games for Roslyn this season, while also starring on offense in several key contests, including a big hit in the 8-3 April 27 win over Hewlett. Lang has virtually been a one-woman pitching staff for Roslyn, appearing on the mound in all of their games this season.
Other hitting stars for Roslyn have been Amanda Green, Lauren Mayo, Gabrielle Pomerantz, Rachel Murillo, and Mariel Chase. Green came through with the winning hit in the May 2 win over West Hempstead. Mariel Chase hit two home runs in the April 20 win over Friends Academy. Rachel Murillo has been in the middle of several game-winning rallies, including going 3-for-3 in a March 28 win over Locust Valley. Lauren Mayo had two runs batted in the win over Lynbrook. Gabrielle Pomerantz hit a big three-run homer in that same 8-3 win over Hewlett.
