Girls’ Softball:
Girls’ Softball came into the season with high hopes and seemed to fulfill those hopes, going 18-2 and earning a first round bye in the playoffs as the one seed. They had championship aspirations but unfortunately they lost their first game against Chelmsford 7-6 . However, most of the core of the team is intact so their championship window remains open.

Rising sophomore Christian Gemelli had a hot bat towards the end of the season, hitting a home-run to put the Bedford game to bed and generally playing well all around.

They faced 4th seeded North Attleboro in the first round and won in overtime, with John Mulligan scoring the game tying goal with eight seconds remaining and game-winning goal in overtime.
