Posted 05/17/2016 04:20PM

Great fielding, offensive firepower, and dominant pitching was the recipe for the LCA Lady Lions Softball team as they claimed the 2016 Eastern Independent League Regular Season title - their 2nd straight league title! With a record of 9-0 in league play and 10-1 overall, the Lady Lions' have one regular season game remaining on Thursday, May 19 against Concord Academy. Led by pitcher Samantha Gibson '16 who has a record of 9-1, striking out 101 batters in 66 innings, while maintaining an earned run average of 1.06, LCA has been strong defensively. Gibson has also contributed with her bat. She has a .698 average with a 1.163 slugging %, 4 triples, 3 home runs, 26 RBIs and 22 runs scored. 

Shortstop Shae Roys '16 has been LCA's lead off hitter and carries a .610 average and 21 runs scored. The Lady Lions have also had strong contributions from catcher Victoria Cusanello '17 and first baseman Abigail Broadhurst '18. Cusanello is batting .535 with 2 home runs, 15 RBIs and 14 runs scored while Broadhurst's average is a .400 with 18 RBIs. Cusanello has also been great behind the plate with the LCA pitchers and having a perfect fielding percentage. 

The infield has been patrolled by third baseman Zian Perez '17 and second baseman Elizabeth Stern '18, while the outfield defense has been anchored by Bianca Pizzano '19, Gaby Franchi '16, Emily Maurer '17, Hannah Lauffer '17, Julia Lawler '16, Emma Denaro '18, and Isabella Dassau '16. As a group they have an .897 fielding percentage.

As of late, the Lady Lions are arguably playing their best Softball. Over the last three games LCA has scored 44 runs in wins over EIL rivals Beaver Country Day, Berwick Academy, and Pingree School. The team has had to endure some trials throughout the season, but has persevered and is playing their best softball when it counts the most. Coaches Scott Gibson and Kim Borgen have done well leading this group of Lady Lions. Following their game on Thursday, the Lady Lions will travel to Dana Hall on Saturday for the EIL Softball Tournament to conclude their championship season. 

Lady Lions celebrate their recent win over Berwick Academy, clinching the 2016 Eastern Independent League title.
