Champions crowned in CLL


Around the Clock Heating and Cooling walked away victorious in the softball Majors Division championship game on Wednesday, May 28 at Atwell Field.

Around the Clock prevailed mightily over Transact Tech, 21-10, in a game that was almost one sided from the opening pitch.

Veteran pitcher Taylor McDermott, in her final year with the team, was instrumental in keeping the Transact bats at bay. She struck out multiple batters over the first two innings, only allowing one run. McDermott also contributed on the offensive end with strong hitting and baserunning, as she, along with Hannah Huddleston, Isabella Marotta, and Dana Boothroyd helped Around the Clock jump out to a 9-1 lead after two.

Called on in relief of McDermott in the third inning, Kelly Boothroyd struggled with the suddenly lively bats of Transact. Giving up several runs, but not the lead, Boothroyd and Around the Clock held a slim 9-8 advantage.

In the bottom of the third, McDermott struck again with a three-run home run over the centerfield fence, starting a rally that continued until Around the Clock led 16-8.

Continued excellence at the plate and on the base paths by Huddleston, Marotta, Boothroyd, and McDermott, as well as Ava Pitruzzello and Ayanna Helmedach helped push the lead to an insurmountable one, as Boothroyd held Transact to only two more runs over the final three innings.

Around the Clock Heating and Cooling was coached by Tim McDermott, Tom Boothroyd, and Jen Huddleston, while Transact Tech was managed by Steve DeMartino.
