Washington, CT - The Glenholme softball team triumphed in their first two home games of the 2012 season – both against Grove School. After the Grizzlies beat Grove by a single run during a closely played game on April 24, Grove was determined to secure a victory during the May 3 rematch. However, it quickly became clear that they were no match for the Glenholme Grizzlies' outstanding fielding, batting, and dugout camaraderie.

Starting pitcher, Ben, expertly pitched five innings, Jason made a crucial outfield catch, Ian played strong behind the catcher’s glove, and Hunter made several impressive plays at first base. Griffin did an incredible job umpiring the game and relief pitcher Nick made certain that Grove could never regain control.

Ultimately, the Grizzlies walked away with a solid 25-6 win over Grove - a true representation of how hard work in practice can pay off on the field. The players also showed great teamwork by sharing jerseys, accepting substitutions, and being open to trying new positions. One Glenholme player remarked, “It definitely makes you feel good when everyone is doing their job on the field and making hits while at bat. We're all feeling good about how we’re playing.”

Congratulations, Grizzlies!
