Team Parents: Elizabeth and Jeff Avant
by Robert Stone, Class of 2017
As Stratford students have come to expect, the 2015 Stratford Softball Eaglettes had another great year on the diamond. The Eaglettes went to the state tournament in Columbus, Georgia, where they overcame a first round loss, won three games in a single day, and defeated in town rival FPD to make it to the State Championship series. The team finished second place in the state as a result of their tremendous tournament effort. Coach Treadway commented that both Mary Wilson Avant’s pitching and the Eaglettes’ great offense started clicking just in time for the Eaglettes’ postseason run. Coach Treadway hopes to follow up the exciting 2015 season with yet another successful season, and it looks like the team will be returning a number of key players for the 2016 season. Tori Dover will likely take over the pitching duties next year and rising seniors Hannah Griffin and Alyssa Orona will continue to produce runs for the Eaglettes. Coach Treadway commented on Hannah and Alyssa’s great leadership skills. He will be expecting these two to be leaders for the team and to continue doing a great job on the field next season.
