Hornets embrace the challenge

Passaic Valley Today


LITTLE FALLS — A young, but somewhat experienced team gives Passaic
Valley softball coach Chris Canning a lot of optimism heading into the
2010 season.

SAFE — Following an impressive freshman campaign, Passaic Valley <br/>sophomore Liz DeVenio will be the starting catcher when the 2010 <br/>softball season opens next Thursday at Ridgewood.

Following an impressive freshman campaign, Passaic
Valley sophomore Liz DeVenio will be the starting catcher when the 2010
softball season opens next Thursday at Ridgewood.

Coming off an 11-14 campaign a year ago, the Hornets will rely
on a number of underclassmen to compliment senior captains Jami DeGrote
and Jess Reilly.

"These kids have worked really hard," Canning said. "They put a
lot of time into conditioning during the offseason. They've been in the
weight room and have worked on their hitting. We have a good group of
players here."

Canning, whose staff remains intact this spring with former
Hornet and varsity assistant Erin McNeill, along with JV coach Joe
Autieri and freshman coach and former PV standout Kathleen Berthold,
knows his team will face a new challenge with the 2010 schedule.

"We open at Ridgewood on April 1, and will also play against
Immaculate Heart and Paramus," Canning said. "Those are pretty tough
games, but our kids are looking forward to it."

The Hornets' season opener at Ridgewood starts at 4 p.m. and
will be followed by the home opener on April 3, against Paterson Kennedy
in an 11 a.m. contest. The team will also play three-straight games
from April 5-7 against West Milford, at home and road games at Villa
Walsh and Wayne Hills.

DeGrote, a four-year varsity player, will be at shortstop, while
Reilly is the centerfielder. Sophomore Liz DeVenio will catch while
sophomore Jazmine Sconciafurno is expected to start at third base.
Sophomores Christina Bronkowski and Mikayla Melendez could start at
first and second base respectively, with Bronkowski also an outfield
hopeful. Juniors Giana Saviettieri and Lindsey Romagnino should also be
candidates for starting positions.

The pitching staff will be made up of junior Megan Anderson and
freshman Kaitlyn Kallert.

"Both pitchers have done well," Canning said. "I think Kallert
can definitely see some time in the circle and Megan has experience from
last year, so I think we'll be in good shape there.

We also have four other sophomores who are doing well in
practice and could fill some key backup roles, as well as the designated
player spot."

The Hornets were scheduled to play at Paramus Catholic today in a
scrimmage and will visit West Essex tomorrow. Both of those games are
at 4 p.m.

The final tune-up game will be Monday, at home, against Pope
John of Sparta.
