Atlantics Grab 51 Win Over Resolutes in ‘Nostalgia Ball’
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 13
from Garwood both singled in the first but were denied a score, then the Atlantic men answered with two more runs in the second, upping the score to 40. Drew Frady slashed a leadoff single to right and Rick Fischer reached first safely on an error. Ryan Struck looped an RBI single over second then Rob “Magic” Dieckmann’s infield ground out brought home Fischer.
Hingel whizzed a twoout single down the third baseline in the fourth inning, made a partial move toward second but was nailed out while returning to first. Then ABBC took a 50 lead in the fifth when Jim “Trotter” Dragonetti plopped a single over second, stole second then scored on “Special K’s” sharp single to left.
Finally, the Resolutes managed to get a footprint on home with a run in the bottom of the fifth. Westfield’s Paul Salamone slapped a single to left and Iselin’s Ray Struck struck a single past short. After Salamone was forced out at third, Struck stole
third, then Pinho scribbled an infield RBI single.
King got his first hit in the sixth but was left stranded. Then the Resolutes mustered a threat in the seventh when John Spellman of Scotch Plains and Pinho both singled but were denied a score.
ABBC remained silent in the eighth but the Resolutes made some noise in the lower half of the inning. King yanked a single to left, then Constandi launched a very long shot toward the flagpole in faraway center. But the ABBC center fielder, who missed nothing all day, made an outstanding snag. Hingel followed with a single but the ABBC defense held firm.
After Cummings hit a spinning infield single to start the ninth, the Resolutes’ defense provided some dazzle when the center fielder made a onehop catch for an out then fired the ball to second to nail the runner for a double play. In the bottom of the inning, only Bob Ritter of Kenilworth was successful at singling.
More games are planned in the future at Echo Lake Park and spectators are invited to observe this unique and fun event. Cheering for the “old fashioned” local team is allowed.

National Qualifier Yields Hawk Win Over Bandits
By FRED LECOMTE
Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times
Berkeley Heights hosted the lady softball Pony National Qualifier games on June 1011 at Governor Livngston High School and Columbia Park. After the dust settled, the Long Island Hawks rose above a field of 16 teams to capture the championship.
The Pony Tournament softball team participants representing Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey all had qualified previously for the 16year and under tournament. Three seeding qualification games were played by all 16 teams on June 11. The winners battled it out in single elimination games played on June 12.
The Berkeley Heights/ Mountainside Bandits opened against the New Jersey Starz and tied, 44, in a 90minute time limit game. Bandit, pitcher, Kristen Turturiello delivered a impressive performance allowing four hits, striking out five and walking one. Catcher Jenny Calabrese, shortstop Peggy Lallis, outfielders Kristene Freda and Peggy Ringwood led the offensive barrage.
The Bandits then edged the Lehigh Valley Vipers from Pennsylvania, 65, in the second round. Christene Peomulie picked up the win, scattering eight hits, striking out four and walking none. The Bandits scored all of their runs on the combined efforts of Jackie Cuozzo, Becki Ringwood, Nicole Hill and Calabrese.
Coming into the third game, the Bandits needed and received a win ning performance against the Ramsey
Rockets. Outstanding defensive play was combined with great pitching from Kristen Turturiello, who allowed just three hits while striking out four. The offensive barrage was led by center fielder Meghan Butler as her bat exploded for three hits while collecting two RBI. Cuozzo, Lallis and Turturiello each produced two hits.
Earning the third seed, the Bandits defeated the Warren AllStars, 43, on June 12. Pemoulie took to the mound, scattered eight hits and struck out four. Freda’s twoout single proved to be the winning hit as she collected two RBI.
The Bandits then renewed acquaintances with the Lehigh Valley Vipers in an excellently played contest and won 43. Turturiello scattered six hits, struck out four and walked one. Calabrese, Butler and Turturiello combined for six hits while Hill collected two RBI.
The Pony National Qualifier final four teams were the 50 Long Island Hawks opposing the 401 Bandits while the Clifton Cobras battled the West Windsor Wildcats. Pemoulie was outstanding against the Hawks, allowing one run and eight hits while striking out three and walking none.
Ahead 32 in the eight inning via home runs from Ringwood and Hill, with certain victory in sight, disaster befell the Bandits as the Hawks capitalized on a bloop single combined with an error to come from behind to win.
The Hawks then won the championship by defeating the Clifton Cobras, 103.
Heather Dennis Set to Head ‘Down Under’ for Olympics
Heather Dennis, a senior at Westfield High School and captain of the cross country, winter and spring track teams, was chosen out of more than 400 young men and women by McDonald’s of Garwood to participate in the Sydney 2000 Olympic Youth Camp held in conjunction with the Summer Olympic Games. Dennis has also been very active in helping teach disabled children to read while maintaining her 3.2 grade point average.
Being an athlete takes on many definitions for Dennis, but more than anything else, being an athlete has put her in the seat of growth and provided an everlearning experience.
“I want to learn and grow and seize every opportunity I may be fortunate enough to receive,” says Dennis.
That includes the 4,054 mile bike ride from Seattle, Washington to Sea Bright, New Jersey an experience she claims will not soon be forgotten.
“I want to broaden my definition of an athlete and a leader, and be able to fulfill that definition; I want to be an inspiration,” Dennis said.
The Olympic Youth Camp and its relative activities have been an integral part of the Olympic Games since 1912 in Stockholm. Through a variety of camp activities Olympic Achievers will be involved in a variety of activities from attending Olympic competitions and cultural performances to spending time with Australian host families.
Countries competing in the 2000 Summer Olympic Games will send two or
more participants ranging in age from 16 to 18. While specific criteria may vary, all countries selected their representatives based on the fundamental principles of the Olympic movement, including excellence in education, leadership, community involvement and sports participation.
Olympic Achievers were nominated based on their academic standing, community service, and their onepage essay titled, “Why I should be a McDonald’s Olympic Achiever.”

SPF Soccer Jazz Tarnish Golden Arrow Girls, 20
The Scotch PlainsFanwood Jazz girls intercity soccer team ended their season with a 20 victory over the Piscataway Golden Arrows at the Soccerama Soccer Tournament in Monroe Township on June 17. The Jazz used a combination of determined defense and a swiftpaced offense to shutout the Golden Arrows.
Fullback Kristen Henkels made a nice defensive stop then moved the ball to midfield and passed to right wing Becca McGuire. McGuire alluded a defender and passed to Meaghan Kelly in the right corner, who rifled a shot to Bitsy Kipping on the left. Kipping trapped the ball skillfully and tapped it into the net for the goal.
The Jazz kept the Golden Arrows scoreless thanks to three stellar defensive plays by their most diminutive players. On one play, Lauren Mains came
out of her goal to disrupt a dangerous breakaway. On another, Jess Churgin cut across the field to tackle an intruding striker and Katie van Haasteren did the same to prevent another dangerous attack.
Speedy midfielders Hallie Mintz, Gaby Falco, Lauren Hercel and Briana Falco kept the pressure on Piscataway. Goaltender Jess McGarry set up the final goal with a long clearing pass to Lindsey Fitzgerald, who crashed her way upfield and sent the ball to Kipping on the right. Kipping dashed past the entire Piscataway team and fired in the final goal.
