Highlander Softballers Take Aim on Union County Title

By FRED LECOMTE

Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times

Governor Livingston Head Softball Coach Jerry Britt, may have a feeling of satisfaction coming into the 1999 season. The Highlanders have all of their players returning except 1998 graduate Vicki Guida.

Many sources felt that the Highlanders may the team to beat. They appear to be the favorites to capture the Mountain Valley Conference and the Union County Championship and could be strong contenders in the state tournament. Competition will come in the form of defending county champ Westfield. In addition Cranford should be there, as well as Roselle Park.

Last year, the Highlanders lost just two Conference games, one County game and lost, 3-2, to West Essex in the State semi-final game.

This year the Highlanders will be much stronger according to Coach Britt. "They are a very experienced group, each girl having vastly improved. They possess a great attitude as well as a strong team chemistry. Many of the girls have been teamed up since the sixth grade playing under the Berkeley Heights Police Athletic League Softball banner."

Since, most have played together in summer and fall leagues, the Highlanders' infield will be very steady defensively while deep and explosive offensively; therefore, the expectations and anticipation towards reaching their goals are realistic.

Anne Marie Calabrese, Heather Kantorek, Ellen Findlay and Ronnie Filippatos are the returning seniors. New and exciting talent to the lineup

include freshman Jenell Crincoli, junior Elizabeth Klebaur, senior Monika Andersson and juniors Devon Monehan and Kathy Nallin.

Junior Gina Turtiriello, a righthander, will take the mound as the starting pitcher. A varsity starting pitcher since her freshman year, Turturiello is a quality pitcher, very confident in her deliveries yet not overpowering. She allows the opposition to make contact and enjoys the backup of strong defensive play.

"I have put in a lot of hard work for many years to become the best pitcher I can be," said Turturiello. "I have learned to handle pressure, so now I have a lot of fun out there."

Sharing the pitching duties will be freshman Crincoli. Crincoli has outstanding talent and also may see action in the infield. Sophomore Jen Calabrese will take over the catching duties and enters the line up with excellent talent. She has excellent speed and is noted for hitting with power.

Power-hitting junior Heather McDonald will cover first base and junior Gina Pisano will cover second. Findlay' noted for her team leadership qualities and motivation, will play third.

Kantorek, primarily the shortstop, may play second base at times. Her outstanding four years of soccer and basketball account for her

athleticism. Excellent speed and talent along with a great attitude contribute to her success.

"I feel relaxed and truly enjoy being around my teammates, making for my final season to be a fun one," stated Kantorek. "If we remain healthy and play the way we are capable, look for us in the championship rounds."

Anna Marie Calabrese has three years of varsity experience and has proved to be most effective at the center field position. Her consistency offensively allows her to become flexible in the batting order.

"Since 6th grade I have been playing this game," said Calabrese. "As a senior and playing my final year of high school competition I expect to perform to be best I can be at my position, set an example and bring spirit and motivation to my teammates."

Right fielder Filippatos, and junior Gina Piccarillo will also be steady contributors. Klebaur will share in some of the catching duties as the backup. Noted as an all around player, she has the ability to fill in at most positions. Andersson, Monahan and Nallin will substitute in the outfield.

The Highlanders will host Hillside today, then will host Watchung Hills on April 3.

MISTRETTA, TURNER NAMED TEAM CO-CAPTAINS

Blue Devil Nine Key on Speed, Smart Base Running Skills By DAVID B. CORBIN

Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times

Watch out for the Westfield High School baseball team because they plan to be quite aggressive on the base pads this season. The Blue Devils have plenty of speed and intend to use it to make opposing pitchers nervous once they get on base.

Last year, the Blue Devils had some speed but did not key on it like they plan this year. They finished 14-8 and had four players who received area recognition. Greg Freisen and Lamont Turner were selected All-Union/Middlesex and Phil Orsini and Bob Baykowski were honorable mentions.

Freisen was a solid first baseman and was effective as a pitcher. Turner

showed power with the "metal stick" and was lightening fast once he got on the base pads. Orsini was deceptively powerful offensively and was outstanding as a center fielder. Baykowski, the number one pitcher, played shortstop when not pitching.

Of the four, only Turner returns and will share the responsibilities of team captains with senior Luke Mistretta. Turner, who will play shortstop, is a major part of the Blue Devil

base-running attack. As a quality hitter who will bat second in the lineup, Turner will give opposing pitchers fits. Mistretta, the number one pitcher, also has blazing speed with base larceny in mind.

Seniors Brandon Doerr at third, Kevin McCormack in center field and outfielder Jason Merritt along with junior outfielder Chris Giacone also possess speed and will be dangerous on the base pads.

"We did a lot of base running in doors. We try to simulate what goes on outside but it's very difficult because inside, it is only 65-70 feet between bases," said Blue Devil Head Coach Bob Brewster. "Out here, it is actually easier because of the distance. What we are looking to do is

Highlander Boys Think Big; Aim for County Baseball Title

By FRED LECOMTE

Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times

There is no question about it, the Governor Livingston High School baseball team has high expectations this season. And, they should. Last year the Highlanders sported a 21-7 record, after a 1-4 start. Highlander Head Coach Bill Howard and assistant coach Chris Roof highlighted their season by defeating Summit for the North Jersey, Section 2, Group 2 crown.

Last year the Highlanders lost to Glen Rock 8-7 in the Group 2 State semifinals. "Look for this years' team to be a formidable foe for everyone." Howard commented.

The Highlanders have seven returning varsity players and are expected to be very solid and strong offensively. Chris Butler in center field, Terence Reilly at shortstop, Bobby Phillips at second base, Derrick Writenour at third base and Brian Schmidt at first base are the Highlander returning seniors. Juniors Henry Hansen and Jason

Guidicipietro will be playing in right field and in left field, respectively.

Junior Eric Cantagallo will be doing the catching and brother Mark Cantagallo will share duties at second and third base. In addition, junior Mike Farrell will back-up at catcher and second base and Frank Cavallo, the only sophomore will play the outfield.

Although expressing a concern directed toward the inexperience of his pitching staff, Coach Howard said. "Our 1999 goal is to capture the Conference title and to become the Union County Champions. The key toward reaching this goal certainly will depend on everyone to remain injury free."

When not playing second, Phillips will be the number one pitcher. After a 1-3 start, Phillips then went on to win six-straight games with his fourth loss recorded in the semi-finals of the states. The sudden turn around came about when the entire team came together as one with outstanding fielding plays and timely hitting.

"I fed on our teams momentum for the balance of the season thus record

ing a 7-4 record," commented Phillips.

Writenour is expected to be the number two pitcher. Right handers Hansen, Mark Cantagallo, Reilly and Farrell will make up the remainder of the pitching staff.

Offensively, the Highlanders look awesome. The entire line up is sound, powerful and explosive. Butler, the possible lead off hitter, has excellent speed and carries a high on-base percentage.

"I expect to be a big contributor this year, my confidence has been developed at an all time high," said Butler.

Reilly, who batted .330 last season always makes good contact, therefore count on him contributing with more base hits. "If I make good contact as expected, good things will happen throughout our line up," commented Reilly.

The big gun last year, Mark Cantagallo, batted an impressive .430. He is the all-around clutch hit

what Itchy Johnson of Southern Illinois taught years ago. Anytime the ball is in the dirt, his boys were taking a base."

Brewster added, "He claimed that he never had a kid thrown out and I laughed about it, but last season, we had two or three teams do that to us and one of them was Cranford. They kept stealing base after base after base on us and it was very disheartening for us. So, we decided that we were going to turn that around and do it to other teams. We are going to run on the dirt ball. We call it the dirt ball drill. It is a double drill because we throw off the mound and the catcher works on blocking pitches, but we are working on reacting."

Brewster continued, "We have six or seven kids who can really run, so we want to take advantage of that. Years ago, against Union, I watched their kids take huge leads and wondered how they were able to get away

with that. The Union coach indicated that he told all of his kids to get picked off once in scrimmages. It makes them learn their limits."

Aware of the psychology involved, Brewster explained, "Having been a catcher myself, I know what running does to a catcher, a pitcher. And, when you get a reputation of a team who wants to run, the pitchers get more nervous. The catchers won't call as many curve balls. This is what speed does to you. Speed never goes in a slump!"

Junior Brian Flynn takes over behind the plate and is expected to be quite effective. Flynn, a left-handed batter who will lead off for the Blue Devils, is very good with the "stick" and has an uncanny ability to hit well to the opposite field.

"He has been hitting the ball well so far in the scrimmages," said Brewster. "We are working a little on his defense because he was a parttime catcher with us last year. I want to try to get him to block pitches more. He thinks that he has to catch everything right now."

Brewster pointed out, "There are three things that you look for in catchers. Number one, can he handle a pitcher? Number two, can he hit? Number three, can he throw? And Brian can do all three very well. I believe that he has a world of potential."

Mistretta will be the number one pitcher and junior Oscar Perez will be the number two pitcher. Seniors Jeff Johnson, Randy Majocha and Brandon Doerr will also assume pitching responsibilities. Senior Gabe Perez, who would have been one of the major pitchers, got a full-scholarship to Fordham University and will miss the baseball season.

This spring, the weather has been wet and some practices had to be inside. Brewster commented, "Monday we had a chance to work inside on our pitching and it helped. Jeff (Johnson) is doing a nice job for us right now. Last Saturday, he got banged around early with GL (Governor Livingston) but he settled down.

Seniors Will Hannis and Majocha, at first base, and senior Kevin Anton and junior Jeff Bendix, at second, have been competing for those positions. Senior Josh Falcone is expected to see some action in the outfield.

Mistretta will be the starting pitcher on opening day, Thursday, April 1, against Scotch Plains-Fanwood.
