Wolcott Tech Sports Roundup

Softball 

Our softball team was lucky to get two away games in with schools that have access to artificial turf fields.

The girls were able travel to Cheney Tech in Manchester for a season opening win.  The final score was 15-0.

Mary Dinice pitched a no-hitter. Dinice also had an RBI single and a run scored for Wolcott Tech and Alicia Winn added two singles, two RBI’s and two runs scored. Madison Rubino chipped in with a double, a run scored while Morgan Rubino contributed a two-run single.

On Saturday afternoon, the Lady Wildcats Softball Team traveled to Municipal Stadium to play Sacred Heart on the best weather day of the week.

In spite of a well-played game, the Wildcats fell to Sacred Heart 12-0. Maura Nelson, Megan Dorosh and Alicia Winn all had hits for the Wildcats.‚Äč

Dinice had three strikeouts and Abbie Hanlon had one strike out. 

Volleyball

The Wolcott Tech Boys Volleyball team ended their week with a trip to Hall High School. They brought the match to four games and had several bright spots throughout the evening but fell 3-1.

Junior Setter Aidan Bernhardt had 25 assists, 15 digs. The offense was led by Junior Middle Hitter Chris Speaker with 14 kills and 2 blocks. Junior Outside Hitter Angel Lopez brought 6 kills, 8 digs, and 2 blocks. Junior Outside Hitter Alex Sherman stepped into the varsity lineup for the first time and contributed 2 kills, 2 aces, and 3 digs. Sherman added great hustle to the court and kept our team motivated.

The JV team fought a hard battle and had great play at the net by Ron Redmer, Blake Sanford, Ethan Galinski and Jaden Ortiz. The defense was jump started by Brian Tacuri, Ethan Mathieu and freshman setter Luis Sanchez ran the court very well.

It was a great start to the season for our young team, who are making great progress every day.

Baseball 

Our baseball team has had two games rescheduled, (one of which was rescheduled twice), softball has seen one game rescheduled, and our golf matches have been moved as well. This means that opening week for baseball, track, and golf all begin the week of April 9.
