Revere softball team beats Lynn English

Revere softball opened the season on a high note with a 10-7 win over Greater Boston League rival Lynn English. Shayna Smith and Lea Doucette each had solo home runs. Anna Doucette and Caleigh Joyce each got their first varsity hits. Frankie Reed and Brianna Miranda chipped in with a hit each. Danni Randall pitched all seven innings. She finished with 14 strikeouts.

“We had some great field work from Isabella Qualtieri and Luiza Santos and Jordan Martelli as well,” Revere coach Megan O’Donnell said. “Riley Stracci made a few good plays at shortstop for us, too.”

Revere came back to win after being down 7-1 in the second inning.


Girls tennis team banking on returning players

The Revere girls tennis team opens up April 10 against Somerville at home. The Patriots have many returning players who should add a great deal to the team as well as new players with a lot of potential, according to coach Carla Maniscalco.

“With all the rain we’ve been getting, I am still working on challenge matches to determine the lineup,” Maniscalco said heading into this week.

Jaimy Gomez, Kelly Landaverde, Karla Leal Robles and Lesly Calderon Lopez are all senior returnees, and the coach is expecting that they will all be important role models for the rest of the team.


Girls lacrosse team gearing up for strong run

Amy Rotger heads into her third season as the Revere girls lacrosse coach.

“We are a very young team this year, and our goal is to go out there and give it our all,” Rotger said. “This is a lot of our girls’ first year playing lacrosse so learning the sport and having fun while competing are the most important.”

Revere finished in second place in the Greater Boston League last season and finished with a 10-11 record.

Junior Jayla Foster is the team’s captain. “She brings experience and great leadership to our team,” Rotger said. “She goes out and gives it her all every game and is always helping out her teammates who don’t know the game as well as she does.”

The team only has three girls returning from last season. The goal is to “create a positive environment where we work fun and have fun doing it. Our goal is that by the end of this season, not only do these girls have teammates but also have forever friendships,” Rotger said.

“I love the enthusiasm these girls bring to the game of lacrosse,” Rotger added. “They come to practice each day and give it their all. That’s all you can ask for as a coach.”

Ultimately, Rotger wants to bring back some popularity for girls lacrosse to the city of Revere. “We hope that young girls see how fun lacrosse is and are willing to give it a shot,” Rotger said. “Being a part of a team is such a crucial part of life, and the ability to build lifelong relationships goes a long way.”
