The Revere High School softball team showed a propensity for scoring a lot of runs in 2023. Senior player Emma Cassinello helped lead an offense that scored in double digits numerous times.
Cassinello, who mostly served as the team’s designated hitter, and junior teammate Riley Straccia, who manned the shortstop position, were named to this year’s Greater Boston League all-star squad. Cassinello displayed power by socking plenty of extra-base hits during the season and driving in her share of runs. Straccia was a strong performer in the field and contributed to the offense as well.
Cassinello was one of just two seniors on this year’s young Revere team that featured mostly underclassmen players. Arianna Keohane was the other senior for this year’s Patriots.
