The Avenger Softball team closed out the regular season with a 4-0 win over the Bay View/PCD Co-op team Tuesday (5/21/24). It also happened to be Senior Night.

This year the team is saying goodbye to six players. They are #6 Teaghan Bristol, #8 Margaret Neville, and her twin #15 Cat Neville, #18 Sachi Chan, #20 Samantha Lombardi, and #24 Ava Fairbanks.

Ava Fairbanks pitched a complete game, only allowing 2 hits. She had 14 strikeouts.

The highlight of the game was a homer by Margaret Neville.

This was the last game of the regular season and the Avengers ended with a 12-7-0 overall record. Not bad for their season in Division 1 after winning the D2 state title last year.

The team went on to beat North Kingstown on Friday, 1-0, in the playoff preliminary round.
