Everett High School softball was dropped from the MIAA playoff ranks on Sunday with a, 9-4, loss to top-seeded Concord- Carlisle in the first round, but how they improved before it ended suggest the team’s headed for a new start.
Yes, the Crimson Tide may have lost to maybe the best overall softball team on the north side of the division 1 bracket, but the team actually took giant steps towards making next season an even greater success.
Following the playoff loss, the team finished 13-9 — its best overall record in the last 3 years.
“People expected us to be slaughter-ruled and we went out there and gave it what we got,” said EHS head coach Stacy Schiavo on playing top-ranked CC. “The turnaround in the girls play shocked a lot of people I think,” she said.
