They were all-stars on the field all season long for our Girls’ Varsity Softball team, and now they are officially Western New England Prep School Girls Softball Association (WNEPSGSA) All-Stars!
Congratulations to Ava Faruol ’24 and Sophia Faruol ’25 for being named to the team and joining some of Western New England’s best softball players for the game at the Choate Rosemary Hall field earlier this month.
At the time of their selection, Ava had a .517 batting average with 3 doubles, a triple, a home run, 7 RBI, and 11 runs scored. Sophia was batting .440 and also had 3 doubles and a triple to go with 5 RBI and 15 runs. She also compiled 43 strikeouts and just 5 walks over 33 innings as a pitcher!
“The All-Star game was a great afternoon of camaraderie for both players and coaches,” said Head Coach Julio Omaña P ’19, ’20, and his team’s All-Stars were in complete agreement.
“It was amazing,” Sophia said. “I am so grateful to have the opportunity to represent Canterbury and compete with other impressive athletes around me, including my sister!”
The game was more enjoyable than competitive, as evidenced by the fact that no one kept score or recorded stats for the contest. And that’s just the way Ava liked it. “It was so much fun to see the high level of talent from each player,” she shared. “We made many new friends—some even from our previous rivals! Overall, it was a terrific experience, and we could not be more thankful!”
And we could not be prouder of our latest All-Star Saints!
