All has been well and continues to be well for the No. 2-ranked Fitch softball team.
Nalissa Amar was 3-for-3 with a double and a run scored as the defending Class L softball champs and current No. 2 in the GameTimeCT / Register Top 10 Poll, defeated rival Norwich Free Academy 6-0 Wednesday.
The victory was Fitch’s 43rd-straight win (Update: in the regular season) and clinched the Eastern Connecticut Conference Large division title for the Falcons.
It was the 12th shutout of the season for the Falcons. Pitcher Caroline Taber improved to 14-0. She allowed five hits and struck out seven.
Senior Jackie Lewis was 2-for-3 with a run scored and helped start Fitch’s decisive six-run third inning.
“I just try to state calm and make contact,” Lewis, a captain, told The Day of New London. “I know everybody else will hit me in. Everyone’s so talented. They make it easy to be a senior. They don’t make me nervous.”
Lewis, who will play at Eastern Connecticut State next year, has hit six home runs and has 35 RBIs, according to The Day.
