TRUMBULL — St. Joseph defeated Westhill, 7-1, on Wednesday. The victory was the 200th in the career of Cadet head coach Jeff Babineau.
“I just told the girls that they are part of a long history of fine teams here at St. Joseph,” Babineau said. “Each class of players have contributed to these 200 wins.”
Babineau, now 200-40, took over the program in 2010 and promptly led the Cadets to their fifth state title.
St. Joseph, with a 5-2 win over Griswold in last year’s Class M final, made it six championships in 10 trips.
The Cadets have won the FCIAC title four of the last five seasons.
“St. Joseph is just a great place to coach,” Babineau said. “Having the school support the team, including administrators and staff, is amazing.”
Prior to his time at St. Joseph, Babineau, a Connecticut Softball Hall of Fame player, coached the Ansonia-based Xtreme Chaos travel summer league team for eight seasons.
