At 4-0 and in first place, Head Coach Kyla Graves notices a clear difference between this season and last.
“We have proved that we are a powerhouse. This season is already very different from last year,” Graves said. “Last year, we had one of the worst records in the league, but this year, we are in first place.”
According to Co-Captain Rebecca Calhoun ’19, the team’s success is largely attributed to improved teamwork.
“Throughout all the years I have been on this team, we have never done this well. I think that the team is working very well together this year,” Calhoun said.
Angeline Nur Dervisevic ’21 echoed Calhoun’s sentiments , adding that she hopes to continue the winning streak.
“My hopes are that we continue our undefeated record and beat every team we play,” Nur Dervisevic said.
The team has three games remaining, and the squad is vying for a league title.

Outfielder Ethan Eastwood ’18 also spoke about the bond between upperclassmen on the team.
Eastwood said, “The squad is working well together, as most of us have been on the same team for many years. We play as one unit and bond together as a bear does with its cubs. We approach our games with the same vigor and concentration as a cheetah stalking its prey.”
Yesterday, Grant Iuliano ’18 pitched a no-hitter over seven innings with seventeen strikeouts for a 7-3 victory.
“My arm was feeling loose yesterday, and Dylan called a great game behind the plate,” said Iuliano.
Head Coach Joe Iuliano said that his team has faced an especially difficult schedule, even with poor weather causing several game cancellations.
“The game against Gann is for all the marbles in terms of the regular season,” Coach Iuliano said. “We are defending our regular season title and looking for the first seed in the tournament. And we want to pay them back for the loss earlier in the season. Should be a great game. We are pumped up for it.”
