Mackensie Compton – Providence College (Softball)
Coach Dave Chichilitti says: “Mackensie Compton was a four-year starter at Neshaminy, and she was lucky enough to come on as a freshman on our 2013 team that went to the state finals. She played a very important role on that team, which says a lot about how great of a player she was to come in as a freshman and play with all those other great players and contribute.
“Providence is getting an excellent player in Mackensie. She’s one of the hardest working girls I’ve ever worked with. There’s nothing she’s ever missed. She is completely dedicated to the sport in every facet.”
Sophie Beretski – Kutztown University (Softball)
Coach Dave Chichilitti says: “Sophie also came to us as a freshman and also was a part of the 2013 team. Unfortunately, her season was cut short because of a shoulder injury. She came back the following year as a sophomore and took over the starting shortstop role. She’s led our team in hitting and also happens to be one of our best defensive players. The shortstop is the anchor of the infield, and she played a very important role for us.”
Cailyn Seely – Mercer County Community College (Softball)
Coach Dave Chichilitti says: “Cailyn was a pitcher for us and would have been good enough to start for any other team in our league. We looked to her to provide pitching stability for us throughout the season. She swings a powerful bat and can add a lot to an offense. She’s a real good kid, and there’s no doubt in my mind she’ll be all-conference at Mercer.”
