OA's Mattea Sarnecki had a strong pitching performing in a complete game effort.

First year coach Lindsey Allison guides her team to a 2-0 start in 2012.
Last year, the Oliver Ames softball team finished with a 14-8 record and won the Davenport Division to record its best season in school history under head coach Bob Huckabee. In 2012, the Lady Tigers will look to take the next step towards Hockomock League supremacy. But, this time around, the team will be led by first year coach Lindsey Allison, replacing Huckabee who left for Apponequet High School after five years at the helm. So far the transition has been pretty successful for Allison as her team is off to a 2-0 start. “I’m very excited,” said Allison (OA class of 2004), a former catcher for the softball team. “They don’t like to lose. They dig deep and they make all the adjustments necessary. It’s been a very good start so far.” …

Romero is the first Oliver Ames softball player to make the state tournament all four years.
From an early age, Nicole Romero has eaten, slept, and breathed all things baseball. She is a lifelong Red Sox fan and names Ted Williams and Kevin Youkilis as her favorite players. In grade school, Nicole took to the Little League fields as one of the only girls in Easton Youth Baseball and more than held her own against the boys. In ninth grade, she made the transition from baseball to softball, and since then Romero has become the first player in OA Softball history to play in the state tournament for four consecutive seasons. Both catching and playing first base over her illustrious career, Nicole served as co-captain of the Lady Tigers this season and helped lead them to a 14-8 record and Davenport Division championship. “We …

Tigers' future looks bright after claiming the Davenport Division Title in 2011.
There’s no denying that Oliver Ames softball coach Bob Huckabee has taken the program to new heights since taking the helm in 2007. After a record-breaking 14-8 season in 2011 – a season that also saw the Tigers capture the Davenport Division title and a spot in the Division 1 South sectionals – Huckabee has taken this team one step further. “It was a fantastic year for Oliver Ames softball,” Huckabee said after the 1-0 loss to Franklin Last Thursday in the preliminary round. “Anytime you win 14 games and you win your division in the Hockomock League is something to be proud of. “All in all it was a terrific season. I’m really proud of the kids and I am looking forward to next year already.” Indeed it was a season to remember for OA and …

Tigers end their season at 12-8 after 1-0 loss.
Often times there is little room for error when teams enter tournament play. That statement proved true on Thursday afternoon when the Oliver Ames softball team (13th seed) fell to Franklin (ranked 20th) in the preliminary round of the MIAA Division 1 south sectional, 1-0 at Stonehill College. After three perfect innings by Elizabeth Batsinelas, Franklin’s captain and leadoff hitter Ellen Czuba advanced to first base after a fielding error. From there, shortstop Becca Siefert catcher Michaela Criscione drove in the games' only run with an RBI double to left-center field. Despite the error and the RBI double, the Tigers were able to shrug things off defensively behind Batsinelas’ effort. The junior ace recorded six strikeouts and allowed …
