Eagle hurler, slugger tops Addison Independent softball all-star squad

ADDISON COUNTY — A year ago the Mount Abraham Union High School softball team won the program’s first-ever state championship.

This year Coach Don McCormick’s talent-laden Eagles came back for more, winning a second-straight Division II title with a program-best 18-2 record.

Many Eagles played major roles in that accomplishment, but none more than a senior pitcher who won 12 of those games and batted better than .500 out of the cleanup spot in the batting order: Audrey Shahan, the 2018 Addison Independent Softball Player of the Year.

BRANDON — After 33 years, Otter Valley Union High School softball coach Pattie Candon has stepped down, a decision she announced last week.

In deciding to leave the post Candon cited the length of her tenure and the fact there are many good young players on a team that finished this past season strong after a slow start.

“I just feel this program is in a good place, and 33 years is a long time,” said Candon, who waited until after the season to tell her athletes about a decision she said she had made earlier.

This is a football column. No, not what we in the USA call football. Those who want to discuss whether the Giants should sign Odell Beckham Jr., whatever the heck Ben Roethlisberger was saying about his contract this weekend, or why the Patriots drafted a running back in the first round should look elsewhere, at least for today.

Because it’s time for the Copa Mundial de Futbol, the Coupe du Monde de Football, the World Cup of Football.
