BHS Softball Team Wins 11 Games in Four Weeks

May 6, 2024

The spring season in high school sports is compressed.

A good example is the Bedford High School softball team, scheduled to play 20 regular season games in 45 days. 

After 28 of those days, the Bucs have a record of 11-1. But there’s no time to relax and contemplate this almost unblemished success – there are three more games to play over the next five days, beginning at Miss G Field Wednesday vs. Acton-Boxborough.

The girls beat Watertown, 13-3, on Monday for their sixth straight win. On Saturday at Concord-Carlisle, Bedford took care of the Patriots by a score of 7-1. Leading 2-0, Bedford put the game away with a three-run fifth.

Four of the Bedford runs were unearned, while the Bucs played errorless ball. The defense only had to make one of the outs as junior Alyx Rossi continued her storybook season, striking out 20 Patriots. She also had three of Bedford’s seven hits.

“We’ve been picking it up with the bats and have really been nailing the clutch hits lately. Several of our key moments so far have come on two out hits and two strike counts,” Head Coach Dennis Walsh said. “We’ve also had great success manufacturing runs lately with savvy and aggressive base running while getting our bunts down.”

He noted that with Rossi’s pitching dominance, “Lately, teams have tried to bunt on us and we’ve done a great job handling them.” That was the case at home on Friday in a 7-0 victory over Westford Academy. Rossi struck out 13 this time.

Sami Langone and Ani Eskandarian drove in two runs apiece for Bedford. Rossi had three base hits and leadoff hitter Addi Poulter two to pace the 10-hit attack.

“Injuries have pushed us to dig pretty deep and all 14 players have contributed and filled a variety of roles,” Walsh noted.
