Pittsfield's Tobin Named County MVP
Pittsfield High School catcher Hayley Tobin was voted the Most Valuable Player for 2017 by the Berkshire County Softball Coaches.
Tobin batted nearly .500 with 25 RBIs while backstopping a Pittsfield team that went 21-3, reaching the Western Massachusetts Division 1 Championship Game.
She is joined on the all-Berkshire County team by her sister, Pittsfield shortstop Maddie Tobin, her battery mate, Giuliana Pierce and teammates Erin Murphy and Brittney Perkett.
Pierce is one of four pitchers on the all-Berkshire squad.
She is joined by Wahconah’s Allie Borowsky, Mount Everett’s Chandler DeGrenier and Taconic’s Ashley Keegan.
Division 2 semi-finalist Wahconah put four players on the all-Berkshire squad. Joining Borowsky are Julia O’Connor, Jessica Warren and Ashley Zink.
DeGrenier is joined by teammate Devan Galli from the Division 3 finalist Eagles.
The league’s coaches also named all-Northern Division and all-Southern Division squads.
On the former, Taconic had four selections: Kailey Bell, Rebecca Herbert, Aubrey Lazits and Janee Walker. Mount Greylock and Pittsfield each had two: Mounties Rachel Voller and Elena Cerveira and Generals Natasha Shade and Tess Lyon. The all-Northern Division also includes Drury’s Mia Howland and Wahconah’s Abby Wells.
Mount Everett placed five players on the all-Southern Division team: Ali Brassard, Kersten Cutlip, Jaclyn Derwitsch, Tori Seward and Madison Ulrich.
Monument Mountain was next with three all-South selections: Daina Henry, Ari Saporito and Isabella Whalen. Hoosac Valley’s Abby Jamross and Lenox’s Anna Lynch also were named to the team.
