Colonia Softball comes together

On March 21st Coach Ann Marie Cyrana and the players of the CHS softball team held an annual clinic. The clinic has been done for years and the younger girls of Colonia softball always love it, and the parents enjoy the free lessons from experienced softball players.

The clinic had over 100 girls ranging from kindergarten to 8th grade, all who love the game of softball and want to learn more.

Coach Cyrana and assistant coaches Courtney Gambetta, Brittany Morgan, and Nicole Albelo split the high school players into pairs and had them work in stations. Some of those stations included skills like fielding, throwing hitting and even some fun challenging activities.

In her 12th season as a head coach at Colonia High School, Coach Cyrana loves helping the younger softball players grow and become better. “We have been doing the clinic for about 3 or 4 years now and we have been outside on the CMS Softball fields except in the snow, sleet, rain, or cold. I love seeing the younger girls enjoying themselves and having a good time.”

At the end of the clinic, Coach Cyrana had a speech about being a softball player and how all of the high school players started out like the younger girls in rec. All girls and coaches got together for a picture and the girls received bracelets with the Eric LeGrand “bELieve”on it.

“This was my first year at the clinic and it ended up being a lot of fun!I think we were really able to help a lot of the girls and accomplish what we are set out for. I am glad that I am part of such a great program and it was very entertaining to help the younger girls. I felt like I was doing a good thing and bettering them as a player and I thought they were adorable. it was very enjoyable!” said sophomore Michelle D’Alessandro.

The high school team will continue to host the clinic and hopes the younger girls of Colonia softball will be back to enjoy the fun activities the older girls have planned. Coach Cyrana also mentioned the idea of expanding it to all 3 high schools in Woodbridge Township and softball programs making it one big clinic.
