Aftershock take U14 softball championship

The Aftershock U14 softball travel team, in its inaugural season, won the 2015 USSSA state championships by going undefeated in pool play.

The team is based out of Milford and was led by the battery of Grace Whitman and Kacy O’Connor.

After winning the first two games handily (12-4; 10-3), the clinching game was tied in the top of the seventh with the bases loaded and one out when Megan Flanagan rocketed a triple over the centerfielder’s head to clear the bases.

She then stole home on the next pitch to seal the 8-4 victory.

All eleven players contributed by playing great defense and racking up a team batting average of .424 for the tournament.
