WHS tops Agawam

WESTFIELD – It may be early, but the Westfield High School softball team is off to a solid start.
Westfield knocked off neighboring Agawam 11-2 Tuesday to improve to 3-0. Kate Puza had a monster day at the plate, Maddy Atkocaitis batted to perfection, and ace pitcher Sarah McNerney excelled on the mound.
“I couldn’t be prouder,” Westfield coach Joe Stella said. “The kids really stepped up.”
Puza blasted a three-run homer, belted two doubles, and drove in six runs with a 3-for-4 effort. Atkocaitis went 3-for-3 with a double, walk, and RBI.
Jesse Pratt collected a pair of hits for Westfield, which fell behind early 2-0 on a home run from the opposition. Bombers’ Maddie Brockney (walk, RBI), Vicki Camp (2 RBIs), Karly Mastello, Jules Sharon, and Lexi Minicucci also had one hit apiece.
McNerney pitched a complete game. She scattered six hits, struck out three batters, and walked one.
“Sarah buttoned down the hatches, and really did a great job,” Westfield coach Joe Stella said. “She kept them off balance.”
Agawam was coming off a 17-hit effort the previous day against Minnechaug.
