Bill Bloxsom of the Stratford Star has a story on UMass softball player and Stratford native Christine Della Vecchia. The middle infielder is coming off her freshmen season for the Minutewomen and rebounded from knee and hand injuries to play for the Stratford Brakettes. She gives the UMass athletic training staff (led by softball athletic trainer Mike Welch) credit for getting her back on the field so fast after her knee surgery this spring. Della Vecchia will be looking to use her Brakettes experience to become an even bigger contributor for UMass this coming season.
Led by several UMass players and alums, the Stratford Brakettes won the Women's Major Softball National Championship on Sunday by defeating the St. Louis Saints, 4-1. Jessica Serio had three hits and a RBI, Denise Denis collected two doubles, Christine Della Vecchia scored a run, and Carly Normandin made several key defensive plays in center field. The American Chronicle and The Stamford Advocate have coverage. Also, The Stamford Advocate also has a story on the Brakettes, who have had financial difficulties as of late, have announced that the team will play in 2011.
