Congratulations to the Goonies Softball Team for Placing 9th at the USSSA Worlds! After a rough start in pool play and missing some key players from the team, The Goonies fought hard and finished 2nd place in the NJ USSA Worlds warm up. They battled hard to beat some top ranked teams in the area. They then went up to Viera, FL for the USSA Worlds! After playing a great and resileient game, The Goonies left Worlds with 9th Place, an amazing feat to accomplish!
Coach Tommy Mollica, who founded the team in 2015, had this to say about his team and their time at Worlds:
“We really just went down to worlds with the thought of having fun and taking it one game at a time, we did not hit as well as we’d hoped but the team stuck together as a family picked each other up and we were able to battle and win some games. We played with determination and heart and honestly that’s the only thing I can ask for out of this group. They gave me everything they had. Next year is our year, big things for ThE GooNiEs!”
Congratulations once again! We can’t wait to see what ThE GooNiEs do next year!
