After a regional run, the Coral Springs Charter Softball season ends



Coral Springs, Florida – After making another participation in the Regionals, the Coral Springs Charter softball team concluded their season.

From 2015 to 2019, the Panthers had won five straight state titles. Nevertheless, the pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 season. They had won the regionals the previous three years, but this time they were eliminated.

In the Panthers’ first Regional match, they defeated Immaculata-La Stalle 15-0. With two hits and four RBIs in the first inning, Cameron Thiele helped the Panthers leap out to a 10-0 lead. Along with Jessie Sacca, Stephanie Basso, and Kate Maston driving in runs, Kayleigh Cuccia also hit a two-run triple. Six additional points were scored by CSC in the second half, with four goals apiece from Bree Martinelli, Jazzy Chung, and Jordan Shurpin, who all came off the bench. In the game’s three innings, Courtney Wahlbrink and Gia Schirripa struck out seven batters without giving up a single.

CSC defeated Westminster Christian Academy 8-0 in their second game. The Panthers took a 2-0 lead early in the game thanks to a two-run home run blasted by Gio Gurgel. Later in the game, she added another double, and in the fourth inning, Addison Michel’s RBI single gave CSC a third run. With two RBIs from Heather Robertson and one from Alivia Taibl, the Panthers increased their advantage to 6-0 in the fifth inning. A subsequent inning saw Cameron Thiele add RBI hits as well, but Courtney Wahlbrink was dominant with six shutout innings and five strikeouts. In her debut game of the season, Sophia Bertorelli entered the game and retired the side.

Somerset Academy and CSC rematched in the championship game. CSC struggled offensively and was limited to just four hits in the first five innings following a 1-0 loss in extra innings. After taking the lead in the sixth, the Stallions scored three more runs on top of that in the seventh home run. The Panthers ended their season 26-4 despite cutting the margin in half in the second half of the game and recording the final out on the base paths.

Three of their players will go on to play softball in college. Maston will play at Florida Gulf Coast University, Taibl at Stetson University, and Basso at Coastal Carolina University.
