The Gray-New Gloucester softball team got a jump in its Western B championship game when Alex Thompson drilled a lead-off triple to start the game. But things quickly swung the other way. Greely senior pitcher Danielle Cimino struck out the next two batters and got a pop out to escape the threat. “I had to manage the inning,” said Cimino. “I had to be mentally tough. I couldn’t let it get to me. I had to stay calm and within myself.” Though the Patriots would later get the lead first, Gray-NG quickly watched the upper hand slip away again. Greely took the lead in the bottom of the third and more missed opportunities for the Patriots proved costly as the Rangers claimed the 2-1 victory. “I told them to keep their heads up,” said Gray-NG coach Amanda Harmon. “They should be proud. It’s an accomplishment to get to this game. It definitely wasn’t the way we wanted it to end. We played hard to get here and fought for every game.” (read more at Lewiston Sun Journal)
