Welcome to Lynnfield Girls Softball

The Lynnfield Girls Softball League's dual mission is to provide a fun, instructional and safe outlet for girls to learn and enjoy the awesome sport of softball, and to provide a healthy feeder program that will help create and maintain a consistently strong high school softball program.

Summer Teams Finish Strong

U14, U12 and U10 Teams Battle to the End

The three Lynnfield teams in the Middle Essex Summer Softball League improved markedly as the season went on, with the U10, U12 and U14 teams recording a combined eight wins. The teams, who all featured several players eligible to compete in lower age divisions (i.e., "playing up"), bettered last year's win output at these three levels substantially.

The U14 team won its final game of the season, 15-10, over a Stoneham Spartans team that they had lost to by a similar score (15-9) earlier in the season. It was the team's only win, though the U14 girls were in contention for several games, including a 13-9 loss to a Haverhill team that finished 8-4.

The U12 Lynnfield Polar Bears began the season with two lopsided losses, but every remaining game was competitive. The team fell to 0-5 with a one-run loss to Danvers, followed by two-run losses to Tri-Town and Wakefield. The squad got on the winning side with a 13-12 squeaker over Salem, and ended up winning three of its final six games contested on the field. The team ended the season with back-to-back wins over teams from Wakefield, including avenging the two-run defeat to Wakefield Red, 15-7. The girls also dropped another one-run affair vs. Tri-Town in that stretch.

The U10 team finished 4-8 and impressed in a division that mixed both A and B divisions. The team's wins came over Marblehead (4-2), Melrose (14-7), North Reading (13-10) and Salem (12-1). It also suffered a one-run loss to a Malden team that finished 9-4-1.

As encouraging as the play was on the field, the season was somewhat disappointing in that the coaches consistently struggled to get enough players to some of the games. Too many games were forfeited -- one is too many -- which is an issue our league must address next season.

Thanks to all the coaches who volunteered their time, the parents who communicated with the coaches about their daughters' availability, and the players who did their best to make as many games as they could.
