Robbinsville’s 11-year-old softball all-star team won the district title July 16 after sweeping West Windsor/Cranbury-Plainsboro.

The Robbinsville 11-year-old softball all-stars swept the West Windsor/Cranbury-Plainsboro team by scores of 10-3 and 14-1 to capture the District 12 title on Tuesday night (July 16).

In Game 1 at West Windsor on July 15, Alyssa Whitman pitched a six-inning complete game, striking out three and limiting West Windsor to just two singles.  Offensively, the girls were led by Whitman, who was 3-3 with two RBIs; Rachel Gillmer, who was 3-4, including a double and RBI; and Allie Taylor, who chipped in with two RBIs as well. Jordyn David and Calysta Laurente had timely key hits as well. Annie Katz and Hannah James played exceptional defense, recording several key outs in the game.

In Game 2 at Tantum Park on July 16, Robbinsville cruised to a 14-1 victory.  Devon Witt pitched a complete game limiting WW/C-P to two hits while striking out five.  The offensive was led by Gillmer, who had three hits including a double and three RBIs, while several other girls (James, Witt, Taylor, Katz, Whitman, Clara Martin and Kate Caputo) all delivered key hits and RBIs to help put the game away. Emma Binder was outstanding behind the plate in both games, shutting down the WW/C-P running game.

The Robbinsville coaching staff of Ed James, Eric Katz and Ray Whitman said they were extremely impressed with the girls’ focus, total team effort and work ethic over the past several weeks. The Robbinsville 11-year-old softball all-stars advance to the NJ state championship bracket and open play on Aug. 8 in Parsippany against the eventual Section 1 winner.
