Kayla Santos and Dom DelBene split the catching duties; DelBene belted a long homer out of Mack Park in the sectional finals against Salem. Sara Hayward and Katie Tansey are at first base; Ashley Jenkins and Courtney Sabino handle second; Ashley Ghostlaw and Katie O’Brien are the shortstops; and Michelle McHugh is at third base, where Jenkins also helps out.
Briana Silva, Paige Hayward and Meghan Lurvy are the starting outfielders for Peabody, but any of the infielders could also see action out there as well.
“We’re a well balanced team. It’s nice to be able to move the girls around to different positions,” said Hayward, who is assisted by Steve Ghostlaw and Ken O’Brien.
“We took the three best players from each team, and it’s a friendly group that encourages each other.”
