BSGE’s girls’ varsity softball team, Lady Sting, has started the season strong, despite multiple game postponements in March due to snowy field conditions. Led by coaches Virge Ramos and Aly Lakhaney, and team captain Nina Don ’16, the team has a current record of 9-1, and leads its division. After winning 7 regular season games, the team secured itself a spot in the Division B playoffs for the 5th consecutive year. At this point, winning additional games will help Lady Sting earn a higher ranking and a better position in the playoffs, and the team is hoping to finish the season strong. Lady Sting’s final 5 games are all the week of May 4th, after which the playoffs begin the week of May 18th.
The team, which was undefeated for most of the 2015 season, in both league games and scrimmages, suffered its first loss on Friday, May 2nd, to Queens High School Complex. However, Lady Sting remains hopeful and is shooting to make it farther in the playoffs than last year, when the team was eliminated in the first round by Franklin K. Lane High School.
UPDATE AS OF 5/13/15: Lady Sting completed its 2015 regular season with a record of 13-1, and is awaiting playoff rank determination.
