Jocelyn Mettey, eighth grade, Hampshire Regional

Pitched Raiders to Western Massachusetts Division 2 championship and a state semifinal berth. ... Only allowed one run in Western Mass. Tournament. ... Threw three no-hitters, including one in varsity debut against Chicopee. ... Compiled a 13-2 record with 123 strikeouts against 27 walks. ... Hit .394 with 21 RBIs.

“We worked really hard on location, establishing the inside pitch and throwing the breaking ball away. You could see her game step up when she started to excel at that. Joss just had fun. She’s out there throwing the ball and having fun. She pitched in a lot of big games before the tournament. Her poise – when things went wrong and I went out there and talked to her, she was just OK with it and kept moving on.” — Hampshire coach Brian McGan said.
