John Carroll's Ritter and Penta from Bohemia Manor are VSN's best on the softball diamond; Kovacs and Hudson share top coach honors
It's not unusual for a freshmen to have an impact on a varsity softball team.
Emma Ritter and Maddie Penta, however, aren't your typical freshmen.
New to the varsity scene with impressive club credentials, Penta and Ritter were at the center of championship seasons for Bohemia Manor and John Carroll School, respectively. The duo are the first freshmen, in any sport, to be selected Varsity Sports Network's top performers. Ritter is the Softball Player of the Year, and Penta is Pitcher of the Year.
C. Milton Wright's Russ Kovach and Sherry Hudson from John Carroll School are VSN's Co-Coaches of the Year. Hudson guided John Carroll School to the IAAM A Conference crown. Kovach capped what would be his final season at the Harford County school with a state championship.
