The St. Francis Prep Lady Terriers softball team began this season with high expectations. As the season winds down, they are looking to bring home a Brooklyn/Queens title.

Danielle Cervasio has been on the team all four years, leading off the line-up and starting at shortstop.

She has led her team to four winning seasons. A mainstay for the Lady Terriers, she will continue her student-athlete career at SUNY Cortland.

“I think we have upheld a reputation as a top team and that has a lot to do with the coaching,” said Cervasio, who has a team-first mentality.

She has plenty to be excited about. The Lady Terriers have been just shy of a Brooklyn/Queens title the last four years, but that only makes them hungrier to win this season. They play in one of the most competitive leagues in New York.

“I believe that we can go very far because we have a strong defense and a very tight line-up,” Cervasio said.

“Every girl can hit and knows how to work the count and run the bases. They are all true softball players.”

The Lady Terriers have a camaraderie that has benefited them on and off the field.

“I feel like we have really come together well as a team and everything clicks with these girls,” Cervasio said. “We all play very well together and communicate very well with each other.”

The players have just a few teams in the way of their quest for a title. These include The Mary Louis Academy Hilltoppers and the Archbishop Molloy Stanners.

If the Lady Terriers make it to the championship, game one will be on Monday, May 20 at Queens College.
