Watertown Softball Team Beats Belmont for First Time in Years

The Raiders celebrated their victory on the newly renovated field at O'Connell Park.


The Watertown High School softball team took down Belmont Wednesday, ending a long losing streak to their rivals.

The Raiders won the game 13-9 during the first game at the newly renovated field at O'Connell Park - next to Hosmer School, said head coach Jim Swift.

"The girls were ecstatic, just winning in the Middlesex League is huge for us but beating our rival was immense," Swift wrote in an email.

Swift was not sure exactly how long it has been since the Raiders bested the Marauders on the soffball diamond, but said it has been several years.

Watertown's seniors led the team, Swift said.

"Rose Souliotis, Jadzia Lee, and Leah Baccari had seven hits between them, knocking in seven runs," Swift said. "And Mary Breen pitched the entire game."

The win was big for the players for whom this was their last shot to beat Belmont. 

"I really felt good for my seniors. It was their first taste of beating there rivals," Swift said.
