Hofstra & BC Softball Coaches
To Run Clinics At ‘360’ Fitness
…Players Ages 10-18 Can Get Nice Head Start On 2018 Season

By Steve Tober

FAIRFIELD- Hofstra’s Larissa Anderson and Boston College’s Ashley Obrest head an impressive list of top softball coaches coming to work with youngsters at 360 Fitness in Fairfield in the coming weeks, as they will appear on consecutive days, 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Nov. 4, and Sunday, Nov. 5, at 360’s state-of-the-art facilities located at 25 Greenbrook Road to conduct clinics for all interested girls, ages 10-18, who may want to get a nice head start on their pre-winter workouts in anticipation of the 2018 spring season.

“It’s a great opportunity for players of all ages to learn from some of the top college coaches in the country, and get a good jump start on next spring’s softball season,” said Rob Stern of 360, who is also an assistant coach at Mount St. Dominic and helps run the NJ Pride softball program. “We are thrilled to have some of the best coaches in the country coming to 360 to help all interested youngsters.”

The cost for each college clinic is $90 per player.

Hofstra’s Anderson is in her fourth season with the Pride (86-59-1) after taking over the reins for the legendary Hall of Fame coach Bill Edwards, who she worked under for 13 years.

Hofstra reached the Colonial Athletic Association’s championship game this past spring while notching its 28 th straight winning season.

Among the former outstanding Hofstra pitchers have been such noted East Coast names as Olivia Galati of St. John The Baptist HS from West Babylon, N.Y., and one of the recent grads for the Pride was former Livingston High school star Jess Peslak.

BC’s Obrest, in her seventh season with the Eagles, guided the Bay State school to a fine 31-22 season last spring, including a very respectable 14-9 mark in the Atlantic Coast Conference. It marked BC’s third 30-win campaign in the past four years.

Obrest has groomed a number of top All-ACC performers including Tatianna Cruz, who set Eagle all-time career records for home runs (47), RBIs (171) and total bases (353).

One of the current North Jersey products on the BC roster is freshman first baseman-right fielder Gianna Randazza of Johnson High School of Clark.

Another top softball coaches clinic upcoming at 360 will be on Saturday, Nov. 18, also 9 a.m. to noon, when Quinnipiac University head coach Jill Karwoski makes her visit to the Fairfield-based training facility to teach all interested players ages 10-18.
