Newtown Thunder: Welcome
NEWTOWN THUNDER SOFTBALL
Formed in the fall 2014, our organization's mission it is to provide year round quality recreation and skill development in the game of softball, while bringing players closer together in the spirit of good sportsmanship and healthy competition.
ABOUT OUR TEAMS
The Newtown Thunder family is growing! For the 2017-2018 season, Newtown Thunder will be expanding its softball family again to hopefully include 4 teams, a U10, U12 and U14A & B. We are excited to be growing and providing a place for youth girls to play competive softball year round in Fairfield County.
Congratulations to Thunder 14U for second place in USA Summer Slam in Meriden CT. After finishing on Saturday 2-1, the team secured #4 seed, narrowly missing a first round bye on Sunday. The road to the championship was quite a challenge for which the Team Thunder rose to the occasion. The team beat the Xtreme Chaos 8-2 in the first game, followed with a win over previously undefeated #1 seeded Coventry Chaos 6-3, immediately followed by a see-saw championship in which the #2 seeded CT Gators Orange defeated the Thunder 8-3. This was a rematch from Saturday where Thunder had been the only team to beat the Gators in the tournament 4-2. Congratulations to Morgan Melillo, Britney Berg, Sarah Kick, Nicole Fisher, Gina Lewis, Sarah Savinelli, Katie Goyda, Kaylee Drago, Madelyn Twitchell, Jenna Reilly, Coach Megan Goyda and Coach Emily Woznick.
