Softball: Cheverus freshman Addison DeRoche receives Gatorade award

Jun. 7—Cheverus freshman Addison DeRoche has been chosen as Gatorade Maine Softball Player of the Year, beating out two-time Gatorade award winner Brooke Gerry of Windham.

DeRoche, a right-hander, allowed only three runs during the regular season — all in a 3-1 loss to Windham in the regular-season finale. She entered the playoffs with an 8-1 record, a 0.12 earned-run average and 137 strikeouts in 57 innings, having given up only six hits. On Thursday, she pitched her fourth no-hitter of the season and struck out 19 in a 3-0 win over Massabesic in the Class A South quarterfinals.

DeRoche also is one of the state's top hitters, batting .533 with three home runs, 24 RBI and a 1.745 OPS during the regular season.

MISS MAINE SOFTBALL: Brooke Gerry of Windham, Sadie Armstrong of Portland, McKayla Kortes of York and Lily Rawnsley of North Yarmouth Academy are among 10 finalists for Miss Maine Softball, which will be awarded to the state's top senior.

The other finalists are Lily Noyes of Skowhegan, Taylor Takatsu of Gardiner, Mia Koots of Nokomis, Sage Evans of Old Town, Zoe Soule of Hall-Dale and Emma Potter of Penobscot Valley.
