Mission Statement The mission of Endicott College is to instill in students an understanding of and an appreciation for professional and liberal studies. Deeply woven within this philosophy is the concept of applied learning, which has been the hallmark of Endicott. Linking classroom and off-campus work experience through required internships remains the most distinguishing feature of the College.

Endicott is an innovative and vibrant, student-centered institution that supports undergraduate and graduate students in their pursuit of knowledge. Common threads run through the fabric of the Endicott experience: increased self-confidence, stronger professional skills and technological competencies, and perhaps the most valued of all, lives open to change.

The Endicott softball team is coming off an impressive 2013 season where they finished at 17-1 in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) and 20-20 overall. The Blue and Green are entering the 2014 season ready to earn the programs 13th conference championship under the helm of Coach Mark Veilleux, who is entering his 20th season, the longest of any coach in Endicott’s athletic history. The Gulls will welcome back five seniors including the 2013 Pitcher of the Year and CoCaptain Nell O’Connor (Harwichport, Mass.) along with batting machines, Co-Captains Jesse Bilafer (Concord, Mass.) and Alex Moise (North Reading, Mass.). Last season the Blue and Green reached the conference finals before being ousted by Roger Williams and will look to this senior classes leadership and experience to bring another banner to the program for the first time in three years.

bulk of his heavy hitters and fielders. Sophomore Sam DiBella (Danvers, Mass.) and senior Kelley Michael (Ipswich, Mass.) will enter the 2014 season as leaders at the plate as they led in RBI’s in 2013 with 22 apiece. Following in their stead will be an experienced Bilafer and Moise who have seen the most at bats on this squad throughout their career while sophomore Emily Hoffman (Malden, Mass.) will look to pose a strong sophomore campaign. Coach Veilleux is pleased with his offense for the upcoming season saying “We will have a deeper 1-9 lineup this year, it will be more balanced and will hopefully play out to our advantage.” He is also expecting an aggressive offense as he states “We will certainly be the fastest we have been in a few years and I am really looking forward seeing what these girls can do on the bases, they are a very fast group.”

Coming into the season Coach Veilleux and his coaching staff are looking to win another conference title and making waves in Division III softball as he expresses “We are ready to bring another title to the program and take our game to the next level and prove ourselves on the national scale starting off with our strength of schedule and hopefully the regional tournament.”

Taking over behind the plate will sit in the hands on sophomore Sam DiBella, who posted an impressive rookie campaign at third base as she earned a spot on the All-CCC First Team while leading the team in homeruns last season with seven, backing her up will be senior Alli Noyes who saw action in 11 games in 2013 and Hoffman who played in 18 games during her rookie season.

Despite losing four key starters for the Blue and Green, Coach Veilleux will bring back a

The senior went 10-3 while holding an impressive 2.07 ERA capping it off with pitching eight complete games, and striking out 60. Following behind O’Connor for time will be a battle between junior Meg Donegan (Atkinson, N.H.), sophomores Courtney Blake (East Islip, N.Y.), Katherine Clark (Taunton, Mass.) and rookie Leigh Wyman (South Freeport, Maine).

(Hauppauge, N.Y.) who will be vying for time at second base. On third base junior Nicolette Delvecchio (Stoneham, Mass.) and freshman’s Rachel Couto (Chelmsford, Mass.) and Hannah Graney (Acton, Mass.) will all compete for playing time. Michael, will move from shortstop to first base while having two freshmen, Lexi Pederson (Chandler, Ariz.) and Kate Shields (Seekonk, Mass.) backing the veteran up. The outfield lost two starters to graduation last year and will be looking to veteran outfielder Moise to take the reins. With her will be junior Jess Linden (Stratford, Conn.), sophomore Jamie Corda (Higganum, Conn.) and freshman Ilyza Holman (Ashland, Mass.).

We will need our captains and upperclassman to really step up and get a strong performance out of the freshman. If we do that we are going to be solid.” On the infield Bilafer will be taking on the role of shortstop this season after spending three seasons at second which will leave a battle between newcomers Chrissy Gikas (Danvers, Mass.) and Julia McNeill

Coach Veilleux states “We play a strong strength of schedule for a reason, if we want to be the best and win conferences championships we have to compete with the best.” The Blue and Green will ship down to Clermont, Fla. for the Dot Richardson Spring Games where they will kick off their season on March, 16th when they play Bowdoin at 9:00 a.m. followed by Bethany (W.V.) at 11:00 a.m. When they return they will travel for a Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) doubleheader against Salve Regina on March, 28th then return home on the March, 29th for their home opener to host CCC opponent Wentworth for a 12/2 p.m. start. Each home game on the 2014 schedule will be made available online for those who cannot attend via live statistics and a live webcast. Check the schedule page for links to those offerings.

2014 schedule

The search for academic and athletic well-roundedness during the recruiting process is extended to the diamond once fall ball practice begins as Veilleux puts a high emphasis on fundamentals with his team every year. “We teach our players how to bunt in pressure situations, how to play small ball on both the offensive and defensive side, how to hit and run, how to bunt and run, how to suicide squeeze, and many other things they may not have done at their high school programs. They need to be prepared to run at any given time and in any situation.” With Veilleux’ aggressive style of play, Endicott softball student-athletes are subject to an intense strength and conditioning program run through the department’s on-staff personnel and assistant coach Mark Kulakowski. Veilleux attests that his players over the last few years are in better shape due to these workouts than any previous season. The softball program’s success over the years, Veilleux says, would not be what it is were it not for the dedication of his two assistant coaches, Kulakowski and Laura Carlson, who have spent nearly a combined 20 years working with the head coach. “They know the game and they know how to coach. It is great to have assistant coaches who speak their minds. I lean on them quite a bit to get their advice throughout the course of an individual game and a season. With the three of us working together, a roster full of talented players, and the support of a tremendous institution, we know that our program is destined for success.”

This has been the history of the Endicott softball team under head coach Mark Veilleux who is entering his 20th season at the helm of arguably one of the department’s most successful programs. “Every year I am excited to get going,” says Veilleux. “Endicott has so much to offer. It is a great academic school with great athletic facilities. The student-athletes we’ve had over the years are exceptional, not just in terms of athletic ability but they are great to work with.” Veilleux’ well-rounded players have accumulated numerous awards and accolades ranging from Player, Pitcher, and Rookie of the Year athletic honors to several players who have been recognized for their hard work in the classroom with Academic All-America status.
