Town targets invasives at Crescent Lake By Farrah Duffany Special to the Citizen

Ferrucci & Walicki LLC, a Middlefield forestry firm, has been chosen by the Open Space and Land Acquisition Committee to carry out a forestry management plan at Crescent Lake. For the past two years the town

has been preparing to deal with invasive plants and species in some of the 226 acres at Crescent Lake. The emerald ash borer, a green beetle originally from Asia, has left many ash trees dead or damaged. Two foresters gave presentations to the committee. One was by Eric Hansen, a managing partner of Ferrucci & Walicki. The

other was by Jeremy Clark, an independent forester. At its April 24 meeting, the committee selected Ferrucci & Walicki. Stephanie Urillo, chairwoman of the open space committee, said she was impressed with Ferrucci & Walicki’s resume and referSee Invasives / Page 5

HomeFront volunteers gather to repair house By Eric Vo

Special to The Citizen

As Chris Cipriano stood outside his home on May 3, he watched dozens of volunteers work on his house. Some volunteers were painting the sides of the house, while others were putting their carpentry skills to use to fix the paneling and wood around the home. “It’s a miracle,” Cipriano said among the sounds of hammers hitting against wood and the loud buzzing of an electric saw. Cipriano and his wife, Soncerae, had their home chosen by HomeFront to have needed repairs completed by volunteers. The Ciprianos’ Southington home was one of 75 projects that were being worked on around the state Saturday. HomeFront is a “community-based, volunteer-driven home repair program that provides free See HomeFront / Page 20

Route 6 is the longest continuous highway in America, and Connecticut native and retired journalist Joe Hurley has walked every mile of it. Hurley documented his odyssey in the book “Ten Million Steps On Route 6,” and will be featured soon at the Southington library. “It was a really enlightening experience,” Hurley said. Route 6 passes through the heart of central Connecticut as it stretches from Provincetown, Mass. to Long Beach, Calif. “In 2005 a group of Route 6 enthusiasts See Warrior / Page 4

More than 30 people attended the event that started at 6:30 p.m. Next to the Town Green pavilion was a table set up with markers and sheets of paper that had the word “hope” on them.

The event was held to promote the event coming up at the end of the month and to raise cancer awareness.

That was very touching.” One of the other surprising things about the journey was that “there really is a difference in folks, especially in the Midwest,” Hurley said. Everyone waves at one another, and waving when you see someone becomes something automatic, because you know they are going to wave back, Hurley said.

ences. The firm has worked for the Southington Water Department. “They have 30 years of experience in forestry management and their clients include New Britain and Southington water departments,” Urillo said. “The water department does own a lot of acreage in town. (Ferrucci & Walicki) had a favorable recommendation from them.” According to Ferrucci & Walicki’s website, the firm was founded in 1982 by Mike Ferrucci and Tom Walicki, graduates of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. The firm manages forests in Connecticut and Massachusetts. In July 2013, Dan Peracchio and Hansen became the managing partners. Before Ferrucci & Walicki was hired, Tom Worthley, a professor from the University of Connecticut, helped the town draft a forestry management plan focusing on invasive plants and species at Crescent Lake.

Trees damaged by invasive plants stand adjacent to Crescent Lake in Southington on Friday, May, 2.

Hansen proposed an invasive management plan targeting 30 acres on the south side of the lake before the timber harvest. After the area is treated, a selective harvest would occur and profits would go toward the cost of the project. Bonnie Sica, a member of the open space committee, said the plan is to break even after selling lumber from the harvest. In October, Southington was accepted as part of the Connecticut Grown program that promotes state agriculture. With the membership, the “CT-Grown” seal will appear on lumber from Crescent Lake and can be sold. “We know there’s going to be hundreds of people (at Crescent Lake) every week and we want to make sure it’s a quality company and good safety,” Sica said. The next step is to set a project timeline and accept bids to harvest the wood. “Crescent Lake is beautiful and we want to keep it healthy,” Sica said. “That’s been our goal and its exciting that its coming to fruition.”

The Knights of Columbus 4th Degree Isabella Assembly No. 122 of Southington.

In recognition of many years of active and faithful service to the community, four Catholic citizens of Southington will be honored Saturday evening, May 17, by the Knights of Columbus. Dennis J. Kelly, Faithful Navigator of the Southington 4th degree Isabella Assembly No. 122, stated that the roots of this tribute are in the guiding principle of the fourth degree of the Knights: Patriotism. The four cornerstone principles of the work of members of the Knights of Columbus are: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. The many

good works of the Knights, often carried out quietly, derive from these ideals, serving to fulfill the commitment of the Knights of Columbus to their Catholic Christian beliefs to love God and one another. Leaders in charity, the Knights take on scores of projects each year to meet the needs of the community, helping to feed the hungry, clothe the poor, help the homeless, care for the disabled, the challenged, the lonely, or a neighbor in need of a hand. “The selection process for our Catholic Citizens of 2014 included the invitation of our

during the Second World War. For her, life under the Nazi occupation was something she and her family had to deal with everyday. And then, later, the Soviets pushed in on the eastern side and that posed its own hardships. My mother’s memories are similar to what many civilians had to endure during that terrible time. I had heard her stories often while growing up, but lately, I’ve been writing them down to preserve them and share them with my family and friends.

My mother was born in Adams, Mass. to parents who were immigrants from Poland. She was the fourth of seven children. When she was one and a half years old, her father, my grandfather, got word from his mother that his older brother had died. That meant that he had to pack up the family and go back to Poland to take care of the farm in the village of Frysztak. And so, while my mother was born in America, she is culturally Polish; she was born an American citizen but she was raised and edu-

If you spend a significant portion of your day sitting down, you are likely to be prone to weight gain for reasons that you could scarcely imagine. According to a microbiologist from the University of Missouri, who does not own an office chair, “standing around and puttering recruit(s) specialized muscles designed for postural support that never tire.” In addition, these muscles are rich in enzymes, one of which (lipoprotein lipase) removes fat and cholesterol from the blood and turns the fat into energy. In addition, the enzyme converts cholesterol from the bad kind (LDL) to the good kind (HDL). However, when a person sits and muscles are relaxed, activity of this enzyme drops 90%-95%, leaving fat in the bloodstream. Chiropractic can be of enormous benefit in treating and preventing sports-related injuries and improving athletic performance. Call our clinic at (860) 621-2225 for an appointment.

cated in Poland. So were her brothers and sisters. Life on the farm was quiet, but that all changed in 1939 when the second World War broke out with an invasion of Poland. My mother was 15-years-old at the time. It was practically impossible to be anywhere in Poland and not be affected by the fighting. My mother’s village was often caught in the crossfire. Rev. John One day Gwozdz her father, Clergy Corner my grandfather, noticed that a hay wagon on the farm was missing and so he went to look for it. Nazi soldiers suspected him of being a spy and they took him in for interrogation. For three weeks no one knew where he was until he was released. At another time, young men from the village were rounded up against their will and they were taken to a labor camp. Mom’s oldest brother, my uncle Julian, was forced to work as part of a road construction crew in Bavaria. His family didn’t know if he was dead or alive for three years until he came home. My mother’s village had a large Jewish population. She had many Jewish classmates before the war, but after the war only one was left. She told me of a day when, as she walked to the post office, she saw soldiers execute a Jewish man across the street. On her way back home, she saw two more Jewish men being killed; one was the town baker. One day, Nazi soldiers on the way to the eastern front stole livestock on the farm and set fire to what my mom called the “old house.” Rifles were pointed at her and her family to prevent them from putting out the blaze. Later, when the soldiers left, they scurried to put out the fire so it wouldn’t spread to the “new house” next door. See Gwozdz / Page 9

The Southington Citizen |

Friday, May 9, 2014

Gwozdz When Soviet soldiers advanced west, they occupied the “new house” for a time, while my mom and her family took refuge in a root cellar. Her mother, my grandmother, caught pneumonia from the damp conditions and never recovered. After the war, there was little left for them in Poland and so, over the course of several years, they went back to America. As American citizens, my mother and her siblings had easy entry, but my grandfather’s return was not so smooth. It took the efforts of a senator and congressman from Massachusetts to cut through the red tape. About a year after she arrived, my mom met my father and she settled into a quiet life and raised three children, including me. She was determined to learn English. Even today, when

she’s reading a newspaper or book, there’s always an English- Polish dictionary at her side. For a long time I wasn’t sure if she wanted to go back to Poland. Finally, in 1994 I asked her and when she agreed I went with her. I took five hours of video. Now, of course, my mother’s life wasn’t all gloom and doom. She, along with my aunts and uncles made the most of life, and family gatherings were always filled with laughter. But six of my mother’s 90 years were spent during the war. They were the defining years of her life. And, of course, she wasn’t alone. Stories like hers could be told by thousands and even millions of people who lived through those same terrible times. But, for all of that, my mom doesn’t speak of those years with bitterness. What got her through was the

strong support of her family and the even stronger faith in God they all shared. It was faith in God’s incredible love that gave my mother, and people like her, hope, incredible hope in the face of incredible trials. During the hardship of the second World War, it was the faith of my mother, and people like her, that helped them to hear God’s voice of comfort and strength — strength that gave them patience and resilience. God provided for my mother every day of her 90 years. He provides for her now as she enjoys the care she receives in an assisted living facility. And it is with her kind of faith that I can hope and pray that God will continue to provide for her, and people like her, all the days of their lives.

Holocaust remembrance held at local congregation By E. Richard Fortunato Special to The Citizen

On April 27, in an illustrious program observing Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Gishrei Shalom Jewish Congregation presented an unforgettable musical production honoring those who perished in the horrors of the Holocaust during World War II. The principal program was a moving multi-media interpretation of the stories of prisoners in the camps, combining music, chorus and instrumentalists with dramatic full screen pictures of the WWII concentration

Held at First Congregational Church of Southington, the “Holocaust Cantata: Songs from the Camps,” with music by Donald McCullough, was performed by two select choirs of Cheshire High School, the VIPs and Chromatix Ensemble, under the direction of Beth Malvezzi Rosenblatt, with the superlative piano and cello instrumentation of Mayjane Peluso and Celeste Cumming, respectively.

darkness of evil and human suffering of the story was being revealed. The Holocaust Cantata is a musical work that raises high the compelling courage and hope of the innermost voices of the heart, stirring a crescendo of unanticipated emotions in the sights and sounds of the multi-media presentation. The performance was an exquisite interpretation of song stories that pierced the depths of the soul, screaming within for human understanding. Yet, the overriding sense of the great courage of an oppressed people, courage and hope prevailed, triumphing over evil with great dignity. Artistry, talent and the beauty of these young voices stirred the soul and the audience to rise explosively to a deeply appreciative standing ovation. Rabbi Becker said, “I am honored and proud to be the spiritual leader of this small but strong, 40-family congregation that watches over and now will restore this precious scroll. Join us as we remember the 6 million. Rejoice with us in celebration of life over the immeasurable horror of the Holocaust of the Jewish people.”

said. Planning and Zoning ComTown Attorney Mark Sci- mission meeting on May 27. ota will be negotiating a tract for the purchase and a public hearing is set for the


Council vice chairwoman. “We’ve got some land for the school to grow if we have to.” Councilor Dawn Miceli said she favored the purchase because it is near DePaolo and the high school. “I’m glad it’s coming to fruition,” Miceli said. “I think it’s going to have huge educational benefit.” As Faryniarz was taking care of a few horses and the barn cat April 30, he reminisced. He has been helping his father with the farm since he was young. Faryniarz is now 53. “I’m so used to being here, it’s like my home,” Faryniarz


ily decided to sell because of financial and family difficulties. Paul Faryniarz said his father has dementia and the manual labor is too much for him to keep up with. “We’re behind on bills,” Faryniarz said. A lot of the barns and other small buildings on the property are old, falling apart, or need repair. Pleasant View Stables rents stable space for people to keep horses. Currently they have two mini ponies, a mule, and five horses. Clients are from Southington, Waterbury, and Kensington. In the late 1970s, Faryniarz said they used to take care of about 28 horses. Since then, business has declined. He has been slowly selling machinery and other equipment and plans to have it all sold before the sale is finalized. Faryniarz said the farm has been in the family for generations. He remembered milking the cows as a boy when his family ran a dairy farm on the land. In 1977, the family closed the dairy farm and started renting stables to horse owners. When he was a boy, the family owned about 44 acres of land. All but the remaining 7.6 acres was sold for residential development in the 1980s and 90s. “That’s a great property that we just purchased for the town for open space,” said Cheryl Lounsbury, Town


SOUTHINGTON — Paul J. Wadman, 45, beloved son of Walter Wadman and the late Donna (Rozell) Wadman died unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 29, 2014. Born on Oct. 4, 1968, in Putnam, Paul was raised in Southington and graduated from Southington High School in 1986. Besides his father he is survived by his beloved sons, Nicholas Paul and Chase Parker Wadman, of West Virginia; two sisters, Susan and her husband, Dr. Anthony Ciardella, Joanne Comparone; two brothers, Jim and his wife, Kirsten and John and his fiancée, Judi, all of Southington. He also leaves nieces and nephews, Michael, Emily, Abigail, James, Hannah, David, Kiralyn, Hailey and Megan. Paul was a hardworking, fun loving and caring person. He was ambitious and was able to work his way up to becoming store manager first for Home Depot and then Lowes moving several times and making friends as he was promoted. He enjoyed working on his homes, riding his motorcycle, but most of all he enjoyed fishing and spending time with his two sons at the Richardson Cabin in Virginia. Paul will always be remembered by family and friends for his gregarious nature and “can do” personality. If anyone needed help, Paul was multi-talented and would be the first to lend a hand. He will be sadly missed by his family, his dear friends and by all who knew him. Services and burial are private and there are no calling hours. The DellaVecchia Funeral Home, 211 N. Main St., Southington is assisting the family. For online condolences visit www.

A good laugh for Mother’s Day Editor’s note: While Mother’s Day is filled with sentiment and warm-fuzzy thoughts — as well it should be — there’s another side of motherhood to explore. There are lots of moms who appreciate how much a sense of humor can help when it comes to the world’s toughest job. We’ve gathered a few famous quotes on the topic from a range of observers. Share a laugh with your mother this Mother’s Day and see which of these funny quotes rings true for her experience.

“I want my children to have all the things I couldn’t afford. Then I want to move in with them.” — Phyllis Diller “The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for 30 years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.” — Calvin Trillin “A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” — Tenneva Jordan “My mother’s menu consisted of

two choices: Take it or leave it.” — Buddy Hackett “Any mother could perform the jobs of several air-traffic controllers with ease.” — Lisa Alther “My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.” — Mark Twain “If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?” — Milton Berle “When your mother asks, ‘Do you want a piece of advice?’ it is a mere formality. It doesn’t matter if you an-

swer yes or no. You’re going to get it anyway.” — Erma Bombeck (And a few last thoughts from that prolific writer “author unknown.”) “Working mothers are guinea pigs in a scientific experiment to show that sleep is not necessary to human life.” — Unknown “I’d like to be the ideal mother, but I’m too busy raising my kids.” — Unknown “To the world you might just be one person, but to one person you might be the world.” — Unknown

Sterling situation stresses journalistic downside The Donald Sterling outrage that has spread like a prairie wildfire across the realm of sports has another side to which the impetuous pay little heed. Before anybody even slightly misconstrues what I’m about to say, I was mortified by the comments that apparKen ently express Lipshez Sterling’s From the Lip true feelings. How dare he evaluate another human being based on skin color? How ignorant could he be to belittle the very people who are the heartbeat of his business’ existence? What he said was despicable, and the eloquent message that new commissioner Adam Silver delivered was right on target. I feel for Doc Rivers, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and the rest of the Los Angeles Clippers, who presently are competing on the NBA’s biggest stage with a knot in the pit of their stomachs. I feel for the team’s fans, wondering whether they should boycott

the games as a response to Sterling’s hypocrisy or root for a gallant group with a legitimate chance to win the NBA championship. Is there truly a person on the face of the planet who feels any remorse for Sterling? If there is, he or she better express themselves carefully, perhaps in the middle of a desert or a rocket ship to Mars, which brings me to the point made by Hall-of-Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar among others. Something is truly amiss when people in the comfort of their own homes can have their innermost thoughts recorded clandestinely and broadcast across the face of the Earth. From what I’ve read, it sounds pretty obvious this V. Stiviano set Sterling up like a bowling pin. Evidence seems to suggest that she engaged in embezzlement and subsequently blackmail. It’s said that Sterling is, or was, an astute, calculating businessman, but the temptation of a beautiful woman and the egotism that comes with having her on his arm in public reinforces his image as a doddering 80-year-old buffoon. Jabbar forcefully noted in a column

Something is truly amiss when people in the comfort of their own homes can have their innermost thoughts recorded clandestinely and broadcast across the face of the Earth. The garbage that gets passed off by amateurs in the social media can never replace honest journalism, for if it is accepted by the mainstream as such, it will shake the very foundation and principles upon which our great nation was founded. for, “She was like a sexy nanny playing ‘pin the fried chicken on the Sambo.’ She blindfolded him and spun him around until he was just blathering all sorts of incoherent racist sound bites that had the news media peeing themselves with glee.” Our news sources are tripping over themselves, procuring quotes from the basketball cognoscenti all the way to the White House, on how contemptible Sterling’s comments were. I feel such coverage is an insult to the intelligent reader. We know that most everybody is mortified by Sterling’s blather. The best

stories I’ve read clued me in about who and what V. Stiviano appears to be and the messages Sterling sent out long ago that established him as being racially insensitive. What journalism has become makes me sick. I refuse to mention the two sleaze-driven websites that thrust this “news” into the public eye, and speak to the contradictory nature of our contemporary culture. People from liberal think tanks like the ACLU were up in arms when it was suggested that surveillance cameras be used on public streets to help law enforcement identify potential

troublemakers. But recording somebody without their knowledge and using it to expose their frailties is fine in satiating our society’s clamoring for celebrity dirt. Here’s what I choose to take from the episode. Sterling, after publicly apologizing to Magic Johnson, Doc Rivers, the Clippers and their fans, should be forced to sell the team. A portion of the proceeds should be earmarked for organizations that sincerely promote diversity without prejudice. As Silver said, the NBA is in the midst of one of the most exciting postseasons in its glorious history and its integrity must be upheld. It has long been my belief that NBA players are the finest athletes in the world, and the league has been very progressive in bringing together people of all races, colors and creeds. The garbage that gets passed off by amateurs in the social media can never replace honest journalism, for if it is accepted by the mainstream as such, it will shake the very foundation and principles upon which our great nation was founded.

Young inventors To the Editor: What an incredible experience we had May 3 at the 2014 Connecticut Invention Convention. I want to thank those involved for providing this opportunity for my child. To be fortunate enough to attend this event at the Gampel Pavilion at the University of Connecticut, as one of the 770 students from across Connecticut who were selected to participate (from among 1,100 students statewide who applied) was humbling enough. You can imagine the feelings my 10-year-old from Plantsville Elementary School’s fourth grade felt when she was selected as an award winner as one of only 270 inventors to be a “Recognized Inventor”. Her shock was visible from where parents sat across the pavilion floor from the designated inventors’ seating. Then, to be selected as an award recipient again as one of six inventors recognized for the ESPN Sports Awards for Sports-related inventions — it was surreal. These two recognitions will continue to have immeasurable and invaluable impact on Amanda’s personal level of confidence as well as promote learning and the value of educational pursuits through inspiring her to learn, create, and participate.

repairs to low-income homeowners,” according to the organization’s website. The organization has been around for 27 years and relies on volunteer groups, according to Executive Director Sean O’Brien. “The volunteers have fixed over 2,700 homes in our history. It’s a great project,” O’Brien said. “We’re just so proud of these volunteers who have stepped up to help families in need. These are challenging times for older adults living on social security and for low-income families.” The Cipriano’s home is located on a former Christian summer campground in Southington. Their home, which they’ve been living in for nearly a decade, was built in 1927, Chris Cipriano said.

The Cipriano’s home was one of 75 homes chosen by HomeFront to be repaired by volunteers. As time went on, the house aged and the wood began to rot. Repairs were necessary to the exterior and especially the bathroom, where the floor began caving in, Chris Cipriano said. “When we first moved in,

I did some inside renovation with a lot of help from a bunch of friends,” he said. “I know how to paint, but carpentry? Forget it.” Realizing how much the home needed to be repaired, but not able to afford to do

to do it, it could open up another window of problems,” he said. Three years later, the Ciprianos received a call from HomeFront. “Thank you Lord,” Chris Cipriano said when he got the call. “Every year, I was praying. I said, ‘Lord, I don’t know how to do this here.” Different churches in Southington came together Saturday morning to work together to help a family in need. Tables were set up with food, coffee and snacks for the volunteers. They gathered at 9 a.m. and planned to work through the entire day. On one side of the home were students and teachers from Southington High School painting the walls. On the other side of the house were volunteers from various churches in the area replacing the panels on the walls and fixing one of the screen doors. Five other individuals worked on the deck to make repairs to the bathroom and the floor. The materials for the repair work was donated by HomeFront, according to Kaye Davis, executive director of United Way of Southington. “It’s amazing,” Davis said of the number of volunteers. “The generosity of the community is unbelievable.” Pastor James Debner of Zion Lutheran Church said it was “wonderful” seeing the number of volunteers Saturday. “Here you have a bunch of congregations coming together and volunteering their See HomeFront / Page 21

time,” Debner said. “They’re putting their faith to action.” Jeff Fowler, of Grace United Methodist Church, was helping and guiding a volunteer as he used the electric saw to cut a piece of wood. “It’s great,” Fowler said as he watched the work. “The problem with churches and other organizations is that they sometimes stay within their four walls. They need to be more out into the community where there’s a need.” As a “faith-based family,” Soncerae Cipriano said she and her husband have been on the other end of the situa-

tion — helping other families in need. Getting the call from HomeFront and seeing the volunteers helping her family “enabled us to be good receivers,” she said. “As a community, we can’t wait to be a part of next year’s project and helping them,” Soncerae Cipriano said. The goal for the volunteers is to finish the repairs by the end of Saturday. Soncerae Cipriano said a painter will come back to finish the paint job and someone else would come and replace their roof. “It’s awesome,” Chris Cipriano said as he watched over the volunteers. “To me, it’s a miracle. They’re fixing things that I didn’t honestly think would be fixed.”

The town has sold the former school on Beecher Street to a local developer who plans to transform it into residential apartments or offices. The Town Council unanimously approved the sale last week to Mat Florian, president of Florian Properties on Center Street, for $200,000. The former school building later housed the Board of Education offices. Town Manager Garry Brumback said the council chose between Florian’s proposal and one from Oak Land

Developers LLC of Plainville for $105,000. The second proposal would potentially involve knocking down the 102-year-old building and creating residential units. “That was the one they did not agree with,” Brumback said. The council voted 8-0 in favor of the proposal from Florian. Councilor John Barry was absent from the meeting. “We put that property out to bid three or four times now, so it looks like we definitely got the best deal that we can for the town and also something that makes the neighbors happy about

what’s going to go in their neighborhood,” said council Vice Chairwoman Cheryl Lounsbury. Florian, a Republican member of the local Parking Authority, owns numerous properties in town and was a key figure during Downtown Renaissance efforts. Last summer, Republican councilors supported selling the Beecher Street building for $220,000 to a developer of senior housing while the Democrats were opposed, saying the building is worth more money. The appraised value is $802,490 and Democrats had said they hoped to go out to bid again to get a better price. Republicans had disagreed and said that the property has a lot of problems including asbestos and an underground oil tank that may need to be removed. There was also some tension between Democratic Councilor Barry and Louis Martocchio, a former Republican councilor, on the issue. Martocchio was the agent for Beecher St. LLC, a holding company for the developer that proposed the senior housing. Martocchio said he recused himself from council deliberations once he found out some long time clients of his were interested in the property. Barry said in September that the facts of Martocchio’s involvement weren’t being represented clearly, which Town Attorney Mark Sciota denied. About 30 to 38 units of senior housing were being proposed with at least 30 percent of them classified as affordable under the former plan. Residents on Beecher Street weren’t happy with that plan, expressing concern about increased traffic, the number of units proposed, and that it would change the character of the neighborhood. Opponents presented a petition with more than 100 sigSee Beecher / Page 29

Sports Lacrosse helps Leitao with life’s challenges Former Southington star wraps up college career with record-setting surge By Ken Lipshez

Special to The Citizen

WEST HARTFORD — Erika Leitao was just into her freshman year at the University of Hartford when she astutely recognized that the environment was not right for her. She truly loved lacrosse. She gained so much enjoyment playing in Southington as a child and eventually at Southington High, but the state of the sport at Hartford was among some of the conditions that convinced her she did not belong there. She didn’t have to venture very far to find the answer that will resonate over her lifetime. In fact, she could have walked there in a half-hour. Leitao transferred to the University of St. Joseph, geographically less than three miles away, but much further removed in other ways. Playing for the Division III Blue Jays, Leitao became the program’s second-leading career scorer, fueled by adept stick-handling, determination and the comforting thought she

Knights Notes Baseball Southington 15, Simsbury 0: The Blue Knights blew open a 2-0 game at Simsbury’s Memorial Field with six runs in the fifth and seven in the seventh.

Garrett Gugliotti and Joe Daigle collected two hits apiece. Southington improved to 6-2 overall and 3-1 in the CCC West. Softball Southington 13, Simsbury 0:

line drive over her head. She added to the attack with a hit, a run scored and three stolen bases. Girls tennis Southington 4, Conard 3: The host Blue Knights swept singles in their CCC West opener to keep their undefeated record intact.

Southington is 6-0 overall. Individually, Barmore, Race and Wormer are also 6-0. Boys tennis Southington 4, Conard 3: Southington was undefeated. Conard was undefeated. Something had to give when the two boys tennis teams opened the CCC West campaign in West Hartford. It turns out nothing did until the final fray of the day, at No. 3 singles. With all the other matches in the books and the team score knotted at 3, Southington ‘s Grant Ogrin rallied for a 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 decision that gave the Blue Knights a 4-3 victory. Southington is now 5-0 overall, the Chieftains 7-1. The singles lineup came through for the Blue Knights.

Kunal Kataria’s 6-2, 6-3 victory at No. 1 sparked a sweep. Nate Mullins won 6-2, 6-1 at No. 2. Luke Pfanzelt dominated 6-0, 6-1 at No. 4. Boys volleyball Southington 3, Enfield 0: Two nights after suffering its first loss of the season, Southington bounced back with a vengeance, sweeping Enfield in a CCC interdivisional match that was never close. Game scores were 25-11, 2512, 25-8. The Blue Knights did most of their damage in the middle and from the service line. Middle blocker Adam Brush had a team-high 11 kills and fellow middle Nate Keen had five. Outside hitter David Shaughnessy had five kills and four of Southington’s 14


aces. Mark Horanzy led the service onslaught with five aces. S e tte r Pe te r M a s te rs recorded 24 assists as Southington improved to 7-1. Girls lacrosse Simsbury 15, Southington 9: The Trojans (6-0) remained unbeaten with the CCC win over the 6-2 Blue Knights in Simsbury. Carolynn Keal scored five goals for Southington while, at the other end, Allie Abacherli made 20 saves. Faith Ritchie, Alexa Luponio, Helen Dinnan and Morgan Raymond added single goals. Sutton Wunderle led Simsbury with four goals. Meghan Corcoran and Natalie Leach had three apiece. Boys lacrosse Xavier 8, Southington 7: The Blue Knights fell to 7-3

with the non-conference loss at home. Kevin Cop’s four goals led Southington. Jared DeFeo had a pair and Alex Jamele added one. Colin O’Donnell scored three goals for Xavier (6-2).

Leitano great smile and a giggle that will never leave my brain,” said Herrera, who serves on the strategic planning committee for U.S. Lacrosse, the sport’s governing body. “She’s helped take a program that is really quite young, bought into what I do and it has begun to turn around. A lot of what she’s done as a leader allowed us to get our first entry into the [Great Northeast Athletic Conference] tournament and win our first con-

ference game. “We’ve doubled our productivity while she was here and she’s been a big part.” Leitao made the leap from a winning program at Southington to a budding one at USJ and she recognizes that the transition had life lessons attached. She discovered as a sophomore that the knowledge of the game and the ability to handle a stick were more of a concern at USJ than they were at SHS.

a lot and the spirit gets down, you’ve got to keep everybody motivated, even when we’re down by 10 goals, 20 in some games. The sport in college taught me a lot about myself, that I could be a leader.” She found that winning wasn’t everything. “It’s great to win. That’s the ultimate goal, but I feel I’ve gotten so much more out of it,” said Leitao, who will study pharmacy at USJ for the next three years. “I got so much joy out of playing the game and going to practice. I’d forget about schoolwork and other things that might be bothering me when I pick up the stick.” She also finds great solace in family, an appreciation magnified by the death of her father when she was 7. “I rely on my mom and sister for a lot, and they have both always been there for me when I needed them the most,” she said. “I thank them for raising me and keeping me in sports. I know if my dad were still alive, he would be so proud of the player I am and the woman I’ve become.” Herrera noted the role her father continues to play in her life ramped up her commitment to academics and athletics at USJ. “She looked to her dad before every game. I could see her promising him, ‘This is for you and I will do well.’ I saw how she broke down when she scored her 100th goal. It was extremely emotional. The kids were so proud of her,” he said. She leaves her playing career with some aspirations of becoming a coach, but the brunt of her passion will shift toward pharmacy and how she can enhance its role to help mankind. She would like to incorporate more natural methods in the prevention and treatment of cancer. “There’s more to pharmacy than a lot of people know,” she said, as her thoughts drifted to what she can accomplish in the years ahead. And she’ll never lose sight of the part that USJ lacrosse has played in her development. “I enjoy being part of a team.”
