The Hartford Youth Commission’s 8u softball team was recognized on Aug. 1 by New York State Assemblyman Matt Simpson for its undefeated 10-0 season and first-place Southern Adirondack League Playoff finish.

“This group of girls has so much to be proud of. Their effort and attitudes are beyond impressive for 8u,” co-coach Angie Abbott said.

Team members included Hope Abbott, Jaelyn Bentley, Catherine Cary, Peyton Desourdy, Kendall Gibson, Misty Gray, Charlotte Hayes, Sophia LaCross, Sierra Lane, Aubree Sargent, Sloan Truehart and Haley Williams.

Abbott and Stephen Abbott served as the co-coaches for the team with help from assistants Chelsea Truehart, Sarina Gibson, Amy Jones and Amy Lane.

Also in attendance for the celebration at Hartford Central School were Hartford supervisor Dana Haff, the Hartford Youth Commission board members and family and friends of the team.
