Athlete of the Week: Devan Masciulli, softball


Devan Masciulli, Softball

WHAT SHE DID: Drove in the game-winning run with a successful suicide squeeze in Newtown Rock 18U Elite’s 4-3, come-from-behind win over MPI Elite in the opening game of the ASA 18U National Qualifier Tournament. Rock 18U Elite went on to win the tournament with a 6-0 record, and Masciulli led the team with a .450 batting average (9-for-20) with three doubles, four RBIs and seven runs scored.

WHAT SHE SAID: “It’s really cool when you can come out to a (summer travel) team you haven’t seen in a while and take it from almost losing your first game to winning every single game after that, including the championship, and being able to qualify for nationals the second tournament of our summer season.”

OFF THE FIELD: Masciulli, who was involved with drama at Neshaminy High School, enjoys hanging out with friends and going to the beach.

COLLEGE: Will continue her softball career at Millersville University, where she will major in meteorology.

PERSON SHE WOULD MOST WANT TO MEET: Mike Trout. “I admire him for the way he plays the game of baseball. He plays the game right with hustle, intensity and respect. He is also an outfielder like myself, and he has incredible talent.”
