    Head Coach: Mitch Overbye

    Currently one of the top programs in New England, Westminster Varsity Softball has won 10 Founders League titles over the past 12 years and achieved a record of 186 wins and 12 losses during that time. Westminster teams have also captured eight Class A Western New England Championships since 2008.

    Graduates have played softball at D3 and D1 schools including Bates College, Bowdoin College, Brandeis University, Bryant University, Cornell University, Hamilton College, and Wesleyan University.

    The 2019 season will begin with Westminster's 17th consecutive trip to Disney's Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando for spring training. Each year, the team plays a number of games in Florida and has multiple practices. Upon returning to Connecticut, the Martlets play an intensive 18 game schedule including contests against Class A opponents Choate, Loomis Chaffee, Northfield Mount Herman, Taft, and Williston, as well as strong Class B teams such as Ethel Walker, Kingswood-Oxford, Suffield, and Wilbraham & Monson. The season concludes with the Western New England Class A Championship Tournament. The Westminster team plays on a beautiful field constructed in 2008.

    Head Coach Mitch Overbye and Assistant Coaches Brady Cooper and Lee Zalinger run the program. Coach Overbye has been at Westminster since 1999, and has also coached numerous town and travel teams. Prior to joining Westminster, Coach Cooper was a four-year varsity player at St. Lawrence University. Coach Zalinger has coached both softball and baseball teams at Westminster over the past decade.

    With this dedicated and enthusiastic staff, the team is well prepared each spring for a challenging and rewarding softball experience.
