The Westfield High School softball team won several games this season with a thunderous offensive attack. On Saturday, the Bombers won the championship title with a high-voltage battery. Westfield freshman pitcher Shea Hurley scattered five hits and two walks, while striking out five batters, and junior catcher Kenzie Raymond went 2-for-3 with a double, triple, and two RBIs as the fourth-seeded Bombers defeated No. 2 Tewksbury 3-1 in the Division 2 softball state finals Saturday at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst’s Sortino Field.

The Astronomy Club at Westfield Middle School, founded by eighth grader Katelynn Goulette, received a boost this week from the Westfield Gas & Electric and Whip City Fiber in the form of a $500 donation to purchase a telescope for the school library. The telescope, a modified telescope that is hard to break, will be available for student checkout from the library. WG&E General Manager Thomas Flaherty said this has been a huge year for them in working with the schools. WG&E also provided judges for the Westfield High School Science Fair and previously donated a 3D printer to the Westfield Middle School.

During the week of June 6, elementary schools in Westfield participated in Career Week, when parents and community volunteers visited classrooms to talk to the students about the work they do, and the different careers that could be available to them. On the morning of June 8 at Franklin Avenue Elementary School, students heard from a nurse, Superintendent Stefan Czaporowski, and Senator John Velis. Retired nurse Betty Esposito, who also mentors a kindergarten student in the school, spoke to the kindergarten classes about how to become a nurse. Esposito started by saying she wanted to see their smiles. She described herself as a grandmother of four, the youngest of whom is five years old. “We’re going to talk about what I did for 50 years,” she said, putting on a nurse’s cap that she received when she graduated, and showing them her stethoscope. She said both men and women become nurses, and asked the students if any of them have family members who are nurses. Half a dozen children raised their hands, and talked about their mothers, aunts and grandparents who are nurses. Esposito said as a nurse she worked both in a hospital and also as a visiting nurse. “I really enjoyed that,” she said. “I got to meet families, the dog in the house and the cat in the house.” She then read the book, “My Mommy is a Nurse,” that was written by four nurses. Afterwards, she donated the book to the classroom.

No. 13 Westfield rallies for walk-off win over No. 20 Nauset in Division 2 baseball Round of 32 state tournament game, 5-4 Late in Monday’s Division 2 baseball Round of 32 state tournament game, it looked as if Nauset starting pitcher Max Dio was about to slam the door shut on Westfield High School in more ways than one. Dio launched a grand slam over the left field fence at Bullens Field in the fourth inning and then attempted to finish what he started on the mound ... until Westfield mounted a comeback. The 13th seeded Bombers rallied for three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to complete a 5-4 walkoff win over No. 20 Nauset. Westfield would not come up empty-handed again, staging its pulse-pounding finish. The Bombers advanced to the “Sweet 16″ and will now travel to No. 4 North Attleboro for the next round. https://www.masslive.com/westfieldnews/2022/06/no-13-westfield-rallies-for-walk-off-win-over-no-20-nauset-in-division-2-baseball-round-of-32-state-tournament-game-5-4.html
