BETHEL — After a full season’s hiatus in 2020 due to Covid-19, the Telstar Varsity Rebels softball team has jumped out to a 2-1 record in the early 2021 season.

Following a road scrimmage to Yarmouth just prior to the start of the season, the Rebels defeated a highly respected Buckfield team at home by a score of 9-7.  Junior Natasha Mason pitched well for the Rebels, striking out six. Mason also had two hits, with one a grand slam in the fourth inning. Sarah Chase, Makenzie Elliott, Katie Evans and Leah Kimball also had hits for the victors.

The Rebels went on the road, losing to Monmouth Academy by a score of 11-6. While the Rebels scored first, going up 2-0, a sloppy third inning allowed Monmouth to pull ahead with seven runs. Telstar battled back with Natasha Mason, Makenzie Elliott , Aiyana Chartier and Karen Marshall contributing hits in the losing effort.

Telstar returned to their home turf, vanquishing Mount Abram by a final score of 15-2. Natasha Mason walked four times and scored four runs. Brooklyn Kimball, Makenzie Elliott, Payton Berry, Sarah Chase, Morgan Zetts, and Jordan Berry all had hits for Telstar.
