Player to Watch: Hillary Dole ’17

Bringing experience and versatility to the field, Hillary Dole ’17 is a strong addition to Andover Softball’s infield. Dole, a new Upper, hails from Abington, Mass., and has played softball since she was six-years old. She plays shortstop and third base and stays sharp in the off-season by playing softball year-round on a club team.

Dole’s skill and knowledge of the game will be crucial additions to Andover’s already talented starting lineup.

Co-Captain Victoria Bergeron ’16 said, “Hillary is very focused and a hard worker, when she is on the field she is very poised. She never gets flustered, she is consistent, and just a very talented player. She is also very humble. She has a really strong arm and extensive knowledge of the game. She is an all-around great player and will be very critical to the infield.”

Dole is excited to join the softball team and form bonds with teammates on and off the field.

Dole said, “I received a warm welcome to a winning team that went undefeated last year. I am excited to help the team hopefully have a season like last year.”
