MONTVILLE, NJ - Jessica Shalongo, a senior softball player at Montville Township High School [MTHS] signed her National Letter of Intent to play softball at Delaware State next fall. She will become a Hornet.
Shalongo is a four-year varsity pitcher and has been the number one pitcher for MTHS this season.
Sporting a 1.61 earned run average, with a total of 109 Strike outs this year, the star pitcher has been integral in launching the Mustangs to a 12-6 record so far this season.
“Shalongo is a great asset to our line-up,” said MTHS Varsity Softball Coach, John Immediato.
A two-time Second-Team All-Conference athlete, Shalongo has added three home-runs this season. She was given the All County Coaches Award two years in a row, and her freshman year received Honorable Mention All-Conference.
Delaware State ended the 2014 season this past weekend with a 35-17 record. Shalongo will join the thirteen returning Hornets as they look ahead to the 2015 season.
