She is pictured with Harrelson School principal Maria Cox and Lady Patriots’ softball coach Paul Putman. DeMorato is an eighth-grader at Harrelson who is described in the awards announcement as a leader by example both as a player and in the school’s hallways. She plays catcher in softball and led the Lady Patriots in batting average, runs batted in, on-base percentage and fielding percentage. Her season was cut short by a broken leg suffered while sliding into home plate during a game.
