Ellsworth softball ready for first season under Dottie Cameron

It’s time for fielding drills in one of the team’s first practices of the year, and the Eagles are ready to ease into it.Well, at least that’s what they think.“I’m going to hit this one pretty soft,” Cameron says.The “ping” of her aluminum bat sounds. The ball rips toward the left side of the infield and gets past Ellsworth’s infielders with ease.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“Just kidding, I guess,” she says as she laughs. “That wasn’t soft at all.”She does it over and over again. Whether they’re hit straight at the infielders or toward the gaps, the balls are flying off the bat at lightning speed. That’s how Cameron likes it.“Practice like you play,” she tells the girls. “This is what you’ll see when the games start, and we’re almost there.”Two weeks from today, the Ellsworth softball team will take the field for its first regular-season game with Cameron as its head coach. She had previously been an assistant under Rick Roberts, who stepped down from the team in November.“I would say I coach in a very different way than Rick Roberts,” Cameron said. “With Rick, he was everybody’s friend. That’s not to say I’m not, but I’m just more intense. I just bring my energy to the table, and that’s my way of coaching and getting the best out of these players.”Cameron was the top candidate to take the job from the moment Roberts decided he would no longer coach the team. He recommended her for the job soon after informing Ellsworth of his decision, and Cameron obliged.So far, Ellsworth players have noticed a few differences in the buildup to the season. For one, the team’s pitching staff is no longer at a disadvantage because they can participate in Roberts’ pitching clinics during the fall and winter months. Maine Principals’ Association rules forbid such activities.Cameron, originally from South Plainfield, N.J., at Husson University in college. After graduating from Husson in 2012, she then spent one year as an assistant there in 2013 before eventually joining Roberts’ staff in Ellsworth.“I think she’s more hands-on than coach Rick was,” catcher Callie Hammer said. “It’s definitely different going from one coach to another, but the fact that she has that passion for the game and played here is something we look up to.”After a down year two seasons ago, Ellsworth turned things around and went 12-6 in 2016. This year’s team has a lot of returning talent around the infield and at the plate, and the potential is there for the team to score a lot of runs.On the mound, the Eagles will have to make up for the loss of standout pitcher Kate Whitney, the team’s No. 1 arm all season. One pitcher on whom the Eagles will be relying on this year is Sammy Mason. Mason hasn’t played in three years, but being able to work with Roberts has helped.“It’s been a bit tough for me to get back into things because I’m used to playing tennis in the spring, but being able to work with both coaches has helped,” Mason said. “I’ve had to shake off some rust and remember some of my pitches, but now that things are getting going, I’d say it’s a lot easier.”Ellsworth’s early practices didn’t truly kick off until Monday. The team spent a few days in the classroom rather than the gym late last week to learn about Cameron’s vision for the team. She wants to emphasize conditioning. She wants her players to match her own intensity. Above all, though, she wants to get the most out of each one of them.“This is a team that has a lot of room to be great, and I think the girls are all buying in,” Cameron said. “I have a feeling this team is going to surprise some people. Our ceiling is high, and we’re hungry and ready to win.”Correction: The original version of this story said Dottie Cameron played high school softball in Ellsworth. She played at South Plainfield High School in New Jersey.last_img read more
