Carifi recorded her 150th varsity hit against Morris Catholic High School with a single up the middle of the infield.

After the base hit, the softball was removed from the game and was presented to the coach. Carifi finished the season without one strikeout and had 11 Doubles, 5 Triples, 1 Home Run and 18 Stolen Bases. She finished this year with a .602 Batting average. Parsippany Hills won the game 6-0.

Carifi a senior, who will be playing softball for TCNJ next year had this to say when asked about her accomplishment.  “Setting the school record is an amazing feeling and I am so proud.  I couldn’t have done it without the support of my teammates. It all comes down to hard work and preparation in the off season and staying after practice in season. This gave me the opportunity to have a great senior season and reach this milestone”,

Ironically, Jaclyn’s brother (Justin who graduated in 2017) currently holds the school’s record in wrestling for most varsity wins (118).  Jaclyn has now left her own legacy behind with her own school record with a total of 151 hits.
