Not even Gabrielle Kelliher herself could forecast the record-breaking season she would have on the softball field this past season.The East Brunswick junior center fielder broke five school single-season offensive records, highlighted by a 14-home run season in her record-breaking campaign.“I wasn’t expecting to break these records,” said Kelliher, the Home News Tribune Softball Player of the Year. “Some of these records I didn’t even know what the final mark was until the last game, so I was just trying to stay consistent.”In addition to breaking East Brunswick’s single-season home run total with 14 dingers, Kelliher set new school marks in hits 43, RBI 42, batting average .478, and slugging percentage 1.056 while she also scored 37 runs and hit eight doubles, one triple, and drew 15 walks.
