Coach of the Year
Franklin head coach Kate Fallon-Comeau has been named the 2019 HockomockSports.com Softball Coach of the Year after leading the Panthers to within one game of a Kelley-Rex division title and to the Div. 1 South quarterfinal.
“Franklin made an unexpected run at a league title this spring,” said HockomockSports.com Managing Editor Josh Perry. “Kate had her team ready to go right from the start of the season and the Panthers were competitive in every game. They got the most of the talent on the roster and took a big step up the standings this season despite such a difficult schedule.”

The Panthers finished with a record of 16-7, but four of those losses came against Bridgewater-Raynham and Bishop Feehan, which were the two finalists in D1 South, by a combined six runs. All seven losses were to teams that qualified for the tournament. Franklin also won a pair of playoff games, including a road win at Braintree to reach the South quarterfinal, and handed Taunton one of its two league losses. The Panthers scored the third most runs in the league (157) and allowed the second fewest (52).
Fallon-Comeau is the first Kelley-Rex coach to win this award since Taunton’s Dave Lewry won his second straight Coach of the Year award in 2015.
