East Haven’s Emilee Bishop the New Haven Register area MVP for softball

When Emilee Bishop took over pitching duties for East Haven softball in the 2021 Class L state tournament, she showed flashes of what was to come.

As the 2022 season rolled around, the entire SCC was anticipating the historic senior year encore.

“I was really excited, and I had some confidence after experiencing that pressure on the mound,” Bishop said. “I was more prepared this year and I knew what we were playing for.”

Bishop broke four individual school records for East Haven both on the mound and at the plate. She set single-season marks for home runs with nine, batting average at .603, strikeouts with 183 and wins with 20.

“She had an outstanding year,” East Haven coach Ed Crisafi said. “They don’t come any better, everything about her was team first no matter how she was doing. She kept the team upbeat all the time and nothing ever phased her.”

Bishop, the Register area MVP for softball, was the catalyst throughout the season in which East Haven broke the school record for wins (23) and captured its first SCC title.

“Winning the SCC meant everything to me,” Bishop said. “To say that we were the first team to win it is something I am going to remember forever, and it really made history. It was great to be a part of it.”

Not only was she named the SCC tournament MVP but was also named the SCC player of the year for her performances on both sides of the ball.
