Scarborough High senior pitcher/outfielder Chloe Griffin was named the winner of the Miss Maine Softball Award on Wednesday.

The announcement came a day earlier than expected because the Maine High School Softball Coaches Association canceled Thursday’s senior all-star games at Colby College, with heavy rain expected.

Griffin led the Red Storm to back-to-back Class A state championships in her final two seasons. This year, she went 14-0 with a 0.91 earned-run average, and struck out 108 batters in 92 innings. She also batted .446 with four home runs, 28 RBI and 25 runs scored.

Griffin, who will attend Division II Southern New Hampshire University, won all four playoff games for Scarborough, which finished 20-0.

She also drove in the winning run in the ninth inning of the Class A South final against Thornton Academy.

“I think just she loves to play the game and play the game the right way,” said Scarborough Coach Tom Griffin, who is her uncle. “She’s just very, very confident in her abilities and knows how to handle pressure situations, and I think that’s the one thing that separates her from a lot of kids. She wants to be in big games, wants the ball in her hands, wants to be at bat in big situations.”

The other finalists were Biddeford’s Brook Davis, Noble’s Mckenzie Aleva, Gorham’s Grace McGouldrick, Old Town’s McKenna Smith, Traip Academy’s Reilly Eddy and Anya Chase of Wells.

The coaches association also announced the winners of its two $500 scholarships. They were Old Town’s Smith and Edward Little’s Taylor Depot.
