New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Softball:
Don’t look now, but the Lakes Region League of New Hampshire, a member of the prestigious New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) League is attracting and producing strong softball talent from their host state and around the country.
NEPSAC was established in 1942 as an organization of athletic directors from accredited New England independent schools. While the Association does not function as a regulatory or oversight body (like the NCAA or state public high school associations), NEPSAC does sanction New England championship events in many sports and provides guidance in a variety of issues involving interscholastic athletics.

Last year, Lakes Region saw players move on to a number of college programs including Sam Wiberg of Tilton School (2019 Lakes Region League Champions) who is now a Freshman at D1 University of Tampa. Just a few years ago Proctor Academy’s Hannah French (2018 Lakes Region League Champions) also went on to play D1 softball at Central Connecticut State University.
This year a number of players are under college coaches’ watchful eye, they include but aren’t limited to:
Kimball Union Academy - Power Hitting ‘24 Alyssa “Lulu” Leppard & Catcher Misora Hashiramoto ‘23
