A battle to return to the base path | Wallingford teen stays in the game


WALLINGFORD, Conn. — The past year has been a tumultuous one for 17-year-old Alena D’Antonio. 

An avid softball player in a Wallingford girls rec league, Alena’s first love of the game was put on hold when doctors at Yale-New Haven Hospital revealed she had a brain tumor in June of 2021. 

For the past year, Alena, a rising senior at Lyman Hall High School, has been battling back to return to the base paths. “I was pushing myself as hard as I could because Softball is one of the things I go to,” said Alena.
