3 sisters provide pop at the plate, creating history during high school softball game

Three sisters at Peabody Veterans Memorial High School (Mass.) made history earlier this month when they became the first trio of sisters to hit home runs in the same game, according to an account by Sabrina Silva at WHDH Boston.

Abby, Isabel and Lizzy Bettencourt pulled it off together in a game against rival Bishop Fenwick (Mass.). Their coach Tawny Palmieri called it an amazing accomplishment, per WHDH.

“For a family to hit three home runs from all three sisters is a pretty amazing accomplishment… I guess it’s in their blood or something, right?”

The middle sister and team pitcher, Abby Bettencourt, said that it’s the first time they have been able to play on a team together. She also told WBZ News Radio they’re each other’s best friends.

“Our record shows that it takes a close community to win games. We come here and practice, we’re always with each other, we’re each other’s best friends.”

Peabody’s most recent game was on Wednesday, and Abby struck out 14 batters in a 10-0 win over Danvers (Mass.).
