Crusader Softball will return to the diamond this coming St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, with the Lady Crusaders taking on the University of the South in an action-packed double header. With a talented, young team in tow, the Lady Crusaders will play in Front Royal, Va., at Bing Crosby Stadium at 3:00 and 5:00 p.m.
The Lady Crusaders are beginning their spring season with renewed confidence, after defying all expectations last year with a 6-3 winning season. Despite an eight-year hiatus and a new team that had never played together before, the Lady Crusaders persevered daily with determination and a winning spirit, ending their inaugural season with pride and excitement for the future.
2016’s thirteen-woman squad features the return of several of last year’s breakout stars, including pitcher, and team captain, Mary Solitario, but also eight new freshman players — many of whom have prior softball experience from high-school. All of them will hit the field for the expanded fourteen-game season, with the Lady Crusaders taking on such teams as Notre Dame of Maryland University, Trinity University, the University of Valley Forge, Sweet Briar College, and Penn State Mont Alto.
