- Amherst softball looks to maintain
its standing as one of the strongest teams in New England, and
they will kick off the 1999 campaign ranked No. 16 in the nation.
While the team graduates Sarah Rinaldi and Jen Shea, the first
two women to play four years of varsity softball at Amherst,
the Jeffs are deep with young and experienced talent.
- Leading the hard-hitting Jeffs are
tri-captains Vicki Gonzalez '99 and Liza Feldman '00 who, along
with junior Melissa Roja, all have proven key in clutch situations.
Feldman came up big with a two-run shot in the bottom of the
10th inning against Wheaton (MA) for a 4-3 victory and a trip
to the NCAA New England Regional Championship game.
The Jeffs return
eight starters from last year's 31-8 team,
including three NCAA All-Tournament players.
- Defensively, junior tri-captain Darcy
Sweeney anchors the team with a .978 fielding average at first
base. Catcher Meghan Nelson posted a solid rookie season, playing
all 39 games, fielding .947 and hitting .295 with 18 RBI. Sophomore
third-basemen Shari Sakamoto and Lindsay Thomas, along with second-baseman
Carline Kelly, also gained significant experience to help maintain
Amherst's tradition of excellence.
