PREVIEW

Louisville Tabbed As 2010 BIG EAST Softball Favorite PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Louisville Cardinals were named the favorite to win the BIG EAST softball championship this season in the annual Preseason Coaches’ Poll. 2009 BIG EAST Player of the Year Melissa Roth leads a group six returning players for the Cardinals who were All-BIG EAST selections ago. Four squads received first-place votes and topped 110 points in this year’s poll. Louisville garnered six first-place votes and 137 total points to earn top billing in 2010. Roth, a senior catcher, paces the offense while senior pitcher Kristen Wadwell led the BIG EAST in wins, innings pitched, strikeouts and complete games last season. Junior Chelsea Bemis joins Roth and Wadwell as returning All-BIG EAST First Team selections while senior Vanessa James, junior Colby Wherry and sophomore Kristin Austin were second team honorees. Louisville finished 2009 ranked No. 18 in the ESPN.Com/USA Softball Top 25 Poll. DePaul came in second in this year’s poll, only six points behind Louisville. The Blue Demons received four first-place votes and 131 points. Senior Becca Heteniak, the reigning BIG EAST Pitcher of the Year, anchors the Blue Demons in the circle as she led the league in ERA last season. Heteniak also got it done at the plate in 2009, finishing third in the conference in home runs, RBI and slugging percentage. DePaul ended last season No. 19 in the ESPN.com/USA Softball Top 25 Poll after winning the BIG EAST regular season title. Notre Dame, last year’s BIG EAST tournament champion, comes in third in the coaches’ poll with two first-place votes 125 total points. Senior Christine Lux and sophomore Dani Miller, both 2009 All-BIG EAST First Team selections, provide the Irish with a strong middle of the order while junior pitcher Jody Valdivia, a second team honoree, anchors the circle. Notre Dame finished 2009 ranked No. 25 in the USA Today/NFCA Division I Top 25 Poll. The final first-place vote in 2010’s coaches’ poll was awarded to USF. The Bulls entered last year’s BIG EAST Championship as the No. 5 seed and upset No. 4 Syracuse before falling to top-seeded DePaul in the semifinals. USF is led by 2009 AllBIG EAST First Teamer sophomore Janine Richardson and third team selection senior Cat Olnick. Syracuse was the only other squad to top 100 points, tallying 101. Orange sophomore Jenna Caira, the 2009 BIG EAST Rookie of the Year, is the staff’s ace and will be leaned upon heavily to offset the loss of three senior position players who were All-BIG EAST selections last year.

With 71 points, Connecticut comes in just behind the Red Storm. Junior Julianne Towers, a second team all-conference selection looks to lead the Huskies in lieu of graduated seniors Micah Truax and Rachael Crossin. Pittsburgh sits in eighth with 64 points. Reba Tutt, who played every game for the Panthers and led the team in batting, returns for her junior season. The final five BIG EAST squads are stacked closely together as they are separated by 11 points. Providence leads this group with 44 points narrowly edging Georgetown which received 42 points. The Friars feature top returners Christy Becker and Jenna Garcia, who both tallied over 20 runs last season along with senior pitcher Danielle Bertolette. The Hoyas will look to sophomore designated player Mackensey Carter who was an All-BIG EAST Third Team selection in her rookie campaign. Seton Hall and Villanova tied with 38 points in the poll. Seton Hall advanced to the BIG EAST Championship last season as the No. 8 seed, but fell to No. 1 DePaul in the quarterfinals. Villanova was 23-26 overall last season but struggled in conference play going 6-18. Rutgers rounds out the 2010 coaches’ poll with 33 points. The Scarlet Knights tied with the Wildcats for 12th in 2009 with an identical 6-18 league mark but were 23-33 overall. This season’s BIG EAST Championship returns to Louisville, Ky., for the third straight season. The three- day tournament begins on May 13 with four quarterfinal games. The semifinals on May 14 and the championship game on May 15 will be aired live on CBS College Sports.

SENIOR CHRISTINE LUX

NOTEBOOK • Notre Dame returns 13 letterwinners from a 2009 squad that finished 43-17 overall (19-4 BIG EAST) and captured the BIG EAST Championship title. • Senior all-American Christine Lux will carry a bulk of the offensive load for the Irish in 2010. Lux has hit a school-record 15 home runs in each of the last two seasons while driving in 51 runs last year, which ranks third on the program’s single-season list. • Katie Fleury, Brianna Jorgensborg, Erin Marrone, Dani Miller, Jody Valdivia and Lux are returning starters who have earned at least one all-BIG EAST citation each throughout their careers. • Valdivia was the only BIG EAST pitcher without a loss through the 2009 league slate. • The Irish have claimed four BIG EAST Tournament titles and eight trips to the NCAA Tournament under head coach Deanna Gumpf, who enters her ninth season at the helm of the program with a record of 332-153-1 (.684) for the highest winning percentage of any team.

JUNIOR KACEE COX

NOTEBOOK • In 2010, the biggest key for the Red Storm is continued improvement from the team’s junior-class core of pitchers Kat Lawrence and Linzee Sumrall, catcher Kacee Cox and outfielder Chelsea Durning. All four players ranked in the top five in the BIG EAST in their respective pitching, offensive and defensive categories. • Cox returns at catcher, where she flourished last season as a sophomore after spending her 2008 freshman campaign at third base. With Cox behind the plate for all 50 games, the St. John’s pitching staff’s ERA dropped from 3.58 in 2008 to 2.92 in 2009. • Senior Stacia Dopudja, who earned All-BIG EAST second team honors last season, will resume her starting role at first base. Her seven home runs and 19 RBI both ranked third on the team last season. • St. John’s returns two of the best pitchers in the BIG EAST in juniors Lawrence and Sumrall. The Red Storm was the only team in the conference with two pitchers ranked in the top 10 in innings pitched (Lawrence sixth, Sumrall ninth) and strikeouts (Lawrence third, Sumrall fourth).

NOTEBOOK • The Pirates finished 2009 with a 24-31-1 overall record and a 10-14 mark that secured them the eighth seed in the BIG EAST Championship. The 10 conference wins were the most by a Seton Hall team since its BIG EAST Championship-winning team in 2005. • Seton Hall returns sophomore Kristen Kaelin and junior Nalin Bennett, who each earned All-BIG EAST Second Team Honors last season. • After setting the Pirate single-season stolen base record with 27 swipes, junior Michelle Reed is just 27 shy of breaking the career mark of 65. As a team, Seton Hall was second in the BIG EAST with 75 steals in 2009. • Senior Ashley Forsyth anchors the staff, and is one strikeout shy of becoming just the eighth pitcher in school history to record 200 for her career. • The Pirates added four freshmen to the roster, three of whom are slated to earn starting spots. Pitcher Hannah Hill is a two-time Gatorade Player of the Year from Maine, while Kirby Groves will play third base and Brittany Hammer will be at shortstop.

SOPHOMORE CAITLYN DELAHABA

NOTEBOOK • The Wildcats are returning the majority of their infield with

veteran players, losing just two from last year’s squad. • Villanova’s entire pitching staff from last year, with starters

Caitlyn Delahaba and Molly Manning, will also return. • The Wildcats will have senior leadership from Jess O’Boyle, Eryn Teague and Danielle Maricle. All three are captains and all three have been consistent starters over the past few years. • Maricle is the top returnee in batting average at.296 last season. She was also the team leader in runs and stolen bases a year ago. • Delahaba and Manning look to improve on successful rookie campaigns in the BIG EAST. Manning was the team’s leader in ERA last season while Delahaba led the team in wins, appearances, games started, innings pitched and strikeouts.
