Assistant Coach Reese Mariconda, who had been with us for 4 years, a former Virginia Tech star infielder, is leaving to be Assistant Coach at Georgia Tech.  GT used to be a top 50 team but had fallen off to 155 last year.

Tough time to be losing a key assistant, in the middle of recruiting season.

Scott, most immediately would be 2, for next year's seniors, Shaw (IF and power hitter) and Figueroa (OF and slapper).  Yes, scholarship or partial.  Softball gets to split scholarships up.  I think unless one goes through coaches, the player has to initiate the contact with the coach prior to the end of their Junior year.  After that, the coach can initiate contact.  One often sees the best Texas players verbally committing as Sophomores.  Makes it tough for Bridget unless she sees them in one of the 3 tournaments she goes to in the summer.  I guess it's an unwritten rule that if a player gives a verbal, nobody else tries to recruit them.

Odd coincidence in coaching announcements.  Former Ram Kayla Lombardo just announced she's going to be an assistant at Lehigh, then, within days, Reese Mariconda announces she's going to GT.  Wonder if Lombardo was considered for Mariconda's job.  Both were infielders.  Would love to steal Jen Mineau from St. Joe's as pitching coach and move Gabby Leuty over to the other assistant.

That sounds like a great idea, both could work from their strengths.  It would also be great if Jen could find a pitcher or two at her talent level Wink

Agree as to work from their strengths. 

I think incoming freshman Rauch has the potential to be at Jen's talent level with good coaching.  She throws harder and has a changeup, which Jen didn't have, but Jen had movement and pinpoint accuracy.  Unfortunately, now that she's recently  married, I think it'll be more difficult to get her to move.

Also leaving is Quense, our ace pitcher.  She graduated but had another year of eligibility and was suppose to be going to Gabelli grad school at Lincoln Ctr but rumor has it that she'll play elsewhere, maybe Pitt. 

With 6 pitchers on the roster without her, I don't think Bridget was expecting her back any way.

If Pitt, it's a good program with new facilities, but personally, I think if she wants to succeed in business, NYC is the place to be.

So apparently Quense changed her mind and will come back.  That gives us 7 pitchers, although most can also play a position.
