To-be-Jr Jess Hughes, one of our best players, transferred to Rutgers.  This is a major loss, especially offensively.  (.370 BA, 11 HRs, 23 SBs.)

We also lost to-be-Soph Taylor Stocks, a lefty pitcher with a 1.77 ERA, but with only 59 innings.  I'm not sure yet as to where.  With Quense coming back (as a grad student) along with to-be-Soph, Aughinbaugh, and with 3 freshmen pitchers coming in, she probably saw the handwriting on the wall.  Quense pitched 208 innings, with a 2.49 ERA and Aughinbaugh pitched 140 innings, with a 2.00 ERA.

In addition we lost to-be-Soph Steph Rundlett, another pitcher who only had 3 IP and a 8.40 ERA.

I see incoming freshman Rauch, AA NYS POY as our 3rd starter.

Didn't know you had to sit out a year as a transfer.  Thought it was only for Basketball and football.

Curious about why Hughes transferred, the Big 10 is a strong conference but Rutgers is not a good program

Am a little curious myself.  She was a Communications major, which has a good reputation at Fordham, so I doubt it was that, although we've lost 1 or 2 in the past who ultimately wanted to major in something Fordham didn't have.  Being a Jersey girl, it wasn't like she was homesick being at Fordham.  Anything else I had heard in the way of rumors, I thought kind of went away.   I would have expected another ring or two for her at Fordham.

Rutgers last year was 14-37.  We beat them 11-3 (5), 14-5 (5) and 8-4.

We certainly have the pitching to win the A10 still.  The freshmen will really have to step up to fill the other holes though.

You're right.  I misread the Rutgers announcement and corrected my note.

Could be 4 players.  Figueroa isn't on the current roster either.  Remember, she was our starting left fielder and had a bad concussion at the end of the year.

She's still at Fordham and plans to graduate early, just unable to play yet.

To summarize, Softball has lost starters Vergona (C), Van Hoven (SS), and Canessa (CF) to graduation; Hughes (2b) to transfer; and Figueroa (LF) to apparent injury.  This was some our best offense too, other than Shaw.
