The Knights, under the guidance of Head Coach Bill Saar,
This season the Knights have been led by freshman pitcher and 2006 PAC Tournament MVP Angela Sebasto, who strives to make her way as a team leader in the history of Neumann Knights softball. Sebasto not only holds a record of 16-2 with an ERA of 1.67, the best in Neumann Knights history, she also has a .495 batting average and is the 2006 Neumann Knights homerun leader. She is joined by returning sophomore pitcher Kelli Ann Meehan who is currently ranked in the top 100 NCAA Division III with and ERA of 1.82 and a batting average of .500.
Fellow freshman Caitlin Hanrahan adds more punch to the scoring prowess by providing the Knights with a .586 slugging percentage. Hanrahan is currently ranked 13th for runs batted in, among NCAA Division III softball players. Hanrahan is currently batting .371.
Neumann Knights Danielle Hayes is also a key benefactor for the Knights. The freshman second baseman has blossomed into one of the top rookies in the area. Hayes is second on the team behind Sebasto in slugging percentage (.619) and homeruns with 4. Lauren Gallagher and Kim Zlupko round out the Knights top five hitting leaders and Chandra Moore is also in the mix increasing the offensive force of the Knights with her clutch hitting style.
Two-time All-PAC honoree Kirsten Lawlor anchors a strong defensive unit. She is joined by Christina Walsh, Samantha Duncan, Traci Reed, Audrie Porter, Cindy Steigerwalt, and Tracie Seagraves who give the Knights all they need to shut down any offense.
If the Knights defeat Ramapo on Thursday, they will face the winner of the Haverford-Salisbury game on Friday at 2:00 p.m.
