Highlights from the 2004-2005 Banquet:
The Neumann College women's softball team held its annual banquet on Tuesday, May 11, in the Schmidt Room at Living and Learning Center on the NC campus, celebrating the successes of the 2004-05 season and honoring some of the players who helped the Knights reach the semifinals of the conference tournament.
Captain Erin Fagan and newcomer Kelli Ann Meehan were honored as the team's Most Valuable Players. Fagan, a four-year team captain, was in the top five in batting average, slugging percentage, on base percentage, runs scores, hits, and doubles this season. Meehan, the 2005 PAC Rookie of the Year, was also a two-time PAC Pitcher of the Week and earned ECAC Southern Player of the Week honors earlier in the season. Knights sophomore Traci Reed was voted by her coaches as the squad's Most Improved Player, while Erin Fagan was presented with the St. Francis & Clare Award. According to head coach Bill Saar, Fagan "is a player who truly represents the ideals of a NC Knight." Fagan, who appeared in 31 games during the season, was lauded for her unselfishness, her willingness to do whatever is asked of her, her passion, her hustle, and her consistent voice in cheering on her teammates.
The Knights improved in 2004-05 earning the winningest record in program history (18-21).The 2004-05 softball team, finished fifth in the PAC regular season standings with a 13-9 conference record and advanced to the conference tournament semifinals for the first time in program history. The Knights will lose just one player for the 2005-06 season due to graduation and will hope generate more accomplishments next season.
