Raiders Alum & 12U Coach Sheri Liggiero an All-Star
May 10, 2014
Sophomore centerfielder Sheri Liggiero (Tewksbury, Mass.) became the first Newbury College softball player to be named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Division III All-Region Softball Third Team, announced Saturday morning.
The announcement comes a week after Liggiero was named to the New England Collegiate Conference(NECC) First Team for the second consecutive season. A catalyst atop the Nighthawk line-up hitting a career single-season best .394 (43-108) with an outstanding .459 on-base percentage, the Tewksbury, Mass native tormented opposing pitchers on the base-paths. Leading the NECC swiping single-season high 19 of 21 bases - including 16 against conference foes, Liggiero ranks 51st amongst all Division III in stolen bases averaging 0.54 per game.
Midway through the season, she went on a career, five-week long, 13-game hitting streak from March 7th to April 13th where she hit .512 (22-43) with two doubles, 15 runs scored and successfully stealing eight of eight on the base-paths. In addition, Liggiero has also anchored the Nighthawk outfield, playing a near flawless centerfield which included robbing NECC Pitcher and Player of the Year, Elms junior Beth Grimes of a would-be homerun in the first round of the NECC Tournament on April 30th.
Liggiero was just one of two players from the NECC to be named to the NFCA Division III All-Region Team. Lesley University first year McKenzi Golden was named to the NFCA Division III All-Region First Team.

Raiders' Danielle Deraney named to All-BIG East team

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College softball sophomores Kiki Baldassari (Denville, N.J.) and Danielle Deraney (Shrewsbury, Mass.) were named to All-BIG EAST teams, it was announced on Tuesday, May 6 by the conference. Baldassari was named to the First Team, while Deraney earned Second Team honors. It marks the first time a Friar has made the All-BIG EAST First Team since outfielder Mary Rose Sheey did so in 2009.

Deraney finished the year second on the team in batting average (.319) and hits (28). She started all 19 of the teams' BIG EAST games and recorded a .321 batting average in league competition. Deraney hit safely in 17 of the 27 games she appeared in. During the season, Deraney split time between first base and the designated player position.
