Softball Team Heads for Region 19 Tournament


WEST WINDSOR, N.J. - The women's softball team, whose record stands at 26-11, will head for the Region 19 tournament this weekend at the County College of Morris. The Vikings enter the tournament as the no. 4 seed, after Burlington, Del Tech and Morris.

Head coach Ryan Zegarski reflects on the team's progress during the season and considers a regional title a definite possibility. In their two regular season games against no. 1 Burlington, the Vikings lost their first contest 4-3 in extra innings and a second game 3-1. In both match-ups, Zegarski said, "we just needed a few timely two-out hits and we would have won."

Anchoring the team is the consistent pitching of sophomore Jenna Berger, who will be on the mound for the Vikings this weekend. Backing up Berger is freshman Beth Rochon, who has also done a great job for the team, according to Zegarski.

Topping the hitting list are Berger and freshman outfielder Alyssa Becker, along with freshman catcher/outfielder Angela Parascando, who leads the team in home runs with four. "She stabilizes the middle of the line-up," Zegarski said.

As they head into the regionals, Zegarski is still tinkering with the line-up. "You strive to get it perfect -- to place players in exactly the position where they can be most effective," he said.
