Fairfield, Conn.—The Sacred Heart Softball Team welcomed back alumni as part of SHU Homecoming Weekend 2012. The current 2012-13 Pioneers took on past players this past Saturday on the new Pioneer Park.
"It was a great event," said Co-Head Coach Elizabeth Luckie. "It was good to see out Alumni come back and play."
This season's squad defeated the alumni 1-0. After being shut out for the first six innings, the 2012-13 Pioneers scored the only run on the game on Kacie Wentworth's (Canton, N.Y.) walk-off single.
Annie Dreher (Saugus, Calif.) led off the inning with a double and advanced to third on Justine Sibthorp's (Santa Clarita, Calif.) single. Dreher held at third as Sibthorp moved to second on Kate Nadler's (Southbury, Conn.) fielder's choice 6-3 out. With both runners in scoring position, Wentworth hit the ball to the gap scoring Dreher to win the game in the bottom of the seventh.
