Dec. 1, 2008

Fairfield, CT- Co-Head Coaches Elizabeth Luckie and Pam London announced today that Nicole Sidor of Vancouver, British Columbia has signed a national letter of intent and will be a Pioneer for the 2009-10 campaign. Sidor is a pitcher and outfielder with outstanding numbers at both the Canadian national and high school levels.

Sidor is a member of Team British Columbia for the 2009 Canada Summer Games. In 2007 she led her U16 team to a Canadian National Championship. Sidor was named the MVP of the round robin portion of the tournament and the top player in the championship round. She followed up that performance the next year as her U18 team finished second in the country.

Sidor's numbers are just as impressive as her accolades. In 2007 she pitched in 61 games and compiled a record of 47-3 with an earned run average of 0.75. She also struck out 636 batters and averaged 1.75 strike outs per inning. Her 2008 pitching numbers are only comprised at the national level where Sidor has a record of 31-10 and an ERA of 1.16.

The right hander is also very capable with a bat in her hands  She averaged .414 and struck out only nine times in 258 at bats in 2007. At the national level in 2008, Sidor is hitting .423 with 17 RBI and only three strike outs.

Co-Head Coach Pam London is very excited about the acquisition of Sidor. "I am thrilled that Nicole has chosen to play her collegiate softball career here at Sacred Heart. She will have an immediate impact on this program. She is a talented all around player that brings a great deal of intensity and big game experience to our team."
