MAAC Players---Sarah Minice, Fairfield
2009 MAAC Pitcher Of The Year Sarah Minice led Fairfield to a first place regular season finish last season. She carried the light hitting Stags on her shoulders, pitching 26 innings in 2 games in the MAAC Championship. Fairfield lost both those games, but not because of Sarah. In the 16 inning game against Manhattan (the longest game in MAAC history), she seemed to get stronger as the game dragged on. That after pitching 10 innings against Niagara the previous day.
Sarah, entering her junior year, has been a MAAC 1st teamer twice, and in 2009 was named to the NFCA All-Northeast Region Team. A native of Bellevue, WA, she was 2 time King County AAA MVP in High School. She played travel ball with the Washington Sidewinders; this summer she was on the Sidewinders 23U team that played in the prestigious Canada Cup.
Sarah will baffle MAAC hitters for the next 2 seasons.
