The Stags of Fairfield University rode the arm of 2009 MAAC Pitcher Of The Year Sarah Minice all the way to a regular season 1st place finish. However, their lack of offense cost them in the Tournament where they lost 2 extra inning games. Sarah was dominant in MAAC games, posting a record of 11-3 and a 1.49 ERA. She should be even better this, her junior season. If the Stags can increase their 2009 .236 batting average, the Stags would have to be considered the favorites to win it all.
