No school in the MAAC suffered greater losses to graduation this year than the Red Foxes. They lost 2 great players, Jessica Green and all time Marist hitting leader and 2009 MAAC Player Of The Year Melissa Giordano. Also departed is their starting pitcher, MAAC First Teamer Caitlin Carpentier. Obviously these players can't be immediately replaced, but the Red Foxes do have a talented group of freshmen joining the team this season and also have 2009 MAAC Co-Rookie Of The Year Nicole DiVirgilio in the lineup. This may (or may not) be a rebuilding year for Head Coach Joe Ausanio, but his team will be competitive in 2010.
