The Peahens are coming off a tough 2009 season that saw them finish 2-12 in the MAAC, but they are in rebuilding mode under 2nd year Head Coach Donna Barone. Returning will be sophomore catcher Samantha Bennett who had a productive first year with 3 homers and a .269 batting average. The Peahens have a talented class of freshmen coming in this year (and next year as well), and will begin to build around 2 of the rookies---pitchers Kimberly Prevedal and Shelby Beaver, who both had very successful high school and travel ball careers. 2010 may be filled with growing pains for a young St. Peter's team, but the future is looking bright.
