Bill Lajeunesse's Young Saints

I wanted to follow up on my post of Siena's new Head Coach Bill Lajeunesse to point out that he's stepping into a situation with a lot of upside. The Saints have some very good young players on the roster and about to be on the roster.

Shannon Jones is a player to build around. She made All-MAAC 2nd team her freshman season after leading the team with a .344 average.

Mandy Ferro also had a terrific freshman season, hitting .323.

And arriving this year will be two outstanding pitchers, Darcy Gardner and Jessika-Jo Sandrini. Jessika-Jo may turn out to be Siena's best recruit ever; she is also a great hitter.

The Saints played well at the end of the 2010 season, and the Iona Gaels just proved what a difference a year can make.
