Win Or Lose, The Lady Jaspers Are Champions

This past Saturday, when the Manhattan College softball team traveled to Niagara to continue their heated rivalry with the Purple Eagles, a team that had eliminated them from the past two MAAC tournaments, they found it in their hearts to take up a collection for former Niagara player Jenna Baker, who was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma. They presented this collection, and a photo collage of Jenna from her playing days, which was highlighted by the slogan "Fight as hard as you played", to Jenna and Niagara Coach Al Dirschberger. The Niagara softball family is grateful for this kind gesture on the part of the young women of the Manhattan softball team, their coaches, families and fans.
