Amherst senior catcher/shortstop Amanda Arendt recently signed a national letter of intent to play softball at Niagara.
"I watched them play a doubleheader when I went on my visit and liked their style of play and how the coach [Al Dirschberger] handled his players," said Arendt. "That's an offensive-minded team and the coach is straight-forward with the players. He expects a lot from them but is not condescending."
Arendt, who is hitting .476 with 14 RBI, has been told Niagara will need a third baseman.
"I'll have to earn a starting spot at third base but the coaches gave me the impression I'll have a chance to contribute immediately," said Arendt. "And I've already played third base, so that won't be a problem."
