MAAC Players---Becky Zill, Niagara

Playing in the shadow of Teresa Healy didn't hinder Niagara's Becky Zill in 2011. In fact, she matched the MAAC Player Of The Year in power, and was rewarded with a first team All-MAAC spot.

Becky had a fabulous sophomore season, at the top of the MAAC leaders with 12 homers and 35 RBIs. This in only 40 games. She also hit for a .344 average. Her .672 slugging percentage was one of the best in the conference---when the tall, athletic catcher gets a piece of the ball, it often travels quite far. She was tops in home runs in conference games (7), and was one of only two players to drive home 20 runs in MAAC play. She drove home 12 runs in Niagara's sweep of St. Peter's. Becky is outstanding behind the plate also, with a .979 fielding percentage in '11.

Becky will drive outfielders back to the fence for two more seasons!
