Another player from the great Notre Dame High School (Elmira, NY) team will be joining the MAAC.
Sydney Dimon of Elmira, NY will sign a National Letter Of Intent today, becoming a member of the Iona Gaels beginning with the 2013 season. Sydney is a catcher and third baseman for the New York State champions. She had a fabulous 2011 season, hitting .568 with a lofty slugging percentage of .966. She drove home 38 runs in 26 games, with an impressive 18 doubles to her credit. She was named an All-New York State player for her efforts. Sydney is an outstanding defensive player as well, at both positions. She has a very strong arm, and works well with her pitchers. At third base, she uses her good speed to snag bunts. In 2011 she was perfect in the field, committing no errors. Sydney plays travel ball with the Conklin Raiders Gold, the only New York State team to make it to the ASA Nationals last season.
