Fairfield Gets In On The Sister Act

The 2011-12 MAAC softball signing period will be remembered as a family affair. The Nappos at Canisius; the Sandrinis at Siena; and now the Filicias at Fairfield!

Lauren Filicia has signed a National Letter of Intent to play softball at Fairfield University beginning in the 2013 season. Lauren will be joining sister Kristen, who had a great freshman season in '11. But as is the case with the other MAAC sisters, Lauren Filicia is a fine player in her own right.

A Palomar League First Teamer at Torrey Pines High School in San Diego, Lauren is a middle infielder coming off a great 2011 season with the Falcons, hitting .324, with 20 RBIs and 17 runs. She hit .365 her sophomore season, and has stolen 12 bases out of 13 attempts the last two years. Lauren plays travel ball with the San Diego Power Surge; she has also played with the San Diego Renegades.

Congratulations Lauren!
