Rachel Quackenbush Signs With Siena

Courtesy of the Times Union

I forgot to post this during the excitement of the MAAC softball home stretch; it's a huge signing for Siena College, one that, in my opinion, sets the Saints up as a serious contender for the MAAC crown in the coming seasons.

Rachel Quackenbush of Hoosick Falls, NY has signed a National Letter Of Intent to play softball at Siena College beginning with the 2013 season. The second most prolific strikeout pitcher in New York State High School history, Rachel averages about two Ks per inning. She's thrown 16 no hitters, including one this season where she struck out 18...and lost! She won't have that problem with the powerful Saints. Rachel is not just a flame thrower; she has a full array of pitches, and is an intense competitor, leading Hoosick Falls to a couple of State championship appearances. She can hit too.

Congratulations Rachel!

She's left Siena before thanksgiving break; anyone know why?

First I've heard of it. That's too bad.
Rider also lost a pitcher.

I don't really think it's a good idea for anyone to be leaving speculative comments concerning this. Iona, Canisius and Rider have also lost players. It doesn't always work out.
