Jen Sansano Transfers To Niagara
The landscape in the MAAC just changed with a major signing by Niagara this week.
Jennifer Sansano, formerly of the Atlantic 10's St. Bonaventure Bonnies, has transferred to Niagara effective immediately, and will play for the Purple Eagles as the 2013 softball season gets underway next month.
The former All-New York State AA First Teamer and Western New York Pitcher Of The Year played at perennial power Clarence High School, where she smashed all pitching records. She pitched two seasons at St. Bonaventure, where she was 11-12 last year, including a no hitter.
Jen will join Kim Bryson on the pitching staff, giving the Purple Eagles a potentially potent double threat as both enter their junior seasons. Kim looks to be the premier power pitcher in the conference this season. They will be backed up by a pair of promising prospects, Brittney Sears and Sydney Smyers, giving Niagara more pitching depth than they've had in many seasons.
Welcome to the MAAC Jen!
