Bridget Hogan Commits To Niagara

Purple Eagles add to impressive young staff
Bridget Hogan of Boston, NY has verbally committed to play softball at Niagara University beginning in the 2014 season.

New Niagara coach Ellie Chan continues to build her version of the Purple Eagles with an emphasis on strong pitching. Today she received a commitment from All-New York State first teamer Bridget Hogan. Bridget is in her senior year at Hamburg High School, after having led the Bulldogs to their first ever New York State championship appearance this past season. She was dominant in the circle, posting a 17-1 record with a miniscule 0.28 ERA. She has a full array of pitches, striking out 211 batters in 123 innings. She showed great control, walking only 15. Bridget can hit also, batting .423 in '12 with 13 extra base hits and a slugging percentage of over .600. She plays travel ball with Team Mizuno Gold, the 2012 ASA Eastern National champions.

Congratulations Bridget!

Niagara won both games against Mercyhurst yesterday. They seem to have great chemistry & play with a lot of intensity.
I am looking forward to seeing them play this spring.

I agree that Niagara definitely has team chemistry & intensity in place! The excitement around this team is very noticable.
The Wayne girl had a huge day for Niagara including 2 homeruns. Kim Bryson is throwing very well & the other pitchers are showing flashes of promise. The freshman first baseman Becca S. seems to be on base constantly & is playing great defense. If Becky Zill returns to form after her surgery this team will be a force.
There seems to be a good mix of speed & power on this team.

I Wish Niagara's website would give an update on this past weekends softball games against Mercyhurst.

Just wishful thinking.

The team played great & gets no recognition on the site.
