Niagara's All-MAAC IF/pitcher Bridget Hogan will sit out the 2015 season after undergoing successful surgery this week and qualifying for medical redshirt status.
Bridget Hogan began to notice a problem with her hip late last season, but apparently it did not slow down her production, which earned her conference honors. She hit .313 last season, including three home runs. In conference play, she ranked seventh in the MAAC with a .410 average. But she finished the season hobbling, and this week had surgery to correct a bone spur and labrum tear. She is expected to make a full recovery, but will be out 4-6 months rehabilitating. She will return with three years of eligibility remaining.
