The Red Foxes suffered a big loss when former MAAC Rookie of the Year Nicole Cheek transferred to another school after the 2014 season. However, Marist will retain a very strong and experienced roster this season, including three upperclassmen coming off All-MAAC seasons (sophomore Janna Korak is the fourth All-MAACer on the team). Their top two pitchers are now seniors, and both had good seasons in '14. Melanie White in particular was outstanding down the stretch. With a well coached lineup still filled with good hitters and runners, expect the Red Foxes to make another run to the top.
