|Pitcher Allie Block made her debut with Canisius this weekend|
Niagara played in the same tournament, and although they were held winless, the big news for them was the return of ALL-MAACer Bridget Hogan. Bridget, a redshirt sophomore, missed the entire 2015 season after major surgery. She's fully recovered, and had a good tournament hitting and pitching.
Iona opened their fall season Saturday, splitting a pair of games at St. John's. They lost to the host team, but finished with a come from behind win thanks in large part to Christine Costello's two run seventh inning double to beat Sacred Heart. The Gaels also had a player of note return from a lost season. ALL-MAACer "Gnarly" Carly Argyle got back into action after being out the whole 2015 season, hitting and pitching well. She will be a redshirt senior. The last time Iona had one of them, they won it all.
Marist also opened fall ball Saturday, with a pair of home wins. St. Peter's, Siena, Rider and Fairfield will all be in action on Sunday.
