January 25, 2013BROOKDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Lincroft, NJ -- Brookdale Community College baseball and softball teams have been recognized in the 2013 NJCAA Preseason polls, according to NJCAA.org. The softball team, ranked third in the Nation, will seek to capture their first Region XIX title since 2010. Gloucester, who upended Brookdale in the past three Region championships, is currently ranked second in the poll.
Brookdale returns four starters from their Region XIX runner-up team, led by All-Region and All-GSAC catcher Kathleen Sharpe. Molly Carroll (first baseman), Allie Muratore (third baseman); Carly Gleason (pitcher) round up the returning starters while other key returners include Brianna Davidson (outfield); Ashley Rodriguez (DP); Angie Hauser (utility).
“I am flattered that our program is recognized going into the 2013 season. Hopefully, through hard work, we can live up to that ranking,” noted head coach Bo Scannapieco.
The baseball team, headed by Johnny Johnson, is ranked ninth. “The preseason ranking is great recognition for the kids, but it really matters where you end up at the end of the season,” commented Coach Johnson. “This team can finish in the top five if they play up to their abilities.”
The Jersey Blues return key infielders in Dean Wilson (2B) and Dave Egeland (1B), who was an All-Region XIX selection last year. Key returners on the mound include Will Siegfried (P) and Ryan Sullivan (P).
