Softball Announces Recruiting Class

WORCESTER, Mass. - Head Coach Jon Ladino and his staff has announced their incoming class that will joining the Assumption College softball program for the 2019 season. 

"As my first recruiting class here at Assumption, this group of exceptional young women will always be special for me.  I am very excited for this class because I believe that they will help our program take the next step in competing in the NE10.  The one attribute that all of these young women have, outside of loving the sport of softball, is their want and desire to work hard and get better every day.  These young women are also tremendous students who are going to continue to push our program to improve in the classroom.  I cannot wait to get them on the field and in the classroom and see them contribute".
