Hofstra softball inks standout NJ Player
Hofstra softball head coach Bill Edwards inked a commitment yesterday from New Jersey standout softball player Nicole Hagerty on the first day of the 2009/2010 early signing period. While yesterday made Hagerty's softball future at Hofstra official, she verbally committed to play for the Pride the summer before her junior year, according to a story in today's Newark Star-Ledger. Hagerty, a pitcher at Gloucester Catholic High School, said in the Star-Ledger article she expects to play first base at Hofstra and has been in constant contact with the Pride coaching staff since taking part in a workout program they provided. Hagerty was selected to the Star-Ledger's 2009 All South Jersey Third Team.
