LIU Post Ranked No. 7 in NFCA Preaseason Top 25

Louisville, Ky. - After advancing to the Division II World Series as East Region Champions in 2014, the LIU Post softball team begins the 2015 season ranked in the top 10 in the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Division II Top 25 poll. The Pioneers come in at No. 7 in the preseason ranking.

Last season LIU Post had one of the most successful seasons in its history, winning a program-record 50 games, an ECC Championship, and their fourth East Region title. Six starting position players, including reigning ECC Player of the Year, Aly Dzierzynski, and three of four pitchers return from that squad in 2014.

The Pioneers, who were the only East Region team in the preseason Top 25, begin their season on March 1 when they take on Long Island rival, Adelphi.
