LAJEUNESSE ON FILIPPAZZO- "Amanda has demonstrated the ability to put together some tremendous games. We are looking for her to have her best season in a Saint uniform as a seven inning starter. Her record the past three seasons doesn't reflect how well she has pitched for us, and having her back as a leader in the circle is a key component to this team's success."
