LAJEUNESSE ON POWLOWSKY- "Nastasha is our steady influence behind the plate. She does a tremendous job handling the pitching staff and communicating with us about calling the game. We are also looking for her to have her best offensive season as a Saint. We feel that Nastasha can be a solid gap to gap hitter who can show some power."
