College Sports Madness has named Junior Paige Lloyd to the 2014 MAAC Preseason All Conference Team First Team.
Lloyd paced the Saints offensively last season in which the team won the MAAC Regular Season Championship. Lloyd was third in the MAAC and led the team in batting average (.377) and finished with 46 hits and a team best eight home runs. Last season, Lloyd was named to the 2013 All-MAAC First Team.
Joining Lloyd on the College Sports Madness Preseason Team includes senior pitcher Jessika-Jo Sandrini, who was named to the second team. Sandrini was named All-MAAC First Team as a Utility player and All MAAC Second Team as a pitcher for the Saints last year. Sandrini placed in the top-10 of the MAAC in batting average (.361), third in the MAAC in doubles (12) and led the MAAC with 15 wins.
The Saints start their season in a couple weeks when they travel to Johnson City, Tennessee for the Buccaneer Challenge Presented by Holiday Inn on February 22-23 to play Oakland and East Tennessee State.
