Knights Softball Picked to finish 12th in NEC Pre-Season Poll

SOMERSET, NJ – The Fairleigh Dickinson University softball tean has been picked to finish 12th in the Northeast Conference (NEC), according to a poll of league head coaches.  Defending champion Long Island is the unanimous pre-season favorite followed by Robert Morris and UMBC.

In only its second season back after a 15-year hiatus, the FDU softball program has much to look forward to in 2002.  Head coach Bob Bruno will guide a team consisting of 15 underclassmen, including 11 newcomers.  Although the Knights will be young, a successful fall season has raised expectations for the team, if not for the league’s head coaches.

The Knights open their season with a doubleheader at Coppin State in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, March 16th.  After three more dates near the nation’s capitol and in Virginia, the team returns to their home field on Saturday, March 23rd, opening up the NEC slate with two games versus Mt. St. Mary’s beginning at 1pm.

The 2002 Knights will play their home games at field number seven in Foschini Park in Hackensack, New Jersey, located just one-half mile from campus.
