NOTES AROUND THE CONFERENCE
In the March 7 National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Top-25 Poll, Christopher Newport is ranked No. 6 and Salisbury is receiving votes ...

In her first three starts of the year, Salisbury senior Rachael Milligan went 2-1 and nearly notched her first career no-hitter.

Southern Virginia sophomore Megan Harmon went 3-1 on the mound last week, with the loss coming in extra innings to Guilford. She also knocked in four RBIs and scored five runs.

Wesley freshman infielder Bianca Newsom opened the Fast Pitch Dreams Spring Classic going 4-for-4 with four RBIs and three runs scored, including hitting an inside-the-park three-run home run to left field in the fourth inning in Wesley's 14-5 five inning win over St. Joseph (Conn.). Freshman Juli Neel pitched two perfect innings of shutout relief with three strikeouts in the win.
