Binghamton softball adds local utility player

VESTAL, N.Y.--The Binghamton softball program has announced that Meghan Tucker (Windsor, N.Y.), a current utility player at nearby Windsor High School, will join the Bearcats next spring as a freshman. Tucker also plays summer ball for the STPS Ponies out of Binghamton.

"Meghan is a solid worker with good intensity," head coach Ali Brian said. "She knows the game well and will be a fine addition to our program both athletically and academically."

As of now, the Bearcats will have four new players on the roster in 2009. Last fall, Binghamton received a National Letter of Intent from pitchers Kristen Emerling (Germantown, Tenn.) and Kate Price (Brewerton, N.Y.) as well as infielder Colleen Whitaker (Salinas, Calif.).

"We are excited to add depth to the pitching staff and solidify the future of the rotation with the signing of Emerling and Price," Brian said. "Colleen Whitaker and Meghan Tucker are both utility players that have outstanding academic credentials to go along with exceptional athletic ability. All four signings fit the profile of what Binghamton University wants to add to the tri-cities community."
