Former West Chester University Standout Catcher, Erin Quense, to Join Coaching Staff of the Lionville Lightning 14U Gold for 2017-2018 Season
We are very excited to announce that former West Chester University standout catcher, Erin Quense, will be joining the coaching staff of the Lightning 14U Gold for the 2017-2018 season.
After a successful travel and high school (Neshaminy High) softball career in Langhorne, PA, Erin went on to play college softball at West Chester University from 2012-2015 where she was a 3-year starter at catcher and 4-year letterwinner. In 459 career AB, Erin hit .270 with 17 HR, 17 2B and 75 RBI. Behind the plate, Erin was an excellent receiver with a strong and accurate arm throwing out 30% of opponents attempting to steal.
Erin was a key member of the WCU team that reached the 2014 NCAA Division II Softball Championships where she hit .571 (4-for-7) with a home run and 3 RBI, and was selected to the All-Tournament Team.
The Lionville Lightning 12U Gold took 2nd place in the 12U C division of USSSA 2017 Fireworks Classic WSQ played at Black Rock Park in Phoenixville, PA, on July 1-2, 2017. After winning its first 2 games in Sunday's Championship play 8-4 and 9-2, the Lightning Gold advanced to the Final, which featured a match-up between the top 2 12U C teams in PA by USSSA power rankings. The No. 2 ranked Lightning Gold lost 3-2 to the No. 1 ranked Towamencin Xplosion in a well-played Final.
Congratulations to the Lionville Lightning 12U Gold who look to conclude their successful season at the 2017 Ruth Hartman Memorial Fastpitch Tournament, 12U Open, at BIG Vision in Leesport, PA, on July 8-9!
