It's hard to believe Kyllie Magill, the former St. Raphael Academy All-State softball catcher, is now in her final semester at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. It seems like only yesterday she had been drilling doubles and blocking the plate for the Saints, who always were in contention to win the Division I state title.
"This season, I'd like to win the A-10 championship, and also win an NCAA (Division I) Regional (game)," she explained via e-mail Monday. "We have an All-American pitcher (Plourde) and some great players, so I think we have the tools to do that.
"We have a shot to go undefeated in the conference with the great team we have, and that would be cool, too," she continued. "Individually, I just want to be a great leader, give my team good at-bats and be a strong presence on the field."
