Bragging again!

Ok, here is dad bragging again about his daughter.
Leigh was named Empire 8 Conference Woman of the Year, and will represent the conference for balloting for the NCAA Woman of the Year. Nice article here . The Ithaca teams are called the Bombers.

There are eight New York State colleges in the Empire 8. Leigh is the only Bomber to earn all region honors from the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) four times, receiving first-team recognition in 2004, 2005 and 2006 after being picked to the second team as a freshman. She is the Empire 8’s only four-time first-team all-conference selection and was named the league’s Player of the Year in 2005.

Leigh is now finishing her internship with Vagabond Cruises in Hilton Head, SC, and gets to work on Stars and Stripes, the boat that Dennis Connor lost the America's Cup in.
