Albany (N.Y.) wins American East title

STONY BROOK, N.Y. -- One out from elimination, Albany (N.Y.) rallied for a win in Game 6 and cruised to victory in Game 7 of the 2014 America East Softball Championship against Stony Brook en route to capturing the conference title Sunday at Stony Brook’s field.

Elizabeth Snow’s three-run home run in the 10th inning gave the Great Danes (33-11) a 3-2 win in the first game of the day and they got timely hitting in the nightcap en route to an 8-1 win versus the Seawolves (34-18) and the league crown.

The Great Danes, whose championship is its fifth all-time, also earned America East’s automatic bid to the NCAA Softball championship and will learn its NCAA draw Sunday night during the selection show.

Brittany MacFawn earned her second Most Outstanding Player trophy by earning three wins and a save during the weekend. She allowed just three runs in 17 innings of work in Albany’s two wins against Stony Brook on Saturday.

MacFawn was joined on the all-championship team by teammates Snow, Charlise Castro and Marlin Solano, Stony Brook’s Allison Cukrov, Jessica Combs and Olivia Mintun, Binghamton’s Jessica Bump and Bridget Hunt and UMBC’s Chelsea Bertoglio and Danielle O’Neill.

Welcome to the Sweet 16. No, not that Sweet 16, but the bracket for the Great Nickname Showdown in Division I. That way we can decide a national champion – March Madness for monikers, even if it’s December.A word or two about criteria. Uniqueness counted heavily, as did quirkiness. But an interesting back story also scored highly. Since there are no metrics for nicknames – couldn’t find one thing on KenPom – no seeding was done. This Sweet 16 was bracketed by a blind draw, which might leave the NCAA selection committee aghast.
