PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College softball sophomores Kiki Baldassari (Denville, N.J.) and Danielle Deraney (Shrewsbury, Mass.) were named to All-BIG EAST teams, it was announced on Tuesday, May 6 by the conference. Baldassari was named to the First Team, while Deraney earned Second Team honors. It marks the first time a Friar has made the All-BIG EAST First Team since outfielder Mary Rose Sheey did so in 2009.
In the BIG EAST, Baldassari ended the year ranked tied for first in hits (28), tied for second in stolen bases (7) and fifth with a .418 batting average (conference only).
The sophomore started all 35 of the team's games this season and registered at least one hit in 27 of those games. Out of the 27 games, nine were multi-hit games. The outfielder led the Friars in batting average (.356), hits (42), runs scored (18) and stolen bases (12) this season. She is currently on pace to set career records for batting average, runs scored, hits and stolen bases. In her rookie year, Baldassari ranked second all-time for single season runs scored (42) and third all-time in single season hits (62).
Baldassari also was named to the weekly BIG EAST honor roll yesterday (May 5) for batting a league-best .600 in a four-game week while facing the conference's No. 2 pitching staff (Creighton) in a three-game series. Baldassari added two RBI and a double as well.
Deraney finished the year second on the team in batting average (.319) and hits (28). She started all 19 of the teams' BIG EAST games and recorded a .321 batting average in league competition. Deraney hit safely in 17 of the 27 games she appeared in. During the season, Deraney split time between first base and the designated player position.
