Chestnut Hill, Mass. - The BC softball team will welcome five new players to The Heights in 2013-14 after they signed NLIs as announced by Head Coach Ashley Obrest on Tuesday.
Allie Chase of Doylestown, Pa., Taylor Coroneos of Sewell, N.J., Tatiana Cortez of Houston, Madison Paulson of Windermere, Fla., and Jordan Weed of Toms River, N.J. will all become members of the Eagles next year.
"Our future looks bright and promising with the addition of these five talented student-athletes. This class brings strong defense, pitching, speed, and power to the program and we look for each of them to be immediate impact players," said Obrest.
Allie Chase, an outfielder for the Newtown Rock and Central Bucks High School East, was a 2012 Class AAAA All-State selection. In 2012, Chase had a .471 batting average, .513 on base percentage, and a .714 slugging percentage. Her performance last season led to First Team All-Pennsylvania and Continental Conference accolades.
Taylor Coroneos, an outfielder for the New Jersey Gators and Washington Township High School, was All-South Jersey First Team and All Group Four Second Team in 2012. Coroneos had surpassed the 100 hits mark by her junior year and finished last season with a .438 batting average and .512 on base percentage.
Tatiana Cortez, a catcher and third baseman for the Texas Impact and Westside High School, was ranked in the top five in the Greater Houston area and top 10 statewide in all offensive categories in 2012. Cortez was also named First Team All-District for the third consecutive season.
Madison Paulson, a shortstop for the Windermere Wildfire and West Orange High School, was named First Team All-Conference and District in 2012. During her tenure, Paulson helped lead the team to three straight conference championships and three straight district championships. Madison finished her career with a .456 batting average, 15 home runs, 55 doubles, and a fielding percentage of .974.
Jordan Weed, a pitcher for the New Jersey Intensity and Toms River High School East, recorded 14 shutouts in 2012 with an ERA of 0.80. She concluded the 2012 campaign with a 26-3 record and 208 strikeouts. Weed broke the Ocean County Tournament all-time record with 28.1 shutout innings. Jordan also garnered All-Shore, All-Division, All-County, and All-State Group Four honors for her performance during the 2012 season.
"All five are competitive young ladies who have the necessary tools, drive, and commitment it takes to be successful at Boston College," said Obrest.
