"I play with a lot of great defenses and they help me look my best, as well," she added. "Boston College is a perfect fit because they have great academics and a great softball team."

When Steve Addazio strolled into Chestnut Hill for his first season at the helm of Boston College's program, which was coming off of a 2-10 season, he made a splash right away. His talk of "Be a Dude" and his strong personality raised some eyebrows, certainly. Yeah, he might be a good hire, but it would take awhile to turn around that team. Turns out, it didn't -- Boston College finished 7-6 and made a bowl game on the strength of an aggressive defense and a fantastic running back. But unfortunately for The Dudes entering this season, there are just 10 returning starters and not a ton of depth. That's the part that is going to take time for Addazio to rebuild.

Addazio on the team's objectives and take-aways from the spring: "Well, there are several things. First off, it's our second year in the program, and continuity with just knowing the calls and the system was a big advantage. I thought we reestablished our offensive line. I feel like we have the opportunity to have a great front, again, which I think was really important to us. The physicality, the toughness was still established in the spring.

After all, BC's season-ending loss to Union occurred in the same building. The outcome is why Demko refuses to call his seemingly boffo frosh season a complete success.
