Pierce Named to America East All-Championship Team

Vestal, N.Y.-- Freshman outfielder Sierra Pierce (Youngstown, Ohio) was named to the America East All-Championship Team, the conference announced Sunday afternoon. 

Pierce had a single, double and stole home in the elimination game against Maine which gave UMBC a 3-2 lead in the fourth inning. 

The Ohio native was one of two Retrievers with hits in both games in the tournament, the other being Maddie Daigneau (New River, Ariz.).

First seeded UAlbany won its second-consecutive conference title out of the losers bracket and will head to the Eugene Regional to play No.1 Oregon. Drake and BYU are the two other teams in the Regional.
