Boarman completes three-city European softball tour
Recent graduate and Commonwealth Coast Conference pitcher of the year Kelsey Boarman ’17 enjoyed a 10-day, three-city European softball tour with American International Sports Teams (AIST).
Boarman brought her dominant pitching to Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam, as her team went 5-0 while she delivered shutout innings in all five games. She allowed just five base hits in her three starts and two relief appearances.
Former Seahawk pitching coach Siera Sheehan recommended Boarman, who had just completed her final season with back-to-back conference championships and NCAA regionals appearances. Sheehan had enjoyed a similar experience after graduating from the University of Hartford.
Since 2002, AIST has been traveling the world with select players from across the country to compete in a variety of sports. The selection process is based on recommendations from coaches as well as statistical leaders from around the nation at all levels of college play.
In addition to her flawless pitching, Boarman got to bat during the game in Paris and collected a hit. She finished her Salve Regina career with a perfect 1.000 batting average (1-for-1).
