White to Enter Connecticut Scholastic and Collegiate Softball Hall of Fame

Sacred Heart alum and current assistant softball coach Vicky White will be inducted into the Connecticut Scholastic and Collegiate Softball Hall of Fame on March 13.  White graduated from SHU in 1997 after a four year playing career in which she compiled 49 wins and received All-NECC postseason honors on three occasions.  The induction ceremony will be held March 13 at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville with the social hour beginning at 4:00 pm.

White's best season came in 1995 as the then sophomore hurler notched a 20-8 record along with a 1.83 ERA.  In that same year the Pioneers claimed the New England Collegiate Conference championship and went on to the NCAA Regionals.  White was named to the All-NECC first team in 1995 and earned second team accolades in 1994 and 1997.  White still ranks fourth in the SHU record book for career wins (49) and innings pitched (515.2). 

White worked for 12 years as a teacher in the Bridgeport school system, during that time she taught 1st-3rd grades.  Recently, White moved into the administrative position of Evaluation Staff Mediator.

White enters her 14th season as an assistant and pitching coach for the Sacred Heart softball team.  During that time the Pioneers captured a Northeast Conference tournament crown in 2009 and have had a pitcher named to an All-NEC team on three occasions.

White will enter the Connecticut Scholastic and Collegiate Hall of Fame with high school players Loriann Andrews and Carol Frattaroli, college player Carolyn Bell, high school coach Rosemary Sullivan, and umpire John Zadnik.
