July 13, 2009

Fairfield, CT - Sacred Heart incoming freshman Nicole Sidor helped her team to a runner-up finish in the Futures Division of the Canada Cup softball tournament last week. Sidor's team, the White Rock Renegades, went 9-2 in the tournament, finishing first in its pool. The Renegades advanced all the way to the championship game before being eliminated.

On Monday, July 6, Sidor faced the Utah Storm in a preliminary round game. In a mercy-rule shortened 7-0 Renegades win Sidor was responsible for making every single out, striking out a staggering 15 batters in five innings.

Sidor, a native of Vancouver, signed a National Letter of Intent to play for Sacred Heart last winter. In addition to her impressive pitching arsenal she is also a solid hitter and outfielder as well.

The Canada Cup was started by Chairman, Glen Todd in 1993 as an international women's fastpitch developmental tournament. Many teams now regard the Canada Cup as one of the best competitive tournaments in the world and instrumental as they prepare for the World Championships. The competition also includes a Futures Tournament as well as a Showcase Event.
