Hiram College

Members of the Hiram College softball team were honored today with a reception at Harbert House, home of Hiram College President Thomas V. Chema. The team finished the 2011 season 29-14 and captured the North Coast Athletic Conference Championship with an 11-3 league record. In doing so, the team qualified for the NCAA playoffs and advanced to the regional final, one game away from the NCAA Div. III World Series, before being eliminated.

“It was a great opportunity to celebrate the success of our softball program,” said Chema. “Coach Kristen Tassey has done a wonderful job in building our program and we’re proud to be among the elite in the NCAC each and every year.”
