EMPIRE’s Newest Collegiate Athletes


October 2022 – Empire Fastpitch’s newest collegiate athletes Isabella Wren and Emma Capozucca took to the field this month in their first NCAA softball games.

     Isabella played her first collegiate game with the nationally ranked Manhattanville Valiant’s in a double header that saw them face off against the Fairfield University Stags & the Yale Bulldogs (NCAA D1). Bella made her debut in the outfiled and went 1-3 with a single and the only RBI of the game. Bella is a Criminal Justice Major and there are definitely great things ahead for her both on and off the diamond.

     Emma played her first double header as well for the Mount Saint Vincent Dolphins, getting the start at first base against the Monroe Mustangs. She played the entire game at first and went 0-1 with a sacrifice and 2 walks. In the night cap she once again took over the duties at first base in the third inning against the Monroe Express. In the last inning Emma helped complete a beautifully executed 1-3-2 double play to end the game and take the win against the Express. Emma is a Nursing major.

     Both young ladies are looking forward to the Spring when their teams can get back on the field for the 2023 season. Bella’s Valiant’s will be travelling to California for their spring pre-season games and the Dolphins will be playing their spring warmups in South Carolina. Both the Valiant’s and the Dolphins compete in the NCAA DIII Skyline Conference.
