SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – The Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) has released the results of its pre-season coaches' polls for the Spring 2013 season. Listed below are the rankings for each of Curry College's five spring teams, along with a preview featuring each team's key returning players.

BASEBALL: 4th of 9

Curry College (18-24, 12-4) head coach Dave Perdios retired after the 2010 season after 12 years at the helm. He is now back for his 13th season after a two-year hiatus. The Colonels will be led by a pair of seniors, both of whom earned 2012 All-CCC honors. They include first-team OF Sam Barron (.342, 3 HR, 19 RBI, 13-19 SB-SBA) and second-team C Matt Rodriguez (.264, 5 HR, 29 RBI). Curry’s pitching staff will once again be anchored by sophomore starter Thomas Fitzpatrick (4-2, 3.13 ERA, 54.2 IP).

SOFTBALL: 6th of 10

Curry College (20-20, 8-10) head coach Bruce Weckworth embarks on his 18th season at the helm in 2013. Offensively, the Colonels will be led by senior shortstop Amanda Felzmann (.301, 16 RS, 7 RBI), and junior third base Megan Flaherty (.287, 29 RS, 12 RBI). Curry will rely heavily on its top two starting pitchers, both of whom enjoyed outstanding 2012 campaigns. Sophomore Taylor Ahearn was 10-8 with a 1.70 ERA in 111 innings pitched, while junior Jennifer Lundstrom went 5-6 with a 2.73 ERA in 74.1 innings pitched.

MEN'S LACROSSE: 6th of 9

Curry College (10-8, 2-5) first year head coach Tim Murphy will lean on the experience of his defense with a number of upperclassmen returning on that side of the ball. The offense will be young and untested but a few key early season games, before the conference schedule begins, will hopefully help that group mature quickly.

WOMEN'S LACROSSE: 7th of 9

The Curry College (7-10, 0-7) women’s lacrosse team has high expectations for the 2013 season. The Colonels are looking to rebound from their 2012 season and get back to being one of the top teams in the CCC. Head Coach Caitlin Roberts’ 2013 squad includes 12 returners and 11 newcomers. On defense they return junior Mel Brickey, a Second Team All-CCC player. On attack, senior co-captain Ana Bottary, a second team selection, is back to lead her team offensively. Newcomers who should make an immediate impact are freshmen Emma Bolton and Alexis Cran.
