Eastern Softball Goes to Europe

"We had a tremendous experience playing softball with other collegiate players," said Pepin.  "The trip included visiting a concentration camp in Munich, Germany; seeing the Olympic Stadium; and visiting the world's largest castle in Prague."

Rathbun was dominant on the field, posting an .067 ERA on the pitching mound, and striking out 34 batters in 24 innings, yielding only 12 hits. When she wasn't pitching, she was the designated player and batted an impressive .532.
