Charlotte 49ers softball player Sarah Malene, a three-time All-Atlantic 10 selection, recently helped the Virginia Legends win their third consecutive Under-23 ASA national tournament in Auburn, Ala. The Legends went 7-2 in the tournament, coming from the loser's bracket to win the championship.
"It was a great experience playing with and against a bunch of great college players," Malene said. "Playing in this tournament and winning the national title is something that I will remember for the rest of my life."
Malene started all nine games for the Legends at second base, where she plays for the 49ers. She had four hits, two doubles, three RBIs and scored four runs during the tournament.
