The 19-year-old Hamilton native was a Salem News all-star her junior season at Bishop Fenwick after rebounding from a broken wrist. Curran had just two errors that season with .411 batting average, 22 runs scored and collected 12 RBI out of the No. 3 slot.
Curran wasn’t in the starting lineup yesterday; instead, Tufts head coach Cheryl Milligan opted for sophomore second baseman Gracie Marshall in the championship game. The Jumbos scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to erase a 5-3 deficit to take its third lead of the day. Sophomore pitcher Allyson Fournier then shut down Cortland in the sixth and seventh innings to close out the championship victory.
