Chae Padron paces the squad with 19 RBI and sits third on the team with a .351 batting average. Cassandra Lagana gets on base 48% of the time and when she does, she is always a threat to steal as she has 13 stolen bases on the year to go along with her .426 batting average. Lagana helps her own cause as she is also the teams leading pitcher with a 6.76 ERA and 59.0 innings pitched.

The last loss the Dolphins suffered against the Bearcats at the CSI Softball Complex came on April 21, 2011. Overall, the Dolphins are 29-3 all-time against the Bearcats at home. Baruch has played well away from home this season, picking up eight of their 10 wins on the road.
