CASTERA, ITALY, Iona College softball graduate RHP Sarah Jackson has earned a spot on the roster of Italian softball powerhouse Des Casterta following a three day tryout last week.

After last week's tryout in which the attendees took part in scrimmages, Jackson was named to the team in time to compete at the European Cup.  Due to a rule allowing rosters to expand, Jackson was able to join an otherwise already set roster.  The European Cup is a tournament to claim the right to be called Europe's top softball team with Des Casterta getting an automatic berth by way of its Italian Cup a year ago. The team is currently ranked number one in the country and will look to claimed another Italian Cup in a few weeks.

Jackson, a two-time MAAC Pitcher of the Year and a three time All-MAAC First Team honoree, finished her career with a program record 62 wins and is Iona softball's all-time leader in strikeouts, games started, games pitched, innings pitched, shutouts and strikeout ratio.  She led the Gaels to three consecutive MAAC Championships and three straight NCAA Regional appearances.
