The Pioneers begin New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) competition on Saturday, March 26 as the Beavers of Babson College come to Northampton. Westfield State, Amherst, and Williams round out the out of conference schedule for Smith.

"We are driven by a talented senior class full of leadership and experience," said Lopez. "Our juniors stepped up big in the fall with their presence on and off the field"

"The sophomores are eager to get going and their energy has been contagious. Our first years are an exciting class and they are eager to contribute." - Coach Lopez

Senior captain Ally Snyder was an All-Conference Second Team selection in 2016. The outfielder led the Pioneers, batting .365 with 38 hits, nine doubles, four triples, eight home runs and 29 RBI. She set new school records for home runs in a season (8) and home runs in a career (15).
"We just missed the NEWMAC postseason tournament last year and have our sights set on getting back there and making noise in the conference." Coach Lopez
The Pioneers will face seven teams who qualified for the NCAA Tournament in 2016. Those teams include: Becker, Salve Regina, Washington University St. Louis, Western Connecticut State, MIT, WPI, and Williams. "This is a special group and I look forward to seeing where the 2017 journey takes us!" -Coach Lopez
