In 2009, Luckie and London led their program to their first ever NEC Championship, earning a spot in the NCAA Tournament at the Division-1 level. They then went on to further Pioneer history in earning the school’s first win in any sport at a D-1 NCAA tournament with a 3-1 win over Cornell

Bippy and Pam anchored the middle infield for Sacred Heart in 1984 and 1985 and lead their team to an 89-12 record, which was highlighted by back to back appearances in the D-2 final four.

As teammates for two seasons, 1984 and 1985, London and Luckie anchored the middle of the Pioneers infield, leading those teams to a sparkling 89-12 record, which was highlighted by back-to-back trips to the Division II Final Four.

London was a three-year starter at second base from 1984-86 and appeared in two NCAA Division II Final Fours. As a senior tri-captain, London was named to the All-NECC Team.
