Now, to the more familiar Tehmeena - THE SOFTBALL PLAYER
Tehmeena Afzal 2004
In 2002, Tehmeena appeared 16 times on the mound for the
Lady Bears. She posted a record of 6-8 woth an ERA of 3.51. She struck
out 37 batters in 95 innings. She batted .170 and played mostly shortstop
when not pitching. New York Tech finished third in the NYCAC with a record
of 15-7-0. The team's overall record was 22-27-2.
In 2003, Tehmeena switched from pitcher/shortstop to first base. She as joined at NYIT by Van Buren battery mate Annabelle Rodriguez, who transferred from Oneonta. The Lady Bears struggled terribly, finishing second to last in the NYCAC with a 3-21 record, 6-38 overall. Tehmeena batted .111 in 38 games (37 as a starter). Hopefully the team will have better luck next year!
In 2004 Tehmeena was able to return to the mound. She was 1-4 with a 6.20 ERA. Her final win as a pitcher was a 17-0 victory over Mercy College on April 8th in Dobbs Ferry, NY. At the plate she hit .154 in 19 games for the Bears. NYIT was a disappointing 12-26, 10-14 in the NYCAC (9th place).
After the season Tehmeena married her long-time sweetheart, Ernest, and in early 2005 she gave birth to a son, Jaiden Blake. Thank you, Tehmeena, for eight years of enjoyable softball!
