RALEIGH, NC - The Fayetteville State Lady Broncos have played one of the most difficult schedules in the nation. And they've paid for it. Now, though, it may be paying off. The Lady Broncos, behind the strong pitching of Rebecca Polashek and Tia Caldwell, and balance throughout the lineup, began CIAA league play at the CIAA Roundup on Friday, showing that they may still be a team to be reckoned with in the conference standings.
