She moved to San Marino in 2010, playing for three years there and qualifying for two European Cups and winning an Under-21 Italian Championship. During her time at San Marino, she was also a member of the Italian team which won the Under-19 European Championship.
In 2013 Alice moved to top team Caserta, coming third in the league and in the European Cup. A year later she switched to Bussolengo, having her best ever season, reaching the final championship series and receiving the Gold Glove Award as pitcher.
