This week’s Female Athlete of the Week is sophomore Alexandra Piergustavo of the St. Bonaventure softball team.

In the team’s seven games from March 7-12, the Milford, Mass. native went 10-for-21 with nine RBI, three doubles and a home run.

Piergustavo was a high-volume run producer for the Bonnies as her nine RBIs came in sums of three each, including a three-run home run against Cleveland State on Sunday that helped St. Bonaventure break open the game and eventually win, 6-1.

In the Bonnies’ first 18 games, Piergustavo leads the team in RBIs (13), doubles (four), home runs (two), slugging percentage (.512) and extra-base hits (six).

Up next, the Bonnies will head to Wilmington, N.C. for five games against Georgetown, UMass-Lowell and host UNC Wilmington from March 17-19.
