The Time Warner Cable Sports Channel GoBonnies.com Female Athlete of the Week for the week ending May 1 is softball senior Emily McDonough.

McDonough broke St. Bonaventure’s all-time season hits record on Sunday vs. Rhode Island with her 61st hit of the spring. She helped the Bonnies to a three-game sweep of Rhode Island in Atlantic 10 play by going 6-for-10 with four stolen bases and a pair of RBIs in the series, lifting her batting average to .424 for the season.

She broke the old record of 60 hits in a season that had stood since Jen Bovee set the mark in 1999. She currently stands second in the Atlantic 10 in batting average this season behind only teammate Kelli Rohan.
