Walker Earns A-10 Rookie Of The Week Honors

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – St. Bonaventure University softball freshman Grace Walker has earned Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week honors, conference officials announced Tuesday.

In a four-game series at Joyce Field against George Mason, Walker slashed .714/.833/1.132 for the Bonnies in their first home series since May 2019.

During game one of Friday's doubleheader, the freshman infielder entered in the bottom of the seventh as a pinch hitter with the bases loaded and belted a bases-clearing double. Walker followed that performance by working three walks in game two Friday afternoon.

Walker's weekend continued Saturday when she went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in game one and was 1-for-2 with another double in game two while also earning a pair of walks.

On the year, Walker is batting .571 in seven games played. Walker also leads the Bonnies with four doubles.

The Bonnies are back in action Saturday, April 10 on the road at Fordham.
