Walker Earns Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team Honors

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – St. Bonaventure University softball freshman Grace Walker has been selected to the Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team, conference officials announced Thursday.

Walker, a native of Caledonia, N.Y., played in 21 games in her first season with the Bonnies and started 19 of those contests. Walker led the Bonnies and was among the top 20 in Atlantic 10 batting average, hitting .352 on the year with six doubles and six RBIs.

The freshman infielder also led the Brown and White in on-base percentage (.463), slugging percentage (.462), runs scored (11) and walks (10).

In early April, Walker earned Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week honors after slashing .714/.833/1.132 in a four-game series against George Mason.

Walker is the first Bonnies player to earn All-Rookie Team honors since Grace Perechinsky was selected in 2018.
