Alverno College softball student-athlete Ashlie Rossi has been named Alverno Athlete of the Week for events of March 6-12.
Rossi led the Inferno both offensively and defensively at the Gene Cusic Collegiate Classic. The junior right-hander threw a pair of shutouts in the circle and led the team with a .385 batting average last week.
She allowed just three hits and no walks in a 4-0 victory over Bridgewater State University Wednesday and tossed a one-hit gem in a 1-0 win against Pitt-Bradford Saturday. She had a 2.18 ERA overall, but her ERA was 0.80 in her five starts with a 3-2 record as a starter.
Offensively, Rossi had three doubles, seven RBIs, and became the 11th player in school history to amass 100-career hits.
