Release: April 5, 2010
CAMBRIDGE, MASS. -- Junior Stephanie DeLuca has been named the America East softball Player of the Week for the week ending April 4, the conference announced on Monday.
DeLuca provided clutch hitting all week in leading BU to a 4-1 record. DeLuca batted .533 (8-for-15), hit two doubles, a home run and had seven RBI. DeLuca also had an on-base percentage of .588 and slugged .867.
Her week was highlighted by going 3-for-4 with four RBI in BU's 10-5 win over UMBC. In that game DeLuca hit an RBI double, an RBI single, and a two-run home run in her first three at-bats. Earlier in the week DeLuca was 2-for-3 with both of the team's two RBI in BU's 2-1 win over Siena. DeLuca also registered a hit in all five games on the week.
The three weekly awards is the most ever in a season for Binghamton since joining the America East in 2002. Also, DeLuca becomes the only the second Bearcat (along with Rose Barre in 2004) to earn player of the week honors.
The Bearcats (15-8, 3-3 AE) will play a three-game set at conference-foe Maine this weekend.
