This week’s female athlete of the week goes to Sierra DaCosta of the University of Hartford’s women’s basketball team. This comes after her performance in the America East semi-finals game against Stony Brook this past Sunday. During this game, which put the Hawks into the America East Finals, DaCosta scored the game-high 22 points making it the ninth straight time that she has scored double digits. This Pennsylvania native also had four steals as well as two rebounds during this game averaging 19.5 points for the week. The Junior also got seven steals and five rebounds for the week. It is no doubt why the Hawks are in the finals with players like DaCosta making the women’s basketball team the great program it is.
