Female Athlete of the Week: Danielle Rocheleau

Justin Lockhart, Sports Editor

This week’s female athlete of the week award goes to Danielle Rocheleau of the University of Hartford’s softball team. With this sophomore leading the team in almost every offensive category including batting average with .486, home runs with 4, RBIs with 22, and hits with 35, it is no wonder she was able to pace the Hawks to gain their first America East win in nearly three years. This also marked to first America East win for the head coach of the University’s softball team, Angie Churchill. This Massachusetts native was also able to bring back a home run, seven RBIs, a triple, two doubles, and six runs during the last seven games in which she started. Clearly having some impressive stats, Rocheleau will continue to help the Hawks rack in more victories as the season progresses.
