Alyssa Viscardo is the Informer female athlete of the week.

Viscardo is another breakout candidate.

She is a freshman who has so far seen only relief work this season.

However, after her performance against Manhattan, she may start to see more action possibly as a starter.

Viscardo has struggled so far this season with a 1-3 record and an 8.50 ERA before her performance against Manhattan.

In 4 innings pitched Viscardo allowed only 3 hits and no runs to go along with 2 K’s.

Viscardo was named the America East rookie of the week for this performance and looks to factor in the hawk’s plans for a playoff run this year.

Look for Viscardo to see more and more innings on the mound as the freshman adjusts to the speed and talent of the game at this level.

She has earned herself a spot here as the Informer female athlete of the week and looks poised to breakout in her rookie season.
