Georgetown University senior softball player Samantha Giovanniello (Floral Park, N.Y./Floral Park Memorial) was named to the BIG EAST weekly Honor Roll after knocking in five RBI in the Hoyas' 6-4 win over St. John's on Friday. This is Giovanniello's second weekly conference honor and the third for Georgetown softball this season.
Giovanniello led the Hoyas with five RBI on the weekend, belting a grand slam to go along with a sacrifice fly. Her performance at the plated helped the Hoyas to their first BIG EAST victory of the season with a 6-4 win over St. John's. It was the first time since 2014 that Georgetown had beaten the Red Storm.
Giovanniello leads the team with a .382 batting average, including 24 runs and 29 hits. The senior also paces the Blue & Gray with a team-best six home runs and 26 RBI.
The Hoyas return to action on Saturday, April 2 when Georgetown visits DePaul. Live stats for the three-game series will be available at www.guhoyas.com.
