LWSN highlights a local native that plays at the collegiate level every Monday. If you have a suggestion on a female athlete to highlight , send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This week’s feature is on former Assumption softball star Alyssa Tarquinio.
Tarquinio made her mark in the field during her time at the University of St. Louis by being a very reputable fielder.
She had a .988 fielding percentage, tops on the team, and has made a team high 392 putouts, the next closest has only made 243 putouts.
Tarquinio only made five errors which is remarkable because of the amount of putouts she has made her senior season.
At the plate, the former Rocket hit .235 with three home runs and 17 runs batted in and had four doubles.
Her collegiate career has come to an end. The Billikens finished 28-29 this year, 11-10 in the Atlantic 10.
