WORCESTER, Mass. - Sophomore third baseman Alex Gustafson (Medford, Mass.) has been named the AT&T Crusader of the Week, for competition from April 9-15. Gustafson went 6-for-16 with a home run, two doubles, three runs scored and three runs batted in last week, as the Holy Cross softball team posted a 3-3 record in six games.
Gustafson had a pair of big games during Thursday's doubleheader sweep on Hartford, going 3-for-3 with a homer and two runs scored in the opener, before hitting an RBI double and scoring a run in the night cap. She added two more hits during the weekend series with Lehigh, including a key RBI single in the series finale, to tie the game at 1-1 with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning as the Crusaders rallied for a 2-1 victory.
On the season, Gustafson is now batting .286 with three doubles, two home runs, seven runs batted in and nine runs scored. Over the course of her Holy Cross career, she owns a .248 batting average with 10 doubles, six home runs, 22 runs batted in and 28 runs scored.
Holy Cross (7-25 overall, 2-10 Patriot League) returns to action on Tuesday, April 17, when it plays host to Siena in a doubleheader beginning at 3:00 p.m.
