Empire 8 names AU’s Delgado softball Player of the Week

ALFRED, NY - Breeal Delgado (Rancho Cucamonga, CA/Los Osos), a sophomore centerfielder for the Alfred University softball team, has been named Empire 8 Conference Player of the Week.

Delgado was honored for her play last week, when the Saxons went unbeaten in six non-conference contests, sweeping home doubleheaders from Medaille, Houghton and Cazenovia. She batted .542 (13-for-24), totaling 11 runs scored, six doubles, a home run, and 15 runs batted in. She doubled in each game, and scored and drove in at least one run in all six contests. Delgado drove in seven runs, the second-most in a game in school history, in a win over Houghton in the first game of a doubleheader on Wednesday.

For the year, Delgado is batting .416 with 19 runs scored and a team-leading 31 RBIs. She is tied for the team lead in doubles (10) and total bases (50) and is slugging .649.

AU (20-8, 3-1 Empire 8) is in action next on Wednesday, April 18, when the Saxons travel to Rochester for a 3 p.m. doubleheader at RIT.
