Sammi Allendorfer

WQAQ Sports has named softball’s Sammi Allendorfer as its Athlete of the Week for the week ending on April 25, 2007.

The senior from Glenside, PA made sure the 4 player senior class would go out with a bang at Bobcat Field. She slammed three home runs on senior day to power the Bobcats to a sweep of St. Francis (PA) on Sunday.

She hit her first homer in the bottom of the 6th inning of game 1. At the time, the Bobcats trailed 2-1, but Sammi’s two-run home run gave the Bobcats a 3-2 lead they would not relinquish.

Her second home run of the day came in game 2. In the bottom of the first inning, Allendorfer slammed the ball over the fence in center field for her 2nd two-run home run of the day. Allendorfer ended the day 4-6 with 5 RBI and 3 runs scored. Game two ended in 5 innings thanks to the mercy rule after the Bobcats scored 10 runs in the first three innings to win the game 10-0.

The Quinnipiac softball team is back in action tomorrow for a Northeast Conference doubleheader at top-ranked LIU before facing off against league rival Sacred Heart on Saturday. The team is currently 4th in the league standings, 1 game above Robert Morris and the Pioneers of Sacred Heart. Only 4 teams will make the conference tournament, scheduled for May 12 and 13 at the highest seed.
