This week’s WQAQ Athlete of the Week is Katie Allendorfer, junior co-captain of the Quinnipiac softball team. With the help of two home runs, Allendorfer drove in a team-high five RBIs in a 7-3 victory over Holy Cross in the Stony Brook Invitational last weekend.
Her first RBI came in the first inning on a single down the left field line. In her second at-bat, Allendorfer put one over the fence to give the Bobcats a 3-0 lead.
Allendorfer came to the plate once more in the fifth. She would also send this one out of the yard, except this time with two runners on giving her RBIs three, four and five on the day.
The catcher’s presence was also felt on the field when she snapped a throw down to third, picking off Mandy Correale to end the game.
