Sophomore Elyse Graziano has gone eleven-for-14 on steal attempts this season.

April 24, 2012

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University softball team (19-27, 3-10 BIG EAST) will close out a five-game homestand with a doubleheader against Villanova (28-20, 2-12 BIG EAST) on Wednesday at Guy Mason Field. First pitch is scheduled for 2 p.m.

The Hoyas went 2-1 last week with a win over Towson on Thursday; Georgetown split a doubleheader with Providence (15-29, 5-9 BIG EAST) on Saturday. The final game of the three-game series with the Friars was rained out on Sunday.

Cara Savarese (Syosset, N.Y./Syosset) was named to the BIG EAST Softball Honor Roll on Monday for her performance over the weekend. In the 3-1 win over Towson on Thursday, Savarese hit a double with the score tied 1-1 in the eighth inning to send the go-ahead run home. Savarese went three-for-three in the 2-0 win over the Providence Friars in the second game of a doubleheader on Saturday.

The Blue & Gray is currently ranked eleventh in the conference, with the Wildcats in the twelve spot.

Elyse Graziano (Floral Park, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) leads the Hoyas in batting average against BIG EAST opponents, batting .310 over 13 conference games. The sophomore outfielder has stolen eleven bases in 14 attempts during 2012. Hannah Slovacek (Austin, Texas/Westlake) is currently on a five-game hitting streak, as is Cara Savarese.

Shikara Lowe (Beaverton, Ore./Jesuit) has been walked 25 times in 46 at bats to rank second in walks in the BIG EAST this season. Lowe’s pitching selection has also helped her rank third in on base percentage in the conference.

VILLANOVA: The Wildcats avoided a series sweep against St. John’s last weekend, taking one game of the three-game series. Five Villanova batters are currently hitting .300 or better. Jamie O’Hara leads Villanova batting .372.

The Hoyas will honor the four-year careers of seniors Mackensey Carter (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) and Cara Savarese before first pitch at Guy Mason Field. Carter and Savarese represent the first class of Georgetown softball to play all four years of their careers competing in the BIG EAST Conference.
