Geneva College Athletes of the week for the week of May 3-8, 2010:
Leanne Abate - Softball
Leanne Abate has been selected as the female student-athlete of the week. In Geneva′s final doubleheader of the season last Monday against Thiel, Abate went 4-8 and hit one of the most dramatic home runs in recent history. In a game Geneva had to win for post-season hopes, Abate clubbed a two-out, three-run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning to tie the game and send it to extra innings. It was the second game tying home run in the seventh inning this season for Abate.
