Finizio Picks Up Another Honor

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Susquehanna softball senior Lisa Finizio (Oakland, N.J./Indian Hills) picked up another accolade on Monday as the outfielder was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Assocation (NFCA) East Region First-Team. Finizio was one of only two Landmark Conference athletes named to the First Team.

Finizio recently capped off a historic career as she was named the Landmark Conference Player of the Year, a CoSIDA Regional All-American and received SU’s prestigious Harnum Award, given to the senior female student-athlete who best represents the ideals of intercollegiate athletics.

Finizio started 39 games this spring and finished with team-highs in hits (55), runs (32) and stolen bases (14). Her 55 hits were sixth all-time in single season history. She also added five triples, one home run and 21 RBIs.

For her career, she leaves SU as the all-time leader in at-bats, total bases and hits and is second all-time in triples.

This spring, the Crusaders earned the No. seed in the Landmark Conference for the first time in program history and advanced to the championship game.
