Nyack, NY - The Nyack College athletic department continues its "Senior Salute" series recognizing all the spring seniors throughout the remainder of the semester. Next up is softball senior Alyssa Giampolo. Giampolo joined the Warriors in 2018-19 and spent her first two collegiate years at CACC rivals Goldey-Beacom. The pitcher made an immediate impact on the Warriors pitching 194.0 innings and recording 13 wins on the season, which ranked her 7th in the CACC. She posted a season ERA of 3.54 with 2.71 strikeouts per seven innings. In the five appearances on the mount in 2019-20 Giampolo posted 2.66 ERA striking out 3.38 batters per seven innings.
Giampolo also contributed on the hitting side with a .225 hitting average,resulting in 25 hits including seven doubles. In her nine games in Florida this season she averaged .296 with eight hits, including one double.
Softball head coach Jeff Aumend said about Alyssa, "Alyssa G is a fierce competitor, not only in softball but also in life. Her life testimony about overcoming some of the things college students dabble into, is a testimony to God being in control, in these difficult times. God brought her here for a reason. Certainly, softball was one of those, leading her team to the best finish in the conference, in many, many years for Nyack. But there are other reasons, as she prepares to be an excellent counselor professionally."
As with all seniors before we asked Alyssa a few questions in regards to the abrupt season ending and her future plans.
