Emma Lee ’19 solidified her name in Providence College history this past weekend in an away series against Big East rivals Villanova University. The right fielder for the PC Softball Team broke the program’s all-time hit record with her 215th career hit.

During the first of two games that would take place on April 6, Lee notched a team-high three hits in the 2-1 win over the Wildcats. The team was unable to continue that momentum going into the second game of the day as they fell 4-0 and into the next day as they would lose the series against Villanova in a 6-0 loss.

Despite the unfavorable outcome, Lee had a very successful series. She concluded the weekend with a .556 batting average and 1.000 slugging percentage. Lee also hit two impressive doubles and a triple. Due to her success over the weekend, Lee was named to the Big East Weekly Honor Roll.

Heading into her final games as a Friar, Lee said that her personal goal for the season is to “just have fun playing the game I love with all of my teammates besides me. These four years have gone by so fast and I would like to take advantage of every second.”
