Women’s Softball, it’s More Than A Game
Canisius Women’s Softball, despite many restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, persevered and succeeded on the field, in the classroom, and in the community.
Over the past year, our team had a successful season with an overall 22-14 record. In April and May 2021 Gianna Fazzolari, Destiny Falquez, and Megan Giese were all named Rookie of the Week by the MAAC. Kara Paradowski was nominated for the 2021 NCAA Woman of the Year Award. In addition, our student-athletes were one of nineteen Canisius athletic teams to achieve an average GPA over 3.0. We are proud of their continued dedication to not only their sport but also to their academic studies as well.
Despite busy schedules, our athletes got involved in a community outside of Canisius to help them become well-rounded leaders both on and off the field. This past year our Griffs donated their time throughout Buffalo to help better and expand upon the Jesuit values which we as an institution practice and encourage daily. One of the pillars of Canisius, the Jesuit community, as well as our softball program, is for our athletes to be women for and with others. Through all their hard work and dedication they are becoming strong Griffin Leaders and setting an example for teammates and classmates alike.
Your donation to Canisius Women’s Softball More Than A Game Campaign will help provide our student-athletes with new away uniforms. Your donation will also help us be able to travel to Florida for a training trip that will be essential in their game performance.
A huge part of our success as a team is made possible by the generosity of our donors over the past year. Your continued support allows our program to harvest an environment that encourages growth for our Griffs in the classroom, on the field, and within our community.
