Hurricanes Alumni, Danielle DeStaso named to the Big East Weekly Honor Roll.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Seton Hall softball freshman Danielle DeStaso (Congers, N.Y.) was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending on February 19. DeStaso hit a team-best .556 with two home runs, and five RBI in a 1-2 week for the Pirates at the Lancer Leadoff Tournament.
