Freshman Leah Robinson was a force on the mound for the Gators, recording over 100 strikeouts for the team. Offensively she led the team in several categories including home runs and batting average. She even hit a grand slam! Leah was named to the All-Conference team this year, which is a first in the past four years for Saint Gertrude.
