Roy-Hart senior Reanna Perkins, the Niagara-Orleans softball player of the year last spring, has committed to play at St. Bonaventure, she announced on social media.
Perkins, who also plays for the Amherst Lightning travel team and Lou Gehrig, is coming off a junior season in which she set the school record for strikeouts in a season with 146, averaging about 12 per game, and had an earned run average of 0.939. She also hit near .500.
I am so excited to announce my commitment to play division 1 softball and further my education at St. Bonaventure University! I’d like to thank my parents, coaches, and everyone that has supported me along the way. Go Bonnies!!! 🤎🤍 @BonniesSoftball pic.twitter.com/NQPzJDdbEB— Reanna Perkins (@ReannaPerkins02) September 8, 2021
“I had been looking at colleges with offers from all divisions,” she said. “I selected St. Bonaventure because I loved the campus, the environment, Coach (Mike) Threehouse, his softball program and they had my behavioral neuroscience/physician assistant programming I was looking for.”
She has been a starter in softball for five years and also has been the goaltender for the soccer team.
