In the second leg of KSC’s double-header vs. RIC, Burgio was once again in the zone, batting two for three with an RBI, two walks, and scoring one run himself.
He helped the Owls to a 13-8 victory, sweeping RIC at Owl Athletic Complex.
Burgio finished the week going one for three vs. Babson College.
The senior was one of KSC’s few positive performances in the 15-3 loss batting and one run for KSC and making it home himself to score another.
The second runner-up this week is KSC men’s lacrosse senior captain Matt Schairer.
