Athlete of the Week – Bianca Barone

Harlem senior softball player Bianca Barone is our WREX Athlete of the Week. She has the Lady Huskies off to a strong start to the season, thanks to her offensive and defensive abilities.

She’s on pace to break the all-time homerun record at Harlem, and that power is something she’s honed the past few years.

"I got comfortable with it my sophomore year," Barone said. "But without my teammates, I wouldn’t be where I am now."

That big bat draws praise from her coach.

"Offensively, she’s a difference maker," Harlem head coach Kurt Head said. "She makes everyone around her that much better."

Barone will suit up for NIU to play her college softball next year. But before that, she’s hoping for a big run through the playoffs for the Lady Huskies.
