What is she known for? Maldonado three times earned all-conference honors in the Big East conference and was twice honored as an all-region team member, including as part of the Great Lakes all-region first team in 2011, her junior season. 

Here's something interesting... In Alexa’s words… “I have a secret nerdy obsession with The Legend of Zelda video game series. It’s hard to find the time to play now, but in another life, I am an AVID gamer.”

Quotable quote: "Looking back at all the blood, sweat, and tears that I put into this game, I can easily say that I don’t regret any of it. Sometimes the game gets the best of you. After all, it is a game of failure."

What's she up to now? After her collegiate career ended, Alexa spent two seasons on the USA Women’s National Baseball Team. She currently works for EastPoint Sports, an international home rec & game product designer and retail supplier and has spent time in China working at the company’s office in Shanghai!
