2018: Earned her second All-NACC honor being named to the first team after a good year at the heart of the Sabre order.  Esposito was a consistent source of offense for the Sabres as she led the squad and ranked eighth in the NACC with 35 runs driven in on the season.  She also excelled in situational hitting ranking ninth in the conference in sacrifice flies.  The Bolingbrook, Ill. native was held hitless in only seven of the 39 games she started with 12 multi-hit games.  She also had 10 games during the year where she drove in multiple runs in one game including a pair of four-RBI games.  Esposito set a season-high for herself launching four home runs during the season and also proved to be a threat defensively for the Sabres recording 11 assists from left field.  She also closed out the year ranked second on the team with 30 runs scored on the season.

2017: Played in all 43 games for the Sabres. Earned a spot on the All-NACC Second Team and All-Freshman team. Led the Sabres with two home runs on the year and a .507 slugging percentage.
