Pandolfi Collects Pair Of Weekly Honors
Sept. 16, 2013
AMHERST, Mass. - UMass women's soccer freshman forward Sarah Pandolfi has been named the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week and Co-UMass Athlete of the Week, it was announced on Monday. Pandolfi shares her UMass Athlete of the Week accolade with Brooke Sabia of the field hockey team.
Pandolfi and Sabia will be honored at the UMass Sports Luncheon this Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 12 p.m. on the First Floor Concourse at the Mullins Center. The weekly guest speakers will be UMass football head coach Charley Molnar and women's cross country head coach Julie LaFreniere.
Pandolfi becomes the second Minutewoman to take home A-10 Rookie of the Week recognition after redshirt Freshman Danielle Kriscenski earned the award one week ago.
This past Sunday, Pandolfi factored in both goals as UMass scored a come-from-behind double overtime victory over Lamar in Tomball, Texas, for her first three points of her collegiate carer. Pandolfi assisted on classmate Daniela Alvarez's goal in the 45th minute to tie the game at one and later notched the overtime game winner in the 150th minute.
On Friday at #20 Texas A&M, Pandolfi saw 13 minutes of action as a reserve. She has appeared in six of seven matches thus far this season.
UMass returns home this Thursday, Sept. 19, playing host to Brown at 4 p.m. on Rudd Field.
