Cardinal corner: Zanolli earns field hockey weekly honor


Corinne Zanolli has been named the America East Field Hockey Rookie of the Week for her standout play in a sweep of ranked opponents over the weekend, as announced by the conference Wednesday.

The freshman attacker was integral to the Cardinal offense over the weekend, including a career-best two goals against No. 17 Iowa including the game-winner in the 68th minute. Zanolli added another goal against UMass while compiling nine shots on the weekend, six on target for a .667 shots on goal percentage.
