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.
The rookie leads the Cardinal in goals with three as Stanford collects its second weekly honor of the year and Zanolli collects her first career honor.
