STORRS, Conn. – Andrea Plucenik (Brooklyn, Conn.) was tabbed as this week’s BIG EAST Rookie of the Week as announced by the conference office on Monday afternoon. The redshirt freshmen scored three goals in UConn’s 1-1 week. This marks the second consecutive week that a Husky has been honored by the league as senior Danielle Schulmann was last week’s Offensive Player of the Week.
Plucenik scored three goals in Connecticut’s 5-1 victory over St. John’s as she registered her first collegiate hat trick. The forward now is second on the team in points with nine on her four career goals and one assist.
The Huskies hit the road on Friday, September 21, as they travel to Georgetown for a 3 p.m. matchup and then head to Villanova at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
