NEW YORK, N.Y. - Freshman forward Katie Martin (Dallas, Texas) has been named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week for her performances against Drexel, Maryland and Lehigh, as announced by the conference office on Monday afternoon. It marks the first conference honor of the forward's young career.
Martin scored a goal in each game of a 1-1-1 week for the Wildcats and netted a goal and an assist in a 4-2 loss to No. 17 Maryland. The freshman scored Villanova's only goal in a 1-1 double-overtime draw with Drexel and also notched a score in a 2-0 win against Lehigh on Sunday.
Martin has had an excellent start to her career in just four games with the Wildcats and currently leads the team with three goals and an assist for seven points.
Villanova will be back in action on Friday, Sept. 6th when they travel to James Madison in Harrisonburg, Va. Game time is slated for 7 p.m. The Wildcats will return home to West Campus Soccer Complex on Sunday, Sept. 8th at 1 p.m. when they host Richmond.
