Hill Claims BIG EAST Rookie of the Week Honor
Feb. 24, 2015
NEW YORK – Marquette University freshman attacker Riley Hill has been named BIG EAST Conference Rookie of the Week after registering two goals against No. 5/5 Northwestern on Saturday, the league office announced Tuesday.
The West Islip, New York native made the most of her first collegiate start for the Golden Eagles, scoring two second-half goals as Marquette attempted to climb back against the nationally-ranked Wildcats in the home opener at Valley Fields.
The true freshman collected her first career score with 11:03 left in the contest and tallied one more with 17 seconds remaining in regulation. Hill proved very efficient on the day, capitalizing on both shots she took, while also recording a caused turnover.
The Golden Eagles will return to action this Saturday, Feb. 28, with a non-conference road tilt against host Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. First draw is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Central time.
