OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Villanova -- Fr., M
(Vienna, Va./Paul VI)
Rocap is the first Villanova student-athlete to win Offensive Player of the Week in the Patriot League this season. The senior midfielder from Vienna, Va., scored seven goals on the week, including four in a 9-8 win at Bucknell that snapped the Wildcats' 26-game losing streak dating back to last season. She also scooped up three groundballs. Rocap now has 19 goals on the season to go along with three assists.
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Holy Cross -- So., GK
Orr earns her first Defensive Player of the Week award of what is turning out to be a fine season for the sophomore goalkeeper from Wilton, Conn. Orr led Holy Cross to wins over Vermont and American last week, upping the Crusaders' record to 8-5 overall, and 4-1 in the PL. She registered 18 saves for the week while posting a .545 save percentage. Her 7.49 goals-against average leads the League.
ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Holy Cross -- Fr., A
Holy Cross has now won four of the six Rookie of the Week awards this season, but this represents the first in Corkum's career. The freshman attack from Ipswich, Mass., totaled five goals, one assist and two groundballs during a 2-0 week for the Crusaders that saw an 11-6 victory over Vermont and a 12-9 win versus American. Corkum came off the bench in both contests, notching a hat trick in HC's upset of the Eagles.
