Starzyk Selected as ECAC Women’s East Rookie of the Week

CENTERVILLE, MASS. – Freshman Alexandra Starzyk (Enfield, Conn.) collected ECAC Women's East Rookie of the Week honors the conference announced Monday evening, for the period ending Nov. 3.

In her career debut, Starzyk potted a pair of game-winning goals as Saint Anselm went 2-0 taking down both UMass Boston, 2-1, and Sacred Heart, 4-3, in overtime. With the game tied 3-3 against Sacred Heart, she picked up the rebound off a saved shot as she was dangling outside the crease and sent the puck top-shelf on the Pioneer netminder, just 29 seconds into overtime. She was the only Hawk to score two goals, including one power-play goal on the weekend.   

Starzyk and the rest of the Hawks return to action Saturday, Nov. 9 when they travel to Neumann University for a 7:30 p.m. puck drop.
