BOSTON - Katie White (Glens Falls, N.Y.), a freshman midfielder on the University of New Hampshire field hockey team, was named Rookie of the Week by America East on Monday.
White scored a career-high two goals in UNH's 13-1 victory against the University at Albany last Sunday. Her offensive production helped the Wildcats set school records for both goals in a game and widest margin of victory. She was one of four 'Cats to score at least two goals in a game, which marked the first time in 28 years that happened.
White tallied consecutive unassisted goals 2:45 apart - at 12:22 and 15:07 - to increase the Wildcat lead from 4-0 to 6-0. The pair of goals increased her rookie season totals to three goals for six points. She recorded her first career points with a goal in UNH's 5-3 victory at Rhode Island on Sept. 21.
New Hampshire (9-4 overall, 2-0 America East) returns to action Oct. 16 (7 p.m.) at UMass. The Wildcats conclude their home slate this weekend with games against Boston University (Oct. 18, 3:30 p.m.) and Harvard University (Oct. 20; 1 p.m.).
