CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – University of New Hampshire freshman goalkeeper Erica Correa (Cheshire, Conn.) was named America East Rookie of the Week for the week ending Aug. 29, the conference announced Monday.

Correa then made eight saves to preserve a 1-1 tie with Rider and help lead the Wildcats to their first TD Bank Classic title since 2001.
