News Release from UNCW:
WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW freshman keeper Carolyn Huddy was named the Colonial Athletic Association's Rookie-of-the-Week for the second week in a row on Monday.
Huddy becomes just the second league newcomer to earn the award on more than one occasion this season. She was also honored on Oct. 14 following her first career shutout against College of Charleston.
"Goalkeepers get the chance to keep you in games and Carolyn certainly did that this weekend," said UNCW Head Coach Paul Cairney. "Our other goalkeepers push each other in practice, so Liisa (Rahkola), Liz (Thompson) and Jordan (Brown), along with Coach (John) Adams, all share in this honor with Carolyn.
The Huntersville, N.C., product made 16 saves as she helped the Seahawks earn a split of its contests at James Madison and William & Mary last weekend.
Huddy opened the road swing by making nine saves in a 2-1 loss to the Dukes on Oct. 18 before recording seven saves in a 3-0 win over the league-leading Tribe on Sunday that gave the Seahawks their first victory over William & Mary in program history.
"In our JMU game, Carolyn made a few key saves to keep us in it and on Sunday at W&M she made at least two class saves to keep the Tribe off the board," said Cairney. "Carolyn was drafted into action just a few short weeks ago after Liisa's injury, so she deserves a lot of credit for how she has responded."
UNCW (8-8; 3-3 CAA) plays its final two games of the regular season this weekend as it hosts Drexel (Oct. 25) and Delaware (Oct. 27) at the UNCW Soccer Stadium. The Seahawks can clinch a spot in the upcoming CAA Women's Soccer Championship with a win or tie in either contest.
