WOMEN'S PLAYER OF THE WEEK
UConn's Rachel Hill
University of Connecticut freshman forward Rachel Hill has been named the New England Soccer News Women's College Player of the Week for the week ending September 1.
Hill had a spectacular week where she notched her first collegiate goals, netting the game-winners in both of Connecticut's victories. The Somersworth, N.H. native, who is tied for most points on the squad with five points, was also named American Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week.
In a 1-0 victory over Boston College Wednesday night, Hill scored her first collegiate goal. Her shot from 25 yards out found the opposite corner of the net in the 52nd minute.
In a 3-0 win over Central Connecticut Sunday afternoon, Hill scored the game's first goal in the fourth minute, tapping the ball in from inside the box.
