Cambridge, Mass. - UAlbany freshman Inge Baijens was named the America East Conference Field Hockey Rookie of the Week, as announced by the league office on Monday afternoon.
Baijens earned her first weekly honor after helping the 20th-ranked Great Danes to a 7-1 victory over Fairfield in the America East opener on Oct. 3. She scored two goals, including the game-winning tally, in the victory. The forward scored the first goal of the game just 2:45 into play and netted her second goal in the late stages of the first half with an unassisted reverse-stick shot that sailed past the Fairfield goalkeeper to find the back of the cage. Baijens recorded three shots, all on goal, in two games against the Stags and No. 6 Syracuse.
