University of Albany's Christina Patrick & Corrine McConville Earn America East Weekly Field Hockey Awards - UAlbany Sports 2010

Cambridge, Mass. - University at Albany's Christina Patrick and Corrine McConville were named the America East Conference Field Hockey Player and Rookie of the Week, respectively, as announced by the league office on Monday afternoon. It is the first weekly award for both players.

Patrick, who leads the Great Danes in goals with eight and points with 19, led UAlbany to three straight wins last week. She scored at least one goal in each game, finishing with four tallies and one assist on 14 shots. Patrick scored two goals in a 6-1 road win over Saint Louis and finished with one goal and one assist in a shutout win over Bryant at home. She wrapped up the week with the lone goal needed to defeat Massachusetts on the road, finding the back of the cage on a tough-angle shot in the 53rd minute.

McConville scored three goals in three games on a team-high 18 shots. She scored once in the victory at Saint Louis and notched two goals, including the game-winner, in the 3-0 win over Bryant. Both goals against the Bulldogs came on penalty corner opportunities for the Great Danes, with McConville taking hard, direct shots on the goal from the top of the circle. The rookie has 10 total points on the season, and leads the conference with 42 shots.

19th-ranked UAlbany (7-2) has been in the national poll for three consecutive weeks. The Great Danes will return to action on Tuesday, hosting crosstown-rival Siena at Alumni Turf Field at 4 p.m.

PAW PRINTS: UAlbany's game versus Siena on Tuesday will be a "Stick it to Cancer" game to raise money for the National Foundation for Cancer Research. Immediately following the game, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., the Great Danes will be hosting a clinic for youth field hockey players in the seventh and eighth grades. The cost is $5 per player, and all proceeds will go to the National Foundation for Cancer Research.
