Cambridge, Mass. – University at Albany’s Melanie Sosnowski has been chosen America East Conference Rookie of the Week in women’s lacrosse, as announced on Monday, April 6 by the conference office. Sosnowski, a freshman attack from Massapequa Park, N.Y., was selected for the first time this season.

Sosnowski recorded career-highs in goals (3) and ground balls (4) in a 13-7 victory over Vermont on April 1. She netted back-to-back goals in a 35-second span to seal the outcome with 5:31 remaining. Sosnowski had two draw controls in last Saturday’s 17-11 win at Binghamton that moved the Great Danes into second place in the America East standings.

UAlbany (6-6) hosts crosstown-rival Siena (6-5) at John Fallon Field on Tuesday, April 7 at 7:00 p.m. Kayla Best ranks fifth among the conference scoring leaders with 34 goals and nine assists. She has scored a goal in 42 consecutive games, the nation’s third-longest mark.
