Meghan Cavanaugh Picks Up Second America East Rookie of the Week Honor
ALBANY, N.Y. – UAlbany’s Meghan Cavanaugh has been selected as the America East Women's Soccer Rookie of the Week after helping the Great Danes earn their first-ever league regular season title.
This is Cavanaugh’s second league rookie of the week honor of the season, earning her first on October 3rd. UAlbany, as a team, has three conference rookie of the week awards this year, including two in a row with Chloe Borasky notching the award last week.
The freshman midfielder helped UAlbany win two games this week as the Great Danes earned a share of the America East regular season title and the 1-seed in the upcoming league tournament.
Cavanaugh scored the game-winning goal against Maine in the 85th minute on Thursday, then had an assist on the insurance goal in Sunday’s home win over UMBC.
Cavanaugh and the Great Danes will play in the America East semifinal round on Sunday, October 30th at 4 p.m. against an opponent to be determined.
