Kendra Harbinger earns 2nd AE Rookie of the Week Award
ALBANY, N.Y. – For the second time this season, University at Albany women’s lacrosse midfielder Kendra Harbinger has been named America East Rookie of the Week.
Harbinger, from Clifton Park, N.Y., scored three second-half goals against Dartmouth this past Wednesday, helping the Great Danes mount a comeback in a 12-8 loss at Casey Stadium. She also had six draw controls, giving her a team-high 13 for the season.
Harbinger is tied for the team lead in goals (eight) with senior Emma Powlin. Wednesday marked her second consecutive hat trick — she also had scored three times Feb. 24 at Bryant.
The Shenendehowa High graduate also had been named Rookie of the Week on Feb. 19, after she had scored twice in her collegiate debut against Yale.
UAlbany returns to action Wednesday when it hosts Connecticut at 2 p.m. at Casey Stadium.
