BOSTON – For the second time this season, University at Albany freshman Hailey Carroll has been named America East Rookie of the Week for women’s lacrosse. She was named alongside UMass Lowell’s Kristina Keith, named Offensive Player, and Lowell’s Renee Gonzalez, named Defensive Player.

She scored five goals on eight shots and grabbed four ground balls in UAlbany’s first game last week a 21-11 win against Bryant off site in Queensbury, N.Y. Carroll followed up that performance with two goals against #22 Stanford, a 16-13 loss, the Danes’ first of the season.
Through four games, Carroll ranks third on the team with 11 goals on 19 shots. She is fourth in points and third in ground balls.
UAlbany went 3-1 at home to open the season and will now play its road opener on Saturday, March 9 at Penn State.
