ALBANY, N.Y. – After notching a shutout in a key victory over Stony Brook on Thursday, Andrea Leitner was selected as an America East Women’s Soccer Co-Rookie of the Week, announced by the league on Monday. 

This is the first-ever weekly honor for Leitner and the first rookie award for UAlbany this season.  In total, the Great Danes have three America East weekly honors, including Player of the Week awards for Vivian Vega and Mariah Williams.

Leitner stood in goal for UAlbany’s shutout victory over Stony Brook on Thursday night.  The freshman earned nine saves, including four in the first half and five in the second, to earn the win.

The victory helped UAlbany secure a berth into the America East Tournament, and later, a home game for the Great Danes.

UAlbany will host Vermont on Thursday, October 26th at 7 p.m. for the America East Tournament quarterfinal round.
