Wyatt, Nordness earn Big East honors


Two members of the women’s soccer team earned Big East honors for their play last week in capping off a 2-0-0 week.

Forward Elise Wyatt earned Rookie of the Week honors for her five-point performance over the week, grabbing an assist in a 2-0 win over St. Louis last Thursday and scoring twice Sunday in a 4-0 rout of Big East foes Pittsburgh. The goals were the first two of the freshman’s collegiate career.

Leftback Kylie Nordness also received conference honors, being included in this week’s Big East Honor Roll for playing a key role in preserving two shutouts. The junior has helped anchor a backline that has posted six clean sheets so far this season.

The women’s soccer team (7-4-1, 2-1-0) is back in action Friday night when they take on UConn in a Big East matchup before heading to Providence, Sunday.
