West Hempstead's Becky Conto was once again named the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Rookie of the Week earlier this week.
Conto, a freshman attack/midfielder for the Hofstra Pride, shared the award with Emily Duffey of Drexel.
It marks Conto's second rookie honor of the season as she previously received the conference's award on March 25.
Conto had a stellar week for the Pride at the draw control, as she had an extraordinary 16 combined in Hofstra’s two games.
She started the week with nine draw controls against Old Dominion on Friday. The total, which allowed Hofstra to control every facet of the game in the 15-6 win, marked a career-high for Conto and also established a individual season-high for a member of the Pride.
Conto also did some scoring during the week as she posted two goals in the game at William & Mary (12-11 overtime loss), while also adding seven draw controls against the Tribe.
For the season, Conto ranks fifth in scoring with 13 points on 10 goals and three assists. She is also second with 33 draw controls and has added 10 ground balls and six caused turnovers.
The Sacred Heart Academy graduate started for West Hempstead's varsity program as an eighth grader at West Hempstead Middle School.
Hofstra (7-5, 1-1 CAA) returns to action on Friday when it hosts James Madison at 4 p.m.
