Sacred Heart University women's soccer first-year Azria Malloy (Bethlehem, Conn.) was named the Northeast Conference Rookie of the Week, as announced by the conference office Tuesday afternoon.

Malloy, a graduate of Nonnewaug High School, tallied the first goal of her collegiate career in the 84thminute of the Pioneers win over Saint Peter's. The goal was the only tally of the match, giving SHU its third win in its last four outings. Malloy has appeared in each of the Pioneers seven games this season, with five starts to her credit.

The Pioneers are 3-3-1 overall this season, with the opening of NEC play coming on Friday at league-newcomer, Merrimack. SHU returns home on Sunday, September 22 to host Dartmouth in the non-conference season finale. Game time on Park Avenue Field is set for 2:00 pm.
