HAVERFORD, Pa. – Haverford sophomore attacker Julia Pascarella has been named the Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Week, the conference office announced in a release on Monday afternoon. Pascarella recorded 14 points on the week, including five goals and nine assists.
Pascarella helped anchor the offensive effort for the nation's No. 20 team, adding a goal while tallying three assists in a 20-2 win over Arcadia on Tuesday evening at Swan Field. Pascarella followed up that effort with a four-goal, six-assist performance in a 21-19 triumph over Cabrini on Saturday afternoon. Pascarella's 10 points and six assists both are tied for the second-most in the program's single-game history. Pascarella also tallied three goals on man-up opportunities in the Cabrini contest, a feat which is tied for the most in program history.
