Policastro Earns Third NJAC Women's Soccer Rookie of the Week Honor

Montclair, NJ (10/17/11) – Freshman goalkeeper Gina Policastro (East Brunswick, NJ / East Brunswick) earned her third New Jersey Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week honor on Monday.

Policastro earns NJAC Rookie of the Week honors after surrendering just one goal in 200 minutes of NJAC Tournament play. In the first postseason game of her collegiate career, she collected four saves and added two additional stops in penalty kicks to advance MSU to the NJAC semifinals in penalties following a scoreless draw with William Paterson. One night later, she wrapped up her freshman season by collecting six saves in the Red Hawks’ 1-0 defeat to eventual NJAC Champion TCNJ.

A second-team all-conference selection, Policastro currently leads the NJAC in save percentage (.836).
