Gavin Named To BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll

March 8, 2010

Junior Grace Gavin has been named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll, conference officials announced this afternoon. Gavin led Loyola's offensive attack last week with five goals and seven points in two games.

In a 13-12 overtime loss at Denver, Gavin recorded a pair of goals and added an assist for three points. Down by four with just nine minutes to go, Gavin notched her second goal of the game cutting the lead to one.

The Charm City native was also a factor in the loss against Towson, recording her third hat trick of the season to go with an assists. Gavin also controlled three draws and cradled two ground balls.

For the season, Gavin leads the team with 14 goals and 18 points and is fastly climbing the Loyola career record list. Midway through her junior year, Gavin is 18th in the career points (144) list and 19th (108) in the career goals list.

Loyola is back in action Tuesday, March 9, when they host Delaware in the final game ever to be played at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field. Opening draw is slated for 4:00 p.m.
