Baltimore, Md. - Freshman Christina Gomez was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week for women's soccer as announced by the conference office Monday. Gomez led the team in scoring this week to earn the honor for the first time in her career.

Gomez scored nearly half of Loyola's goals this week, five of 11, in three games. In Tuesday's 4-1 win over Lehigh, Gomez scored once. In a conference win over Canisius (4-0), she recorded two goals and an assist, including the game winner. Sunday Gomez scored twice to tie the game at 2-2, bringing the Greyhounds back from a 2-0 deficit and the eventual 3-2 win.

Gomez leads the team in scoring this season with six goals and three assists for 15 points.

The Greyhounds return to action on Friday, October 13 at Siena.
