WORCESTER, Mass. – Holy Cross freshman forward Emily Parker (Johnston, Iowa) has been named the Anaconda Patriot League Rookie of the Week after tallying a double-double in her first career game. She scored 17 points and brought down 10 rebounds, leading the team in both categories against Yale on Nov. 11.
Parker went 8-for-11 from the floor in the 76-71 loss and played in just 20 minutes of action. She becomes the first freshman in the past 10 years of Holy Cross history to post a double-double in her first career game. Suffering her second ACL tear during her senior season of high school, Parker sat out the following game against Connecticut after her top-team performance on Friday but will return to game action this week.
Holy Cross will welcome Quinnipiac to the Hart Center for the home opener on Wednesday, Nov. 16. The Bobcats travel to Worcester, Mass., for a 7:00 p.m. game.
