Gina Righini Named AT&T Crusader Of The Week

WORCESTER, Mass. - Sophomore midfielder Gina Righini (Salem, N.H.) has been named the AT&T Crusader of the Week, for competition from September 24-30. Righini helped lead the Holy Cross women's soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Army in its only game last week.

During Saturday's victory over the Black Knights, Righini scored the only goal of the game with 31:15 left to play in the second half. Her goal was unassisted, and came when she launched a shot from just outside the left side of the penalty box past the Army goalkeeper.

Righini is now tied for the team lead in scoring this season, with eight points on three goals and two assists. Over the course of her collegiate career, she has now totaled 16 points on seven goals and two assists in 28 games played.

Holy Cross (5-5-1 overall, 1-0-0 Patriot League) returns to action on Friday, Oct. 5, when it travels to Bucknell for a 7:00 p.m. game.
