WEST POINT, N.Y. -
Sophomore Linda Rosas picked up her second weekly honor in 24 hours with her selection as the ECAC Defensive Player of the Week Tuesday afternoon after being named the Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Week on Monday following a pair of shutout performances over Big East opponents Seton Hall and Syracuse.
The blankings and the citations are the first of Rosas' career as the native of Granada Hills, Calif., went 2-1-0 last week with a 0.67 goals-against average and 17 saves. She made four stops in a 1-0 victory over previously unbeaten Seton Hall at the start of the week and turned aside all six shots in Sunday's 1-0 clean sheet against Syracuse as Army clinched runner-up honors at the Black Knight Classic.
Rosas recorded a career-high seven saves in a 2-1 loss to undefeated Iowa (8-0-0) in the opening round of the Black Knight Classic, and was among three Black Knights named to the all-tournament team.
Army returns to action when it heads to California for the Under Armour Invitational at Titan Stadium on the campus of Cal State Fullerton this weekend. The Black Knights take on the host Titans Friday evening at 10:30 p.m. EDT and Long Beach State Sunday at 2 p.m. EDT.
