  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Rutgers field hockey junior Leann Grondski (Mercerville, NJ) was named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week, the league office has announced.

    Grondski played a big part in giving Rutgers its first two wins of the season. On Tuesday, Sept. 10, Rutgers earned its first victory of the season, 2-1, in overtime at Fairfield. Grondski scored the only regulation goal for Rutgers against the Stags, converting a penalty corner shot from junior Megan Cech (Moorestown, NJ), with less than 12 minutes remaining. After carrying a 1-1 tie through two scoreless overtime periods, Grondski fired the winning penalty stroke in the third series to give the Scarlet Knights their first win of 2002.

    On Friday, Sept. 13, the Knights kicked off the BIG EAST/ Big Ten Challenge with a 2-1 overtime win against Indiana. With another 1-1 tie at the end of regulation, Grondski scored on a penalty stroke 1:36 into the first overtime period to end the match and give RU its second win.

    Grondski, a 2002 preseason all-BIG EAST selection, leads the team with four points this season. She has six career goals and four assists (16 points). Her conference honor is the first weekly award for the Scarlet Knights this season.

    The Scarlet Knights (2-4) will begin the conference season when they host Syracuse on Saturday, Sept. 21, in their home opener. The match will begin at 1 p.m. at the Rutgers Stadium Complex.
