Tayllar Righini Named GNAC Women's Soccer Rookie of the Week

BOSTON, Mass. – Freshman midfielder Tayllar Righini has been named the Great Northeast Athletic Conference Women's Soccer Rookie of the Week as announced by the GNAC Tuesday.

Righini kept the Lions alive in the GNAC Quarterfinals, scoring her fourth goal of the season off a header in the second minute of action against Emmanuel College. Thanks to the score, Emerson held a 1–0 lead for much of the contest before the Saints were able to tally two late goals.

The Emerson Women's Soccer Team now awaits to hear about selection for the ECAC Tournament field.
