EDISON, N.J. – Freshman attacker Allison Gionta (Eastport, N.Y./Eastport South Manor) was honored by the MAAC in the conference’s weekly award announcement on Monday as the Rookie of the Week.

The freshman attacker continued her evolution into Marist’s top threat off of the bench with her sixth straight multi-point game on Saturday at Canisius. Facing off with the Golden Griffins, Gionta tallied two second half goals, as well as a first half assist on Kirsten Viscount’s score for three total points in the game.

This is the second individual weekly award for Gionta in her young career. For the Women’s Lacrosse program in 2013, this is the fifth overall award as both Gionta and senior goalie Ashley Casiano are two-time winners, while junior attacker Tierney Larson was named Offensive Player of the Week on April 15 .

The Red Foxes will next be in competition at the 2013 MAAC Championships that will be held at Marist’s Tenney Stadium this coming weekend. Marist, the third seed will take on the second seeded Fairfield Stags in the semifinals on Friday, May 3. The opening draw is slated for 7 p.m.
