WASHINGTON - Georgetown University sophomore field hockey player Aliyah Graves-Brown (Harrisburg, Pa./Harrisburg Academy) was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll on Monday .
She is the first GU player to earn the distinction since Sarah Butterfield (Bridgewater, N.J./ Oak Knoll), who was named to the Honor Roll last year the week of September 16.
Graves-Brown scored one goal for the Blue & Gray both during the season opening loss at the hands of Appalachian State on Friday and during the team's win against Davidson on Saturday afternoon. She also recorded two assists over the weekend.
The two goals scored over the weekend were the first of her career.
