Six Hoyas Honored at BIG EAST Postseason Banquet
The Spelling Bee- Alexa St. Martin
Nolan on St. Martin: "Alexa emerged as a key player for us last fall. Her versatility probably hurt her as I never let her settle in one spot. However since moving to center back she has shown everybody what a good player she is. She was our defensive MVP last year which speaks volumes for her play and I expect her to be a very strong personality on our team this fall."
