Georgetown's Wells Named BIG EAST Rookie of the Week
Oct. 29, 2007
Washington, D.C. - For the second week in a row, Georgetown women's soccer freshman midfielder Ingrid Wells (Upper Montclair, N.J./Montclair) was named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week. The BIG EAST announced their weekly selections this afternoon from their home office in Providence, R.I.
Wells is currently ranked sixth nationally in assists per game, averaging 0.68 per contest this season. This year, Wells has dished out 13 assists, which ties her with Nicole DePalma for the GU single-season record. DePalma set the record in 2002 when she also set the single-game record with five assists against Howard. Last Friday, Wells had four assists in a 5-0 win over Cincinnati. The win clinched a first-round bye for the Hoyas in the BIG EAST Tournament.
The freshman also has 23 points during 2007, which tie her for second on the single-season record charts, three behind Jessie Beers-Altman's 26-point season in 2002. The Hoyas will travel to Storrs, Conn. later in the week for a Sunday game against Connecticut. The BIG EAST quarterfinal will be on Sunday, November 4 at 1 p.m.
