Three Owls Tabbed With Little East Conference Honors

PAWTUCKET, R.I. - Two athletes on the women's soccer team, as well as an Owl from the swim and dive team picked up Little East Conference weekly awards, the conference office announced today.

Women's Soccer

Junior defender Maggie Vogt (Bow, N.H.) was named the Little East's Defensive Player of the Week after scoring the game-winning goal in double overtime to lift KSC over Eastern Connecticut State University 1-0 in a critical LEC matchup.  The tally was Vogt's second on the season, both from long distance.  She has also been a staple on the back line of defense for the Owls all season long, helping allow opponents just 1.7 goals per game, good for fourth in the conference.  This past week, the Owls allowed did not allow a goal in either of the two games they played.

Keene State's Abbie Terrinca (Ludlow, Mass.) picked up the Little East Conference's Goalkeeper of the Week honor after seeing over 100 minutes of action between the pipes for the Owls this week.  Terrinca got the start in the second half of the 8-0 victory for the Owls over Framingham State, playing in 11 minutes and 29 seconds without allowing a goal.  She then got the start and played all 103:56 of KSC's double overtime victory over the ECSU, scooping up all five shots that the Warriors took to earn the shutout.  Through ten games played so far this season, Terrinca has a 1.43 goals against average, along with a saving percentage of .786, good for fourth out of all goalies in the LEC.

Women's Swimming and Diving

One of the newest Owl members, Jaelin Jang (Fall River, Mass.), picked up the Rookie Swimmer of the Week after opening her collegiate career with a win in the 200 free in 2:05.07.  She also competed in the 400 IM event at this past weekend's meet at Colby-Sawyer College, where she was able to finish in second place with a time of 5:07:87.  As a team, KSC dunked the Chargers 127-71 in their first meet.  Jang will look to continue her successes this weekend when the Owls will have their first home meet of the season against St. Michael's College and Norwich University.
