UConn Huskies Player an Team of the Week for October 17-23

Here we go again...

Player of the Week: Nicole Paniccia, GK, Women's Ice Hockey:

Nicole Paniccia is our UConn Player of the Week.

Alexandra Garcia struggled in goal on Friday night against Maine, so Heather Linstad pulled her and brought in Paniccia, the young sophomore  Paniccia played 44 minutes and made 21 saves while allowing only a single goal. On Saturday, she was back in the lineup against the Black Bears, and recorded a shutout as the Huskies notched their first win of the year, 3-0. She was also named the Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week for her efforts.

Honorable Mentions (in order)

1. Marie Elena Bolles, W, Field Hockey: Bolles notched the game winner against Syracuse in a 3-2, double OT win. The Huskies clinched at least a share of the Big East title and will have the #1 seed in the conference tournament.
2. Anne Jeute, F, Fiel Hockey: Jeute was named Offensive Player of the Week in the Big East thanks to scoring two goals and an assist this past week. Jeute scored a goal against BU on Wednesday night and added one against Syracuse on Sunday. She then assisted on Bolles' game winner vs. the Orange to help them win.
3. Mattison Quayle, OH, Women's Volleyball: Quayle recorded her third straight double-double on Friday and had 15 kills on Sunday.

Team of the Week:

As mentioned above, the Huskies went 2-0 and clinched a share of the Big East regular season title. They will face Rutgers and Princeton away next weekend before heading up to Syracuse for the Big East Championship. Then, it's on to the NCAA's and hopefully host a regional.
