Freshman goalkeeper Madeline Hurley earned MAAC Rookie of the Week honors late Tuesday after two fantastic showings this past weekend. It's the second such trophy for Siena in just three weeks, following Jasmine Carrillo's win after the team's opening weekend.

Hurley has emerged as Siena's starter in goal, and shined in two home victories on Saturday at the Siena Swim Center. Against Villanova, she recorded 16 saves and a steal in a 9-7 win, and she stopped three of four shots on goal in one period of action in a 14-5 rout of Utica. On the weekend, her save percentage was an impressive .704.

Hurley and the Saints return to action with two games at the Claremont Convergence on Friday.
