Hofstra University senior goalie Jaclyn Pandolf (Sachem North) was named the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Player of the Week, it was announced by the conference office this afternoon.
The honor comes in the first week the conference gave out its weekly awards.
Pandolf was spectacular in Hofstra’s season-opener as the senior netminder had 16 saves, including nine in the second half, to lead the Pride to a 9-8 victory over Colgate on Sunday. Pandolf also had three ground balls in the game and for good measure she made a save with just two seconds remaining to preserve the win.
Pandolf played every minute of every game in net for Hofstra in 2011, while compiling a 10.17 goals against average and a .491 saves percentage.
Hofstra returns to action on Wednesday when it travels to Fairfield for a 3 p.m. contest.
