Moglino Named NJAC Field Hockey Rookie of the Week
Added by Jessica Guerra on September 9, 2013.
The Fall season has just begun at Montclair State, and the athletes are better than ever this year. This is the second straight week that the school has claimed a couple of weekly honors from the New Jersey Athletic Conference.
One lucky athlete was freshman Gianna Moglino, who was named the NJAC Field Hockey Rookie of the Week. She earned this award after collecting 10 points in a 2-0 week of play for the number 2 ranked Red Hawks. Moglino opened the season by netting a goal in a 6-1 non-conference win over Muhlenberg. Just days later, she tied the program’s single-game record by scoring four goals in a 5-0 victory over Alvernia. Because of the Alvernia win, she became the first Montclair State player to net four goals in a game since 2006, when Jennifer Tanis did it against New Paltz.
Moglino currently ranks tied for first in the NJAC in goals (5).
