Two star players on the Montclair State field hockey team received some amazing news on Monday. Senior midfielder Jennifer Tafro, and freshman Arielle Galgano were named the NJAC Offensive Player and Rookie of the Week. Tafro was also named the Athlete of the Week just hours later.
These two outstanding players helped the top-ranked school to a pair of wins last week against New Paltz and Misericordia University. Tafro recorded seven points on three goals and an assist. This also included the game-winning goal against New Paltz. Montclair State beat New Paltz 3-1.
Tafro currently leads the NJAC in points (16), goals (6), and assists (4). She also has a career high of 83 points.
Galgano registered the first two goals of her collegiate career against Misericordia University. The Red Hawks won 5-0.
Montclair State is currently 6-0 for the second time in three years and has won 28 of its 30 games.
