Rider's Muschs NEC Co-Rookie of the Week
Synapse Sports Rookie Honor Roll
SOMERSET--After leading the Rider University field hockey team to an undefeated week, freshman Allison Muschs (Linkebeek, Belgium) was named the Northeast Conference Co-Rookie of the Week for all games played August 27-September 3.
Muschs shares the award with Liz Bergman (Sacred Heart).
"We are very excited that Allison was selected for this honor," said head coach Lori Hussong, in her 13th season at Rider. "We look forward to seeing her continue to grow and progress as she gets acclimated to our system."
Muschs scored twice during the week, an insurance goal late in the game on a penalty stroke to give Rider (2-1) a 2-0 lead against Villanova on August 31 and her penalty stroke goal 10 minutes into the second half was the game-winner as the Broncs scored a 5-1 win over Colgate on September 2.
Muschs leads Rider in scoring with four points.
In the 13 seasons under Hussong, this is the 38th time that Rider has had a conference Rookie of the Week honoree.
Muchs also earned a spot on the Synapse Sports Rookie Honor Roll for the week.
Winners of two in a row, Rider travels to Lafayette on September 7 at 7pm for the first of five straight road games.
The Broncs return home for a noon faceoff on September 22 against Lock Haven at Ben Cohen Field.
