Bergman Named NEC Field Hockey Co-Rookie of the Week

(Fairfield, CT) – Sarah Bergman (Blandon, PA) has been named Northeast Conference Field Hockey Co-Rookie of the Week, announced by the NEC Monday afternoon.

Bergman assisted four goals in Sacred Heart's two wins this past weekend.  She set up a game-tying goal by Lindsay Kasten (Fair Haven, NJ) in a 3-2 win at Bryant on Friday, then connected with Kasten again for the game's first goal in a 4-0 shutout of Siena on Sunday.  She also earned the assists on goals by Jen O'Malley (Boston, MA) and Karly Duven (Freehold, NJ) later in the game.

Her efforts helped the Pioneers jump back into the middle of the NEC playoff race with one game to go.  She now leads the team with seven assists and is tied for second on the team in points with 13.
