Oct. 7, 2009

FAIRFIELD, CT - Freshman Gabriella Riber (Stockholm, Sweden) was named the Northeast Conference Co-Golfer of the Week today. She earned the award after finishing fifth at the ECAC Division I Championships at Kiskiack Golf Course in Williamsburg, VA last weekend.

The freshman fired rounds of 78 and 75, finishing just two strokes out of the top spot in the medalist race out of 55 golfers. Riber's performance helped the Pioneers finish in fifth place in the 10-team field, besting four other Northeast Conference schools that participated. This is the rookie's first selection as well as SHU's first weekly honoree.

She shares the weekly prize with Skylar Hay of Saint Francis (PA).

The Pioneers are back in action this weekend at the Rutgers Invitational.
