NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – George Washington freshman midfielder Gabbi Hull was named the Atlantic 10 Lacrosse Rookie of the Week for the first week of the season, the conference announced on Wednesday.
Hull helped GW (1-1) to a dominating 22-7 season-opening victory over crosstown foe Howard last Wednesday. In her collegiate debut in Buff and Blue, the Radnor, Pa., native tallied four goals on five shots and picked up one ground ball.
The rookie’s four scores were the second-most on the team behind sophomore Rachel Mia’s game-high seven. Hull’s efforts also guided the Colonials to a season-opening win over the Bison for the third time in as many years, as they matched the program's second-best single-game goal total of 22.
Hull connected with sophomore Allie Rash in the first half of action for her first collegiate goal, while her next two were unassisted. She also netted the final score of the contest off a pass from classmate Simone Haugen with just 35 seconds remaining.
Hull and the Colonials return to action on Friday, Feb. 22, when they host Denver at 3:30 p.m. at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
