WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington freshman Laura Hostetler (Ellicott City, MD/River Hill) was named the Atlantic 10 Conference Rookie of the Week for women's lacrosse, the league office announced Monday. It marks her third A-10 weekly honor. She also was recognized by the Conference on Mar. 2 and Mar. 22.
