BOSTON, Mass. - Freshman forward Christina Corbi (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) has been named America East Rookie of the Week for the period ending Sept. 11, the conference announced Monday afternoon.
In a 1-1 week for UMBC, Corbi recorded three points for the Retrievers. In a 2-1 loss at Liberty last Thursday, Corbi recorded an assist on UMBC's lone goal in the match.
On Sunday, she notched the game-winner in a 2-0 victory against Longwood that helped snap a four-game losing streak for UMBC.
Corbi currently leads the team with five points and is second on the team in shots taken with 14.
UMBC will return to the pitch on Thursday, Sept. 14 as they continue a four-game homestand and welcome St. Francis (Pa.) for a 7 p.m. contest.
