WALKER RECEIVES AMERICA EAST CO-ROOKIE OF THE WEEK HONORS FOR WOMEN’S SOCCER
Kersha Walker (Burlington, Ontario, Canada/St. Thomas Aquinas) was selected as America East Women’s Soccer Co-Rookie of the Week for her performance in the period of October 11-17. It marks the second time that she has received the award this season.
Walker notched a goal in the Retrievers’ 2-1 win over Stony Brook last Friday, and scored what would be the game-winner in the 4-0 shutout of Albany on Sunday. She also tallied an assist for UMBC’s second goal in that game.
Currently, Walker is tied for the team lead in goals with four, and ranks second in points with nine.
She shares the honor with Maine’s Laura Harper, who scored a pair of goals in each of Maine's wins, a 5-0 decision over Hartford on Friday, and a 3-1 decision over Vermont on Sunday.
