Casey Luongo nabs ECAC Division II Rookie of the Week honor

OLD WESTBURY, N.Y. — On the heels of being named East Coast Conference Offensive Player of the Week, freshman Casey Luongo also has picked up a big regional award from the Eastern College Athletic Conference.

Luongo on Tuesday was named ECAC Division II Rookie of the Week.

The ECAC comprises 220 programs from New England to the Southeast, including 26 in Division II.

Luongo, a freshman from Center Moriches, N.Y., tallied her first four collegiate goals in a two-match, three-day span last week. Her two goals against Georgian Court lifted the Bears out of 1-0 and 2-1 deficits en route to a 3-2 double-overtime win on Thursday. Luongo then added two more goals on Saturday in a 6-0 win at Post.
