Capuano Named Ivy League Rookie of the Week

PHILADELPHIA - University of Pennsylvania women's soccer player Natalie Capuano has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week for October 31. The announcement was made today by the conference office.

It marks the second time this season the midfielder has been honored. This week's honor occured after she scored the only goal in the Quakers' 1-0 Ivy League win over Brown Sunday afternoon in Providence, R.I. It was Capuano's fifth goal this season, which puts her second on the team in that category.

Penn (8-5-3, 2-2-2 Ivy League) closes out the 2005 regular season Saturday afternoon, hosting Princeton at Rhodes Field. The Quakers and Tigers will kick off at 5 p.m. in the first half of a doubleheader at Rhodes Field -- the Penn and Princeton men will meet afterward, at 7:30 p.m.
