ATTLEBORO, Mass. – Southern Vermont College freshman Maddie Gibney (Albany, N.Y.) has been named the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Women's Soccer Rookie of the Week for the period ending October 21, 2018 as announced by the league on Monday.

The accolade is the second-straight for the Mountaineer and her third of the season after she was awarded by the Conference on October 1 and 15.

Gibney was instrumental in helping Southern Vermont go 2-0 last week. She tallied a pair of late goals on Tuesday to help the Mountaineers register a 2-1 comeback victory over Becker College; the second was her first collegiate game winner and came from the penalty dot with 3:14 left in regulation. The Mountaineer freshman then assisted on her team's first goal, and eventual game winner, of SVC's 2-0 Saturday win at Dean College.

Gibney and the Mountaineers conclude the regular season on Wednesday with a 3 p.m. home match against Bay Path University.
