EDISON, NJ - After helping the Iona College women's water polo team post a 4-0 record this weekend, and clinching its second straight regular season MAAC Championships, freshman Katie Stelnicki was named MAAC Rookie of the Week.
Stelnicki had an impressive final weekend of regular season play, scoring five goals overall and at least once in every contest for the Gaels. But, it was Stelnicki’s play on defense where she really shined, racking up an incredible 15 steals. The highlight coming against St. Francis (N.Y.), where she snatched an outstanding eight steals from the Terriers.
The Gaels will begin the chase to a second MAAC Championship on Saturday, April 28 in the semifinal round of the 2012 MAAC Championship at McCann Natatorium, on the campus of Marist College.
