After recording a hat trick in her collegiate debut Saturday in a win over Ohio, freshman Amanda Cassera (Fairfield, N.J.) has been named this year's first GoTerriers.com Student-Athlete of the Week.
Saturday's 5-1 win over the Bobcats in the season opener also marked the first-ever game on New Balance Field.
The New Jersey native got help from two fellow rookie strikers for her first two goals as Taylor Blood and Sara Martineau assisted on her goals in the 28th and 33rd minutes, respectively.
She completed the hat trick in the closing minutes on a perfectly executed corner, as she flicked the ball to the top of the net to put the finishing touches on the 5-1 triumph.
