Freshman midfielder Christine Wright (Watertown, NY) had another huge week for the Clarkson University Women's Lacrosse team and was named as the Liberty League's Rookie of the Week on Monday for the fourth time this season.

Wright, who has helped lead the Knights to a 8-2 start, already the largest victory total in program history, scored 10 goals and assisted on five others in a 2-1 week for Clarkson. In a loss at St. Lawrence, Wright scored four goals and added five draw controls and two groundballs in the three-goal defeat.
