Paige Brown Named American Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week

Oct. 21, 2013

Freshman Paige Brown was named American Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week on Monday. Brown helped guide the Cardinals to a 2-0 week in conference play for a 7-1-0 record.

Brown had a solid showing in goal for the Cardinals in their 2-0 weekend. After letting in only one goal in her team's 3-1 win over Temple on Thursday, she rallied back to lead Louisville to a tight 3-2 win over UConn, making eight saves, a career high for the freshman.

Senior Rachel Melhado was named to the weekly honor roll after helping the Cardinals to a 2-0 week in league play. She helped the defense hold Temple to just one shot on goal in 90 minutes of play. The defense held Temple to just six shots for the entire match. Melhado and the defense held UConn without a shot in the final six minutes after the Cardinals scored the game-winning goal.

Louisville will wrap up the regular season at Cincinnati on Friday, Oct. 25 at 7:00 p.m.
