BERKELEY - California freshman Brynn Gasparino was named the MPSF Rookie of the Week after scoring six goals vs. Iona last Wednesday. This is Cal's first conference weekly honor of the season.
Gasparino had a breakout game in Cal's victory against the Gaels last Wednesday. After Iona got on the scoreboard first, Gasparino rattled off four straight goals to give the Bears a 4-1 lead halfway through the first half. She would later add two more scores in the second half to give her six for the game on eight shots. The six goals tied her for second on Cal's single-game record list. She also added an assist, a ground ball and a draw control. Against Virginia Tech last Saturday, Gasparino scored again, this time on a free position shot.
The Golden Bears (3-3, 2-0) are currently in first place in the MPSF. They will square off against Fresno State, in Fresno, on Tuesday, March 19, at 5 p.m. Click here for live stats for that game.
