Amy Lepley

WORCESTER, Mass. - Holy Cross freshman forward/guard Amy Lepley (Norfolk, Mass.) has been named the Anaconda Patriot League Rookie of the Week for the fourth time, more than any other conference player this season. She averaged 8.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 5.0 steals per game in the two outings against Colgate and Lehigh to help her team to a 1-1 record last week.

Lepley tallied 11 points, five rebounds, six steals, two assists and a block in the Crusaders' Wednesday triumph over Colgate. She added five points, four steals and four rebounds against Lehigh on Saturday. Lepley now leads the team in steals (35) and blocks (9). For the week, Lepley shot 50 percent (5-of-10) from the field and 83 percent (5-of-6) from the free throw line.

Holy Cross (6-15, 2-5 Patriot League) will have the school-week off before traveling to Easton, Pa., for the second meeting of the season against Lafayette (4-17, 2-5 Patriot League) on Feb. 6. The game will be held at the Kirby Sports Center with a tip time set for 1:00 p.m. The Crusaders look to avenge their 43-39 home loss from early January as they have won the last two meetings in Easton.
