Courtney Callahan Named AT&T Crusader Of The Week

WORCESTER, Mass. - Senior midfielder Courtney Callahan (Acton, Mass.) has been named the AT&T Crusader of the Week, for competition from September 21-27. Callahan led the Holy Cross field hockey team to a 1-1 record last week, with a win over Fairfield and a loss to Quinnipiac.

On the season, Callahan leads the team in scoring with 17 points on eight goals and one assist, including two game-winning goals. Over the course of her collegiate career, she has totaled 18 goals and six assists for 42 points, with four game-winning goals.

The Crusaders (2-7 overall) return to action on Wednesday, Sept. 30, when they play host to Bryant at 4:00 p.m.
