Nov. 24, 2008

WORCESTER, Mass. - Freshman forward Nicola Garat (Princeton, N.J.) has been named the AT&T Crusader of the Week, for competition from November 17-23. Garat scored the first two goals of her collegiate career last week, while leading the Holy Cross women's ice hockey team to a pair of victories over Norwich (3-2) and Castleton State (5-1).

During Saturday's win over Castleton State, Garat scored what proved to be the game-winning goal on a breakway just 57 seconds into the second period, giving the Crusaders a 2-0 lead. She then added a second goal at the 19:52 mark of the third period to conclude the scoring in the game.

Overall this season, Garat is now tied for fifth on the team in scoring with four points on two goals and two assists.

The Crusaders, who currently stand 5-0-1 overall and 5-0-1 in the ECAC East, return to action on Tuesday, Nov. 25, when they play host to Sacred Heart in a non-conference game at 7:00 p.m.
