McKnight Earns Big East Co-Rookie Of The Week Honors
Notre Dame, Ind. -- Notre Dame freshman midfielder Reggie Mcknight (Greenville, SC) was named the Big East Co-Rookie of the Week leading the 18th-ranked Irish to their first victory of the season in a 3-0 win over Providence on Sunday. McKnight accounted for all three goals in the game, scoring one and assisting on the other two.
McKnight, who is the only freshman to have played in all three outings, earned his first collegiate start against the Friars. He assisted on Notre Dame's first two goals in the first half and then tallied his first collegiate score at the 55:20 mark of the contest.
The Irish currently have a 1-1-1 overall record and are 1-0-1 in BIG EAST play.
