PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Notre Dame freshman forward Monica Gonzalez has been named BIG EAST rookie of the week after the first college games of her career. The forward from Richardson, Texas, sparked the second-ranked Irish by coming off the bench in the first game of the season on Friday, Aug. 29, against St. John's

With Notre Dame holding a 1-0 lead late in the first half, Gonzalez, who led her club team, the Dallas Sting, to two national championships, scored an insurance goal and then assisted on another goal to put Notre Dame up 3-0 at halftime. She would then add another assist later in the second half of the 7-0 win.

With the 7-0 win over St. John's and 6-0 win over Michigan State on Sunday, Aug. 31, the 2-0-0 Irish return to action when they travel to Washington on Friday, Sept. 5 before heading to third-ranked Portland on Sept. 7.
