A couple freshmen at Saint Louis University hauled in some awards this week. Whitney Roth and Kelly Waeckerle both were named Atlantic-10 Conference Rookie’s of the Week.
Roth, a setter on the volleyball team, was actually the conference Co-Rookie of the Week. It is the second time Roth has won the award. She shares this week’s honor with Abby Syverson from George Washington.
Waeckerle did her damage on the soccer field. The freshman forward was honored for her performances in wins over Saint Joseph’s and Temple. Against the Hawks, Waeckerle – the Billikens leading scorer – recorded the second two-goal match of her career. She added another goal in the Billikens win over Temple.
