Richmond, Va. (Sept. 5) - Old Dominion senior midfielder Marina DiGiacomo (Mendoza, Argentina) was named the Colonial Athletic Association's first field hockey Player of the Week for the 2000 season, as announced Sept. 5 by the CAA office.
DiGiacomo, a 2000 Honda Award hopeful, earned the honor after leading her team to a 2-1 record over the first two weeks of the season. Over the three game period, she netted five goals and assisted on four more.
