WOODLAND, Calif. – University of Colorado lacrosse standout Johnna Fusco has been selected as the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Rookie of the Week.
Fusco, a midfielder from Marietta, Ga., was an important part of CU’s late comeback against Brown. Though the Bears (7-0) claimed the victory 11-8, Fusco scored a career-high four goals in CU’s 8-1 run in the final 12:30 of the game. Fusco scored her first (and the Buffs’ second) with 11:27 remaining. In less than a two minute span to close the game, Fusco scored three, two off of free position shots, in a row to get CU within four. Fusco also tied a team-high two draw controls.
This is Fusco’s second Rookie of the Week title, and the Buffs’ third. Fusco earned ROW honors in CU’s first weekend of play, recording nine points off five goals and four assists against Stetson and Jacksonville.
Fusco leads the Buffs this season with 27 points, nine assists and 43 shots. She ranks second with 18 goals and 26 draw controls.
