Jasbon Honored as Division III Rookie of the Week for Connecticut College
NEW LONDON, Conn.--Connecticut College first year utility Nicky Jasbon of Greenacres, Fla. has been honored as the Collegiate Water Polo Association Division III Rookie of the Week.
Jasbon scored 18 goals in five conference matches to lead her team to three conference victories Wheaton College of Illinois. She erupted with 10 scores in a 27-10 triumph against Utica College Saturday.
"Nicolle is one of the most experienced players on our team already and the enthusiasm she brings to every game, practice, drill and set that has helped the entire team benefit from that experience," Connecticut College Men's and Women's Water Polo Coach JJ Addison said. "She is always pushing herself to improve and get stronger so I think this will be the first of many times she is recognized for the results of all her hard work."
Jasbon made an immediate impact for the women's cross country team this past fall. She was the sixth Camel finisher at the New England Division III Championship.
Jasbon has netted 27 goals and dished out 14 assists over the first 10 matches of the season.
The Camels will host Middlebury and WPI for matches at 1 and 7 p.m.
