Even without the Big East regular season and conference tournament crowns, Rachel Corboz has already had a sensational collegiate career.
The youngest sibling in a soccer-playing family (siblings Mael and Daphne both play professionally), Corboz led Georgetown to a high-scoring finish in the Big East tournament last week.
The New Jersey native scored three times and had two assists across the semifinals and finals of the Big East tournament, leading the Hoyas to 4-0 and 3-0 wins against Marquette and Butler.
Player of the Week: Rachel Corboz, Georgetown
An integral part in Georgetown’s 2016 run to the College Cup, this year’s Hoyas will have similar ambitions in mind in this year’s tournament.
There were several other standout efforts in last week’s conference tournament action.
Team of the Week (October 30-November 5)
M Aline De Lima, Baylor – The senior earned Most Outstanding Offensive Player at the Big 12 tournament after leading the Bears to the conference’s automatic bid.
M Rachel Corboz, Georgetown – Named the Big East Championship Most Outstanding Offensive Player, Corboz scored and assisted the game-winning in Sunday’s victory against Butler. She had two goals and an assist in the win over Marquette on Thursday.
M Mikaela Harvey, Texas A&M – While her name didn’t show up on the score sheet, the senior led the Aggies to three wins in Orange Beach and an SEC title. That included a narrow 2-1 win against Florida in the semifinals.
M Danielle Marx, La Salle – Another standout whose name didn’t show up much in scoring department, Marx’s leadership was critical nonetheless in La Salle’s victorious A10 run. She helped keep her team organized and hold their nerve in two overtime wins in the conference tournament, including Sunday’s title game.
M Taylor Torres, North Texas – The Mean Green emerged as Conference USA champions thanks in large part to Torres’ heroics. She scored a hat trick in the opening game against Middle Tennessee State, and converted the clinching spot kick as North Texas won the conference tournament on penalties.
F Evelyne Viens, South Florida – After scoring the game-winning goal in Friday’s 1-0 win over SMU, Viens converted in the PK shootout as the Bulls captured the AAC tournament crown on PKs.
F Laura Freigang, Penn State – Freigang scored in back-to-back games for the Nittany Lions, grabbing the winning goal in the Big Ten semifinal and the equalizer in the final.
F Kendall Ham, Bucknell – Ham went ham in the Patriot League title game, scoring a hat trick in the first 22 minutes to lean the Bisons to a second straight NCAA Tournament appearance.
