George Mason freshman Alison Feldman was named Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) women’s soccer Rookie of the Week for the week ending Oct. 17, the CAA announced Monday. It is the first such honor from the CAA for Feldman, and is the second award for a Patriot women’s soccer player this season.

Feldman, who plays defense, made the first point of her career a memorable one, assisting on the game-winning score as time expired in George Mason’s 3-2 double-overtime win at Hofstra University last Friday.

Feldman played a diagonal ball to junior midfielder Danielle MacDonald, who scored with no time left to give the Patriots and new head coach Diane Drake their first CAA win of the year. Feldman, a psychology major, was also part of a Mason defense that recorded a 0-0 shutout at Drexel University on Sunday.

George Mason (6-6-3 overall, 1-2-2 CAA) is unbeaten in its last three contests, all of which have gone into double overtime. Mason is tied for seventh in the 10-team CAA field with five points. The Patriots close out their regular season schedule with a four-game home stand, beginning with University of North Carolina-Wilmington tonight at 7 p.m., followed by a visit from league-leading Virginia Commonwealth University on Sunday at 1 p.m.
