RICHMOND, Va. – Freshman Rachel Whitt (Fredericksburg, Va.) provided all the scoring Virginia Commonwealth University would need in a victory Sunday, and now she's reaping the benefits.

Whitt was named the Colonial Athletic Association's Rookie of the Week on Monday, one day after she converted a feed from sophomore Kelsey Scherrer (Chesapeake, Va.) in the sixth minute of VCU's 3-0 win over Appalachian State Sunday in Boone, N.C.
In 11 matches this season, Whitt has scored three goals and assisted on another. This is her first CAA weekly honor.
Whitt and the Rams return to action on Friday, Oct. 22 when they head to Norfolk, Va. to take on Old Dominion in CAA action at 5 p.m.
