SWEET BRIAR, Va. --- Field hockey goalkeeper Katie Torretti (Lemon Grove, Calif./Bishops School) has been named the October Vixen of the Month by the Sweet Briar College Athletics Department. Torretti capped her rookie season in cage with a stellar performance down the stretch.
When SBC's senior net minder Brooke Scott (Kemah, Tex./Episcopal) was lost to injury in mid October, Torretti stepped into the full time starting position. On the month, Torretti recorded two shut out halves against top-ranked teams (Bridgewater and Randolph-Macon) and guided the Vixen squad to a 1-0 win over Notre Dame (Md.).
Additionally, the Old Dominion Athletic Conference twice recognized Torretti in October. The first-year received ODAC Player of the Week Honorable Mention accolades for the weeks of October 8th and 15th.
SBC swimmer Lydia Fleck (Poquoson, Va./ Poquoson) and Vixen Soccer's Marissa McCord (Asheville, N.C./T.C. Roberson) also received Vixen of the Month votes.
