Senior Teresa Hegarty (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Merion Mercy Academy) of The University of Scranton women's soccer team scored the lone goal of the match in Sunday's 1-0 win over Stockton and has been named Scranton Athlete of the Week for the period ending Sept. 4, 2022.
This marks the first career Scranton Athlete of the Week honor for Hegarty.
The Royals' midfielder curled a free kick into the top right corner of the net in the 66th minute to make it a 1-0 game as the goal proved to be the eventual game-winner. The goal was Hegarty's first of the season and the eighth of her career.
Scranton went 2-0 at the Stockton Tournament over the weekend with a 5-0 victory over Kean and the afore-mentioned 1-0 win over the host Ospreys.
The Royals will host Marywood in the program's home opener on Wednesday night at Weiss Field with start time set for 7 p.m.
