LEC Rookie of the Week

February 23rd, 1998 by Adam

PSC freshman Krystyna Zagorski (Cliffwood, NJ) was selected LEC Rookie of the Week for the last week of the regular season. It is the third time this season that Zagorski has
been named the LEC’s top rookie.

A 5’10″ center-forward, Zagorski averaged 10.5 points and 7.5 rebounds in two games, both Panther losses. She connected on 56 percent of her shots from the floor (9-of-16),
and added five assists, three steals and two blocked shots. Zagorski had 13 points and five boards in a home loss to Keene State, and turned in seven points and 10 rebounds in a
setback at Eastern Connecticut. She also earned the honor twice in successive weeks last month.

Zagorski has been one of the top freshmen in the conference all season, averaging 6.7 points and 6.1 rebounds off the Panther bench. She leads the team in field goal
percentage (.465), ranks third in rebounding and fourth in scoring. She hits 70 percent from the line, helping PSC to the best FT percentage in the LEC (.692).

The Panthers wrapped up the regular season in sixth place in the LEC at 4-10 under third-year head coach Marti Kingsley, 11-12 overall. As the sixth seed in the LEC
Tournament, PSC plays a first-round game Tuesday (Feb. 24) at third-seeded Western Connecticut in Danbury, CT. The Colonials finished third at 10-4 in the LEC, 19-5 overall.

The LEC semi-finals and final will be at the site of the highest remaining seed after Tuesday’s games, with the tourney champion earning an automatic bid to the NCAA Division
III Tournament.
