Nov. 30, 2011

SOUTH HADLEY, MA-Freshman guard Kelsey Garrity (Somerville, MA/Somerville HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth women's basketball team has been honored by the New England Women's Basketball Association.

Garrity has been named the first NEWBA Rookie of the Week.

Garrity leads the Corsairs in scoring, averaging 15.8 points per game through the first four games of the season. She made 24 of 41 shots from the field for 58.5 per cent, averaged six rebounds per game, and led the team with 13 steals.

"Kelsey's been a tremendous addition to our backcourt," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Amanda Van Voorhis. "Her stats speak for themselves, she's contributing in more ways than just scoring, and it looks like she's going to be a real impact player for us."

The Corsairs are 3-2 and will return to action when they host Becker Thursday night.
