NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Freshman forward Shelby Friedland (New Bedford, MA/New Bedford HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's women's soccer team has received a conference award.

Friedland has been named Little East Conference Women's Soccer Rookie of the Week.

Friedland scored three goals and added one assist in UMass Dartmouth's first four games, tying her for the team lead in scoring and helping the Corsairs begin the year with a 3-1 record. She scored twice in a 2-1 win at Gordon, and added another goal in a 4-2 win at Curry.

"Shelby is talented, and she's worked really hard this pre-season," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Nicole Hanewich. "She has a good attitude whether she starts or she comes off the bench, and she has come through in the clutch. She has the ability to come off the bench and generate momentum."

UMass Dartmouth will return to action when they visit Eastern Nazarene Wednesday.
