EASTON, Mass. (September 20, 2011) – Stonehill College freshman Emily Iverson (Elmhurst, Ill./York) has been named the Northeast-10 Conference (NE-10) Co-Rookie of the Week and Co-Setter of the Week by the league office, it was announced earlier today.
Only three weeks into the season, Iverson has garnered accolades from the NE-10 each week earning Setter of the Week honors on September 7 and Rookie of the Week honors on September 13.

Iverson dished out 54 assists for Stonehill in a 3-1 win over Molloy College on Friday night becoming the first setter since 2008 to have more than 53 assists in a four-set match and only the second setter to record 50 or more assists in a four-set match since Andrea Wirth (Mesa, Ariz./St. Mary's) who notched three-50 assist performances in 2008. Wirth's highest total that season was 53 against Franklin Pierce University in a 3-1 win on November 8.
