GIBSONIA, PA – Hilbert College’s Tricia Knight (Sardinia, NY/Pioneer) was named an All-Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) Second Team selection for the 2007 soccer season. Teammate Katrina Galofaro (Dunkirk, NY/Silver Creek) was recognized as an Honorable Mention selection.

A junior forward, Knight paced the Hawks with 24 points including nine goals and six assists while starting all 18 games this fall. Knight is ranked in the conference’s top 10 for eight different offensive categories including shots per game (third), goals per game (sixth), and assists per game (fifth). An honorable mention selection a year ago, her 22 career goals currently rank third all-time for the royal and white.

Galofaro completes her senior year as one of coach James Ruggiero’s all-time best defenders. With a goal and an assist this season, Galofaro helped secure three shutout wins and finishes her collegiate career with 61 starts to her credit.

The Hawks finished the 2007 season with a 4-12-2 mark and will welcome back the scheduled return of 14 players next fall.
