D’Arcy Selected As Skyline Rookie Of The Week; Wehlburg Earns Honor Roll Nod

NEW YORK (Jan. 30, 2017) – USMMA freshman Kaleigh D'Arcy (White Plains, N.Y.) was named the Skyline Conference Women's Basketball Rookie of the Week for the fourth time this season, the league announced on Monday. Additionally, senior Rachel Wehlburg (Herndon, Va.) earned a spot on the weekly honor roll. The accolades come after the duo helped the Mariners to a 1-1 record last week.
 
D'Arcy recorded back-to-back double-digit scoring efforts with 18 points against Old Westbury on Wednesday in a home loss and 11 points at Purchase on Saturday in a road win. 11 of her 18 points against Old Westbury came in the fourth quarter.
 
Wehlburg had a career-day on Saturday at Purchase, as she led all players in the contest with a career-high 21 points and also registered her first career double-double by bringing down a game-high 11 rebounds. She added eight points in the home loss to Old Westbury on Wednesday. Wehlburg tied D'Arcy for the team lead in scoring over the two contests with 14.5 points per game.
