Field Hockey's Kaitlyn Notarianni Named Quinnipiac August Athlete of the Month

Quinnipiac University junior Kaitlyn Notarianni (Clarks Summit, Pa.) was named the Quinnipiac August Athlete of the Month. Notarianni's hat trick against Lehigh on Sunday, Aug. 29 proved to be the difference in the Bobcats' 4-1 win against he Mountain Hawks.

The three goals in the Bobcats win were Notarianni's all-time career high and the first hat trick at Quinnipiac since former captain Ann Marie Mangano accomplished the feat in a 6-0 win against Saint Francis (Pa.) on Oct. 22, 2006. Notarianni scored twice in the first two minutes of the second half, with the second goal coming just 24 seconds after the first one for the two fastest goals scored by an individual in Quinnipiac's Division I history.

Women's volleyball senior Amanda Armstrong (Waukesha, Wisc.) was also nominated after an all-tournament performance last weekend at the Boston College Classic II
