College soccer: November 2008 Archives

Notre Dame senior Brittany Bock, a 2005 Neuqua Valley graduate, was excited Monday night after learning the Fighting Irish earned a No. 1 seed for the upcoming NCAA women's soccer tournament, which begins Friday.

Bock also reported she was ready to rejoin the Irish on the field after she sat out the Big East championship game Sunday afternoon. Notre Dame beat Connecticut 1-0 in overtime with Bock and leading scorer Kerri Hanks on the sidelines. Fellow Neuqua graduate Michele Weissenhofer earned the assist on the winning goal.

"It was precautionary," Bock said of sitting out, though she did not disclose the exact injury. "With the NCAAs starting we didn't want to push anything. I should be fine. Obviously we wanted to win the Big East, but it wasn't like the NCAAs where if you don't win, you're done.”
