Athletes can earn Player of the Week honors just once during the 2012 regular season. The following players are for the week of June 3 through June 9.
The Midwest, Southeast and West seasons are complete.
Emily Tripodi, Sr., West Genesee (Camillus, N.Y.), midfield
Tripodi totaled six points on four assists and two goals in the 9-5 Class A championship victory over Penfield on June 9. But it was her timing and not the box score that earns her East Region Player of the Week. With the Class A championship tied 5-5, the senior had her hand in West Genesee’s final four goals. Tripodi scored with 9:58 remaining to break the tie and then set up Erica Geremia on two goals and Shannon Hawley on one to give the Wildcats the win. Tripodi’s performance earned her Tournament MVP honors and sealed the Wildcats' first championship since 2008. Tripodi finished the season with 102 points on 75 assists and 27 goals.
