Warrior Spotlight: Alessandra Ricigliano

Tom Conley ’15, Assistant Sports Editor

Freshman Alessandra Ricigliano has been taking the NE-10 golf world by storm. Not even three months into her collegiate athletic career and she is already racking up the awards. So far the awards Ricigliano has under her belt consist of NE10 player of the week, three NE10 rookie of the weeks, not to mention Corvias ECAC player of the month. Needless to say, the Merrimack’s women’s golf program is lucky to have her. Being only a freshman, Ricigliano seems to have four promising years ahead of her. Now that you know her game, lets get to know the athlete.
