In addition, Red Storm goalkeeper Meredith Reinhardt was named to the Big East honor roll for the third consecutive week and fourth time overall this season.

A native of Melville and graduate of Half Hollow Hills East High School, Bellero received the award after scoring three goals in two games. She scored twice, including the overtime game-winner, and had an assist in a 3-2 come-from-behind win over Villanova. Bellero would then score the game’s only goal in a 1-0 win over Xavier.
