East Islip’s Rachel Florenz has started her first season at Stony Brook with a bang as the Seawolves freshman was recently named America East women’s soccer Rookie of the Week.

Florenz had two goals in Stony Brook’s 3-0 home opener win on August 20 over Iona. Playing 49 minutes, the East Islip High School graduate had three total shots, with two on goal

According to the match report, she scored the game’s first goal against Iona just 1:35 into action, heading in a corner kick from Christen Cahill. Florenz found the back of the net again less than four minutes later, driving in a pass from Jordyn Klapper (Wantagh) for her second career goal.
