DURHAM, N.C. – Blue Devil freshman Gigi Vasile received ACC Defensive Player of the Week recognition Tuesday following an impressive performance in her Duke debut over the weekend.

Vasile, a defender from Webster, N.Y., was one of four Duke freshmen to start her first collegiate game Sunday against No. 21 Elon. Vasile was tasked with defending Nicole Sinacori, one of Elon’s returning leading scorers. The rookie held Sinacori scoreless in the 17-9 Blue Devil victory, limiting the Phoenix attacker to just two shots, neither on goal.

Vasile also registered one caused turnover in her Duke debut and was a key part of a defensive unit that surrendered just three first-half goals.

Vasile and the Blue Devils climbed one spot to No. 18 in this week’s Cascade Women’s Lacrosse Division I Media Poll. Duke will be back in action with two contests this weekend, hosting Campbell Friday at 2 p.m. and Northwestern Sunday at 12 p.m. Both games will be streamed on ACC Network Extra.
