RELEASE: ITHACA, NY– BRSN has named freshman hockey forward Gillis Frechette as this week’s Athlete of the Week. On Saturday, Cornell went down to Boston to play Northeastern in the 1st round of the national tournament. Frechette netted the game-winning goal inovertime to send the Big Red to the Frozen Four. Gillis said during an interview earlier, “I found the puck on my stick and all I saw was me and the goalie…I remember in pre-scout coach said ‘You have to get the goalie moving because she’s really good’…So I remember just making the move to my backhand and telling myself ‘Do not miss this. You have an open net.’” The Weston, Mass. native leads the team’s freshmen with 13 points this season. This marks the fourth time in school history that the Big Red has advanced to the Frozen Four. Cornell travels to Hamden, Conn. next Friday to take on Minnesota in the national semifinal.
