Former American Heritage star Samantha Perretty earns Big East honors after debut 

By Jeff Greer

Former American Heritage standout goalkeeper Samantha Perretty was named Big East Rookie of the Week after notching a shutout in her first career start at Rutgers.

Perretty’s clean sheet against Georgetown helped Rutgers to an upset over the No. 24 Hoyas.

She allowed a goal in her second match, a 1-0 loss to Villanova. Perretty, a freshman, made four saves in that contest.

Perretty was a four-time all-county goalkeeper at American Heritage and was a standout softball player as well.
