PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Pitt sophomore goalkeeper Nicole D’Agostino was named the Big East Women’s Soccer Goalkeeper of the Week by the Big East Conference on Monday.
D’Agostino, who ranks second in the conference with 87 saves this season, received the award in recognition of her outstanding play in matches against Connecticut and Providence this past week. She totaled 12 saves in the two contests, with nine coming against the Huskies in a 2-1 win on Thursday.
Ensuring back-to-back victories to close out Pitt’s season, D’Agostino halted Connecticut’s offense with a diving save in the closing minutes of the game. She also recorded her third shutout of the year against the Friars on Sunday, a 2-0 performance.

She delivered three of the Panthers’ four goals against Connecticut and Providence, scoring a career-high two goals to solidify Thursday’s win. Charlebois finished the season as the Panthers’ leading goal scorer, totaling five goals on the year for 12 points to go along with two assists.
Pitt concluded its season Sunday with a 7-10-2 overall record and 2-6-2 Big East slate. The seven victories rank as the fourth highest total in school history.
