YORK, PA - York College senior Danielle Gaitings (Massapequa, N.Y./Massapequa) was named the Capital Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week as announced by the conference office on Monday.
Gaitings was selected for the defensive player of the week award after recording a defensive save in both of York's contests this week. Gaitings denied a first-half Stevenson attempt when the Spartans already trailed the Mustangs 1-0 late in the opening stanza, helping spark the Spartans' come-from-behind 3-1 victory. Gaitings added another defensive stop midway through the second half of the Spartans' 3-1 setback against #19 Lynchburg.
Gaitings is an early childhood/special education major and is the daughter of Daniel and Ellen Gaitings.
