Local trio helping Eckerd women's soccer
Three freshmen defenders from Tampa Bay have sparked Eckerd College’s women’s soccer program.
Shannon Larkin (Mitchell), Elena Madrazo (Chamberlain) and Christina Rosetti (St. Petersburg) have started all nine games for the Tritons (5-2-2).
Their performances have helped Eckerd snap a six-year, 46-match losing streak in the conference and end an 0-19 streak against Barry University last week.
Larkin was the Times’ North Suncoast player of the year last season. Madarzo has an assist at Eckerd, and Rosetti’s 740 minutes played rank second on the team.
