Karina Salgado (pictured at right) led the Blue Angels offensive attack last week with a stunning performance. The rookie guided the Blue Angels to their first win of the season while obtaining her first collegiate hat trick. Not only did Salgado tack on three goals, but the freshman also did her best to setup her teammates getting four assists in the same game. The bump in offense skyrocketed Salgado to fourth in the GSAC in total points.
