Three Bulldogs Named All-Tourney At Oregon State

Sophomore Katie Griswold and freshmen Colleen Gorkis and Olivia Colosimo were selected to the all-tournament team for their play at Oregon State's Nike Invitational over the weekend. Thirteen players were selected from the four-team event that featured Oregon State, Oregon and San Diego State.

Griswold, a Youngstown, Ohio, native, scored Butler's only goal of the weekend and tied for the team lead in shots with three. She is the team's leading scorer this season, owning five of BU's seven goals.

Gorkis, a midfield/defender from Aurora, Ill., started both matches and never came off the field. Colosimo, a midfielder from Thunder Bay, Ontario, is also a starter and registered two shots over the weekend.

The Bulldogs played the host school, nationally-ranked OSU, and Oregon during the event. BU had entered the weekend with two straight wins, coming over Miami (Ohio) and Saint Louis.

Butler has two home matches this week, hosting Oakland Friday, Sept. 24 and Wright State on Sunday.
