GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG sophomore forward Katherine Rodriguez (Franklin, Tenn./Father Ryan) has been named this week’s Blue Chip Performer sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. This is the second year that BCBSNC has sponsored the Blue Chip Performer award, which is chosen weekly from all sports in season and runs throughout the 2013-14 UNCG Athletics season.

The Franklin, Tenn. native received a perfect pass from teammate Zoe Fishman (Woodland Hills, Calif/El Camino Real Charter) inside the box and finished past the keeper for her first goal of the season.
