Middlebury College field hockey player Erin Nicholas (Scarsdale, N.Y.) has been selected as the NESCAC Player of the Week. The sophomore midfielder set up Middlebury's game-winning goal in a 1-0 victory over No. 2 Tufts in the NESCAC Championship game. Nicholas was also responsible for drawing nine penalty corners in two games last weekend. She leads Middlebury in goals (12), assists (9) and points (33). The Panthers captured their sixth NESCAC title.
Nicholas and her teammates return to the field on Saturday when they play an NCAA Tournament Second-Round game on Saturday at 11:00 a.m. between the winner of the Keene State and SUNY New Paltz.
