Middlebury College women's lacrosse player Emma McDonagh (Reading, Mass.) has been selected as the NESCAC Player of the Week. The junior attack scored eight goals and assisted on four others in a pair of NESCAC wins last week. McDonagh figured in five of the first six second-half tallies in a come-from-behind win at sixth-ranked Tufts on Saturday, finishing the game with five goals and three helpers. She added a hat trick and assist in a home victory over Hamilton on Sunday afternoon.
McDonagh and her teammates conclude the regular-season portion when they travel to Williams for a 6:00 p.m. contest on Wednesday evening. The Panthers have also secured a top-four seed in the upcoming NESCAC Tournament and will host a quarterfinal game Saturday on Kohn Field.
