Middlebury College women's lacrosse attack Emma McDonagh (Reading, Mass.) has been named the IWLCA Division III Offensive Player of the Week. The accolade comes days after the Panther junior was selected as the NESCAC Player of the Week. The third-year player 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 Sunday over Hamilton. McDonagh leads the team in scoring and is currently in a fourth-place tie among her league peers in assists (18) and eighth in points (47).
McDonagh and her teammates concluded the regular-season portion of their schedule last night with an 18-6 road victory at Williams. The Panthers secured the top seed in the upcoming NESCAC Tournament and will host a quarterfinal game Saturday on Kohn Field against eighth-seeded Hamilton.
