Women’s Student-Athlete of the Week

Alana Keating - Basketball - Senior - Leominster, MA

Alana Keating of the basketball team has been tabbed as the WPI Female Student-Athlete of the Week for the week ending Sunday, January 12th.  Keating netted 10 of her game-high 17 points during a game-opening 18-0 run as host WPI defeated Western New England on Thursday night at Harrington Auditorium.  The senior guard shot an impeccable 4-for-4 from 3-point land en route to a career-best point total and has now reached double digits in five straight games, which has coincided with a five-game winning streak for the Engineers, who improved to 10-4 overall with the victory.  Earlier in the week Keating tallied 10 points, including a trio of 3-points as the Crimson and Gray knocked off undefeated Williams to deliver head coach Cherise Galasso her 350th career victory.
