Karen Mushrall

Westwood, MA --- WPI junior Karen Mushrall (Mariaville, ME) has been selected as the NEWMAC Field Hockey Defensive Athlete of the Week.

Mushrall yielded only one goal in a two-win week for WPI. In a 6-0 shared shutout at Clark, the junior stopped five shots and went on to go the distance in a double OT triumph at Wheaton. Of her 12 saves versus the Lyons, Mushrall came up huge with an amazing diving stick save late in regulation.

Mount Holyoke senior Sophie Perekslis (Millerton, NY) took home the conference's offensive weekly honor.

Field Hockey (8-2, 3-1 NEWMAC) begins a three-game homestand Saturday with a 2:30 matchup versus MIT (10-2, 3-1).
