Westwood, MA --- WPI senior Caraline Wood (Averill Park, NY) has been named as the NEWMAC Softball Athlete of the Week for the second time this season.

Wood batted .519 (14-27) with a walk off and four extra base hits to go with 13 RBI and nine runs scored as the Engineers went 7-1. The game-ending hit extended the Engineers winning streak to nine after the first game versus Babson on Saturday. In addition to recording multiple hits in six of the eight games, the senior also collected five RBI in the nightcap at Springfield on Tuesday. The Crimson and Gray also faced local foes Worcester State and Clark during the busy week.

MIT senior Ravenne Nasser (Methuen, MA) was selected as the conference pitcher of the week.

WPI (19-7, 9-1), who is tied with MIT atop the NEWMAC standings, returns to action Friday for a 3pm twinbill at Coast Guard.
