Westwood, MA --- WPI senior Sophie Gomarlo (Swanzey, NH) has been tabbed as the NEWMAC Women's Soccer Co-Offensive Athlete of the Week.

Gomarlo, who was previously named WPI Women's Student-Athlete of the Week, posted a hat-trick and scored a pair of game-winners, while registering a perfect shooting percentage, in the Engineers opening weekend. On Friday, the senior netted the overtime game-winner at Salem State. She followed up with the first home hat-trick since 2010 on Sunday evening versus UMass Dartmouth. 

The forward shares the honor with MIT junior back Hailey Nichols (Boulder, CO), who scored the game-winning goal versus No. 6 Brandeis, while MIT freshman back Maya Nielan (Danville, CA), was selected as the NEWMAC Women's Soccer Defensive Athlete of the Week.

Women's Soccer (2-0) heads to Framingham State Wednesday for a 7pm start.
