Westwood, MA --- WPI junior Kristen McCrea (Weymouth, MA) has been selected as the NEWMAC Women's Soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week.

McCrea notched a pair of goals, including a game-winner, and three assists in the Engineers 3-0 week. The junior assisted on both goals in a 2-0 result Tuesday at Rhode Island College and tallied another Friday at Fitchburg State. On Sunday, McCrea netted the first (GWG) and third in a 4-0 win versus Framingham State.

It is the first weekly award for McCrea and first for the program since Sophie Gomarlo '18 was recognized at the beginning of last season.

Women's Soccer (4-0) is busy this week, hosting Worcester State Tuesday at 4pm before hitting the road for back-to-back matches this weekend. After a quick ride down Park Ave for a 1:30pm NEWMAC opener Saturday at Clark the Engineers travel to Trinity Sunday for a noon match.
