Orrico Secures NEWMAC Women’s Soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week Accolades

Sofia Orrico

Westwood, MA --- WPI sophomore Sofia Orrico (Bethel, CT) has been selected as the NEWMAC Women's Soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week. The forward was also honored as the WPI Women's Student-Athlete of the Week earlier in the day.

Orrico netted both goals - one in each half – as the Engineers won their first NEWMAC contest of the season Saturday versus Smith. Earlier in the week, the sophomore netted an insurance marker as the Crimson and Gray snapped a four-game skid with a 6-3 result at Roger Williams.

The sophomore is the second WPI student-athlete to be recognized this season as junior Kristen McCrea (Weymouth, MA) was feted for the week ending September 9. Emerson freshman goalkeeper Sophia Giordano (Alamo, CA) was the conference's defensive athlete of the week.

Women's Soccer (7-4, 1-2 NEWMAC) travels to Babson (4-4-2, 1-1 NEWMAC) Tuesday afternoon for a 4pm start.
