Westwood, MA --- WPI freshman Abby O'Sullivan (Walpole, MA) has been selected as the NEWMAC Field Hockey Offensive Athlete of the Week.

O'Sullivan, who was also named as the WPI Women's Student-Athlete of the Week, netted both goals in a non-conference triumph versus previously unbeaten Lasell. On Saturday she registered four shots on-goal as the team defeated Springfield for the first time since 1999, providing 11th-year head coach Lisa Moreau her fist win over her alma mater in 14 tries.

It is the first weekly award for the program since then-freshman Hope Shevchuk '17 was tabbed as the defensive honoree on October 21, 2013. WPI Hall of Fame inductee Nicole Maglione '09 was the most recent offensive honoree, as revealed on November 3, 2008.

Field Hockey (6-2) heads down Park Ave Tuesday for a 6pm meeting at Clark.
