Presseau Receives NEWMAC Offensive Athlete of the Week Accolade

AOTW - WPI Women's Basketball 2022

Westwood, MA --- WPI women's basketball senior guard Melanie Presseau (Manchester, NH) was selected as NEWMAC Women's Basketball Athlete of the Week for the week ending on January 9th.

The veteran guard erupted for a career-high 23 points as the Engineers took down Trinity 56-46 last Tuesday in Harrington Auditorium. The senior was 9-of-17 from the field knocking down a career-best five treys and added an assist in the win against the Bantams.

The NEWMAC honor was not the only award for Presseau, the senior was also named to the New England Women's Basketball Association (NEWBA) Honor Roll following her performance last Tuesday.

WPI has now won three-straight contests since the holiday break, with three victories coming versus teams with a combined record of 25-10 through Sunday.

The Crimson and Gray will travel to Middlebury on Tuesday, January 11th, for a contest scheduled for a 4:30pm start.
