Offensive Player of the Week

Michaila Parent (Worcester State) – Senior – Forward – Westborough, Mass.
Parent totaled four goals and four assists for 12 points in a 2-0 week for the Lancers, and in doing so became just the second player in program history to reach 100 career points. She scored two goals and assisted on two others in Worcester State's triumphs at Salve Regina (6-3) and Fitchburg State (5-0).

Defensive Player of the Week

Cassidy Windler (Worcester State) – Junior – Back – Holden, Mass.
Windler started the week by recording a pair of defensive saves that allowed the Lancers to record a 6-3 come-from-behind victory on the road at Salve Regina. She then helped lead Worcester State to a 5-0 conference win at Fitchburg State, which managed just nine total shots in the game.

Goalkeeper of the Week

Jess Distler (Plymouth State) – Sophomore – Brookfield, N.H.
Distler totaled 12 saves as the host Panthers opened Little East Conference play with a 2-1 overtime victory over Bridgewater State Saturday. Eight of her 12 stops came in the second half of Plymouth State's lone game of the week.

Rookie of the Week

Samantha Ellis (Southern Maine) – Freshman – Forward – New Vineyard, Maine
Ellis totaled three goals and two assists for eight points to help lead the Huskies to a 3-0 record last week. She was credited with an assist in Southern Maine's 3-0 win at Maine-Farmington for her first collegiate point and then scored two goals with one assist in a 7-1 LEC victory over Salem State; her first career goal was the Huskies' second of the game and proved to be the difference maker. Ellis capped the week by scoring the game-winner in the 67th minute of a 2-1 non-conference win over Manhattanville.
