Play Safe Turf & Track/NFHCA Division II Defensive Player of the Week
Kaeleigh Lord, Saint Anselm College, Sr., Defender (Keene, New Hampshire)
Last weekend, Lord led the No. 3 Saint Anselm College Hawks to their first-ever Northeast-10 Championship, anchoring a defense which gave up zero goals and only 18 shots over three games to clinch the title. The Hawks earned two shutouts in the quarterfinals and semifinals. In the NE-10 final, Lord and the defense came away with another clean slate, as Saint Anselm took down No. 5 Southern New Hampshire University, 2-0.
Lord was named the NE-10 Tournament's Most Outstanding Player.
Play Safe Turf & Track/NFHCA Division II Offensive Player of the Week
Michelle Lemelin, Saint Anselm College, Sr., Forward (Chelsea, Maine)
Lemelin notched a point in each of No. 3 Saint Anselm College's Northeast-10 Conference Championship games last week. In the quarterfinals on Tuesday against Franklin Pierce University, she scored the game-winning goal. Then in the semifinals against No.7 Assumption College, she assisted on the lone goal of the game to propel the Hawks to the championship. In the finals, Lemelin scored another game winner — the first goal in a 2-0 win over No. 5 Southern New Hampshire University — to give Saint Anselm their first ever NE-10 Championship.
Lemelin was named to the NE-10 All-Championship Team.
