The Tech’s Athlete of the Week: Casey Flynn ’10
For the first time in her career Casey M. Flynn ’10 was voted the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Women’s Lacrosse Player of the Week. In a 3-0 week for MIT, she tallied 16 goals, six assists, six groundballs, four caused turnovers, and one draw control.
Last Tuesday against Simmons College, Flynn tied the Institute record for points in a game with eight goals and two assists to go along with four groundballs and four caused turnovers. She totaled five goals and two assists versus Colby-Sawyer College before capping the week on Saturday with three goals and two assists at NEWMAC foe Smith College.
Coming on the heels of her Player of the Week selection, Casey Flynn became only the fifth player in the history of the MIT women’s lacrosse program to score 100 goals by tallying a free-position shot in a 7-3 victory over host Wheaton College.
