MIT women’s soccer players Alexandra R. Hrabchak ’19 and Lauren S. Ullmann ’17 were named as the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively, as announced by the league office early afternoon on Tuesday, Nov. 3.
In a 2-0 week for the Engineers, Hrabchak scored four of MIT’s seven goals equaling eight points, which included her first career hat trick in the 4-0 season finale victory over Coast Guard on Saturday afternoon. In both contests this week, Hrabchak also planted the game winners. The freshman midfielder has notched 12 goals and one assist for 25 points and four game winning goals, thus far, over her rookie campaign.
In between the pipes, Ullmann improved her record to 11-6-2 with a pair of wins this week for the Cardinal and Gray. Ullmann made a total of nine saves in two games for the Engineers, including seven against Emerson which clinched the NEWMAC Regular Season Championship for MIT. She also registered her fourth shutout of the season in a 3-0 win against the Lions.
For Hrabchak and Ullmann this is their second career time being selected for NEWMAC Player of the Week accolades.
MIT (11-6-2, 8-2-0 NEWMAC) awaits the winner of the No.4/5 matchup as the No. 1 seed in the NEWMAC women’s soccer tournament. The Engineers have a first round bye and home field advantage throughout the playoffs as the semifinals are slated for Saturday, Nov. 7 at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Roberts Field.
