Aldrich Named NESCAC Co-Player of the Week

April 12, 2004

AMHERST, MA - Amherst College senior tri-captain Allison Aldrich (Cornwall, VT/Middlebury Union) was named the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Women’s Lacrosse Co-Player of the Week on Monday. Aldrich tallied four goals and an assist in Tuesday’s lopsided 18-8 win at Connecticut College, followed by a five-goal outburst in Saturday’s convincing 14-6 win at Bowdoin College, as the third-ranked Lord Jeffs improved to 8-1 overall and 5-1 in conference play.

Aldrich shares Player of the Week honors with Middlebury College senior Nuala O’Donohoe, who scored nine goals and assisted on three others in a pair of NESCAC wins over Tufts University and Trinity College.

For the season, Aldrich has 34 points on 28 goals and six assists, placing her fifth in the NESCAC in goals per game (3.11) and sixth in points per game (3.78), while upping her career totals to 147 points on 116 goals and 31 assists. Last year, Aldrich, a Second-Team Brine/IWLCA All-New England pick as a sophomore and a two-time All-NESCAC selection, helped lead Amherst to its first-ever national championship in women’s lacrosse, as well as a trip to the national semifinals in 2002 and the national championship game in 2001.

Aldrich is the third Amherst player to earn weekly honors this season. Junior teammate Ashley Harmeling (N. Reading, MA) was named both the NESCAC and ECAC Player of the Week for the period ending March 28, after combining for seven goals and nine assists in a pair of conference wins over Colby and Bates Colleges. Senior Jackie Sargent (Concord, MA) was named the National Player of the Week by Inside Lacrosse for the period ending March 21, scoring four goals and dishing out three assists in a 13-8 win over then eighth-ranked Mary Washington College.

Amherst returns to action Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. against visiting non-league foe Springfield College.
