Repeating as Rookie of the Week, defensive specialist Beatty helped the Eagles sweep UMaine-Machias 3-0 by grabbing 25 digs. Beatty dresesd as the libero in two of the week's three matches, and tallied a total of 46 digs and four assists throughout the week.

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK - Sydney Morton, Husson (Fr., F - Pittsfield, Maine)

In the beginning of the second half against SUNY Canton, Morton stripped a Kangaroo defender of the ball, taking one touch before volleying it past a fast-approaching keeper into the back of the net. She took four shots, three were on goal (.750), and one found the back of the net. Morton's first goal as an Eagle helped secure Husson's first win of the season, 1-0 in the conference opener.
