Sara Swetland, Women's Soccer

Sara Swetland (Manchester, N.H.) of the women's soccer team has been named the Springfield College Athletics Maroon Club Female Student-Athlete of the Week following an outstanding performance in the NEWMAC Championship Tournament last week.

Swetland, a sophomore Sports Biology major at Springfield College, was instrumental in the Pride reaching the NEWMAC Championship for the 10th time in the last 11 seasons, as she produced five points on the week on two goals and an assist. Swetland picked up an assist in a 3-1 win over Wheaton in the Quarterfinals, pushing her season total to 11, which broke the Springfield College women's soccer program record for assists in a single season, before returning on Thursday and helping the maroon and white defeat Emerson with a goal and an assist in a 3-1 victory. Swetland added her sixth goal of the season in the championship game, as she scored just 12:12 into the contest against nationally-ranked MIT.
