Springfield, Mass. - October 7, 2019 - Springfield College's Sara Swetland (Manchester, N.H.) was honored by the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) following a pair of standout performances as she garnered NEWMAC Women's Soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week recognition.
Last week, the Applied Exercise Science major put together two special outings to help Springfield improve to 7-2-1 on the year. In a 6-1 victory over Castleton, Swetland netted her first career hat-trick, including the game-winning goal, as she found the back of the net three times in a span of 9:50. On Saturday, Swetland again netted the game-winning goal and finished with a pair of markers in the Pride's 4-0 shutout of Mount Holyoke.
Swetland and Springfield will continue conference play on Tuesday when it hosts Clark at 4 pm.
